I need to fill a space in a cathedral ceiling of 11.5" but the info on R38 tells me it is 12" thick, If I use it would I be loosing R value?
Asked by: insulating
Technically, yes, you'd only be getting R37, but most people ignore this. You can google "building insulation compressed R value chart" for more information. There exists a product called R38C which provides R38 at 10 1/4" if you're concerned about it.

Staple on the face or on the side of ceiling joist. What is right according building code?

Asked by: Marian
You'd have to look at your local building code to be sure or ask your inspector, but I've typically seen it installed and installed it myself by stapling on the side, though in certain cases where stapling on the side is difficult or undesirable, I've seen it stapled on the face.

R-38 Kraft Faced Insulation Batts 16 in. x 48 in. is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10.

Bought this to use in the flat part of the ceiling in an attic I was finishing. It worked as expected and I didn't have any issues with packaging or shipping. I find the pink stuff to be softer to the touch than some other brands, but it's slightly harder to cut than some since the kraft facing isn't very stiff, but it's not usually a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good A HD sales person came to my house conducting a Window Replacement project measurement suggested me to apply additional insulation to my attic, so I did the research. I purchased almost a dozen of this R38 insulation and applied them myself to the attic. I can feel a big difference even when I only finished half of the attic that my entire 2nd floor cools down a lot even during weather with strong sunshine. Very happy with it, will see how much cost on heating bill I could save during winter time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Went down well My husband and son put this down in half of our attic. They wore masks, gloves, long sleeves, and their eyeglasses. We had bat exclusion done and the old R19 insulation was pulled up and disposed of. They had to get this down before cold weather. My husband liked these batts much better than those that were excluded! Seriously, he preferred the batts to the rolls. They went down easily and now we're up to R38. We bought enough to do the rest of the attic next year. I could feel a difference right away in the temperature of the two rooms and hallway where this insulation was laid above.
