Does this material double as an air barrier?

Asked by messman March 8, 2020

Answers

Yes, if the seams are sealed (taped, or similar). But, under a high wind load there is probably some air that will move thru the tiny perforations. However, not enough to make much difference.

Does all surfaces in attic need to be covered

Asked by Kato January 1, 2020

Answer

Dear Kati: First, reflective/radiant barriers like Reach are not effective during the winter because cold cannot be reflected and the warmer air in your home is not radiant. So if you live in an area with cold winters, you should start by blowing at least 12” of cellulose into your attic, over whatever insulation is already there. If you have hot summers, independent testing shows that the most effective way to install a radiant barrier is to simply lay it down on the floor of your attic, over the insulation. This will reflect ~24% of the heat flux from the hot roof and reduce your HVAC bills by ~4%. I hope this is helpful. Mark

Although Silvertanium is a high quality product it is not suitable for your application. It has tiny holes to allow for moisture equalization between the attic interior and the space between rafters. Not a feature useful for covering screens. Besides, it's opaque. There are other products for your needs. You can use six mil vapor barrier, although it is translucent (as opposed to transparent) but is reusable. There's also a thin non reusable transparent product that can be heated with a hairdryer to remove any wrinkles for a truly clear view.

I don't know if this helps detecting roof leaks. Actually it might make it harder to detect roof leaks due to how it needs to be installed. Roof leaks are difficult to locate even without this product, but the energy savings this product yields are worth it. It might be good to inspect the underside of the roof before installing this product as well as the roof itself. Ken

Is it possible to put this on a rollup garage door?

Honestly I don't believe it will help retain cooling as the insulated panels will. Or if your tring to DIY and use this in conjunction with some insulation board and have this over top you may have luck there. They sell insulation kits for garage doors that are very inexpensive. Hope this helps.

Reflective insulations typically require an air gap between them and the outside 'wall'. It is a fact that I'll defer for a physicists to explain. So installation would require stringers which obviously isn't practical. Spray insulation would add an unwanted thickness also.

Asked by Jbonk June 17, 2019

Answers

Dear JBonk: You should staple a reflective / radiant barrier to your rafters only if you have a ridge vent at the peak of the roof for hot air to escape from -- with soffit vents along the bottom edge of the roof that admit cooler air. If your attic is not used for storage, independent tests show that there is a better option: simply lay a radiant barrier down on the floor of the attic, on top of whatever insulation is there. The radiant barrier will reflect ~24% of the heat flux from the hot roof into the rooms below, reducing HVAC costs by ~3% to 4%. A radiant barrier is clearly not a magic bullet solution. The best option is to increase the insulation in your attic -- particularly if you live in an area with cold winters, because a radiant barrier does not work in the winter. Blown cellulose is best for attics; you can install it with one helper to feed the blower that Home Depot rents. Most homes have far too little insulation in the attic, and ceiling joists are typically visible. A chart showing the ideal level of attic insulation is attached below. For info on blown cellulose see: Green Fiber Model # INS541LD, Internet #100318635, Store SKU #211904 I hope this is helpful, Mark

I have been doing a lot of research on Radiant Barrier for a few years. I had several companies send samples for testing. I live in Central FL so I definitely benefit from anything that can help reduce heat in the attic space. I ordered this roll near the end of our summer season and installed it in the space above our garage. There isn't any insulation in that space, and my intention was to hopefully help reduce the heat in the garage during the summer days which makes it nearly impossible to work in there. I had been tracking the temperature in the attic for a while before installing the material with a remote thermometer. After installing the radiant barrier, I saw a reduction in average temperature from 126 deg F. to about 110-112 deg F. at mid-afternoon which was the hottest part of the day. I didn't have a lot of time to gather data before we started cooling off a bit (only in the 80's now rather than the upper 90s ;) but I plan to gather more data when the summer hot season returns. I'll gather temperatures in the attic, in the garage space and overall cooling cost / cycles (I have installed power monitoring system also to monitor AC usage). I also plan to compare the overall effectiveness of this RB with another brand that I ordered from another vendor. So far the only difference I have seen is that the other material is heaver (2 to 3x thicker). Don't know if that will be a big factor, but other than that they are basically equal. Same dimensions, etc. As far as how easy this was to install, it was very easy. I pre-cut the lengths to my desired install length by marking in my garage and driveway with tape then rolling out and cutting the material. Pulling the material up into the attic was a snap since it's so lightweight but surprisingly strong (won't tear easily). I installed by tacking regular construction staples up (Arrow T50 style). It was very easy to pull across the rafters and tack up with staples. Only took about 10 minutes per run and I installed 6 runs overall (3 on each side). I was hoping to reduce the temperature in that space more with the RB, but I'm withholding overall judgement for now since the adjacent attic space was not treated with the RB material so I suspect a lot of the heat was coming from that area and moving into the space I treated with the material. I have a non-contact IR Thermometer that I used also to check the bottom of the deck (bare wood) that is above the radiant barrier compared to the underside of the material after installed. There was a dramatic difference in the temperature there of about 30 degrees or more. Overall, this seems to be a good product and I'll update the review when I get updated data. I have found other vendors that sell the same or similar material at a cheaper price, but be careful as you usually get what you pay for.

Reflective Silvertanium roll was easy to work with, easy to cut, very strong, and did wonders to our bonus room, dropping the temperature as we installed it. Before the heat buildup in this room was too hot to be in there throughout the day, now it is comfortable and the air conditioner do not run that much after adding the film. Would highly recommend

My wife has a metal 'she shed' bought early in 2017 we use it for extra storage and she also decided to use it for her hobbies, however during the summer months plus late spring and early fall she could not use it due to the heat as it felt like an oven! A good part of the solution of having the whole shed (12' x 19') covered inside by foam insulation (including the metal roof). I then added radiant barrier particleboard to the walls. The problem was this was impractical for the roof which also has two attic storage areas either side making it difficult to work on. The answer was the 'Reach Barrier' product! I ordered it through Home Depot online about 10 days ago and just installed it this past weekend (5/26 - 5/28) this added an extra shield against the heat for the summer and is indeed already noticeable! It came in a 48" x 250' roll, easy to work with, was very strong (did not rip etc. I just used a Stanley knife to cut it) I pre-sized pieces before they were attached to the roof using staples and though hard work because of the cramped conditions in some areas it set up nicely. I will also add it to the double doors to reduce the impact of that area as well using contact adhesive on them (though double sided tape can be used). This is truly a remarkable solution for house attic insulation and in this case, a shed!

This product fairly inexpensive and is easy to install. All you need is tape measure, scissors and a staple gun. It does a good job of reflecting heat when install correctly and has a low E as well. To be most effective you should have a ventilated attic. If you don't ventilate the attic it will reduce the heat coming in but will also reduce the heat leaving so you will trap what heat does get in during the day. To see a video of me install it go to youtube and search for yensoftware attic radiant barrier (https://youtu.be/xNcLMtFzKJ0 )

Purchased this and installed in my shed just tacking it to the bottom of the rafters and the wall studs, then installed Masonite panels for a finished look. Wow, this dropped the temp in the shed by a good 10 - 15 degrees. The product is very tuff, just rolled it around the room, and used a staple gun to attach to the walls. My shed is a 10 x 20, so I used about 2/3rds of the roll to enclose the entire thing. Way worth the money spent, glad I did it. shed is now like being under a tree.
