Answer This Question

A:  From the product website (https://tapinsulation.com/consumers/tap-insulation) The key aspect of TAP Pest Control Insulation that provides the pesticide benefit is the use of a very specialized form of borate material as an additive to the paper fibers.

    Q:I have 1200sqf. With 3 inches or less old insulation. In southern California I need a R38 meaning total of 14 inches. Would that pallet of 38 bags more than enough? Also does the blower come with the delivery?

    Easy to install, free blower machine was nice. A pest control salesman quoted me $8k to apply this same product to my attic. Bought this for about $450, got a free blower rental with it, and a buddy and I knocked it out in 3 hours. Already notice a huge difference with sound and temperature control within the house (had minimal insulation from the 70s prior to applying this product). Time will tell with the pest control.

    I would actually recommend this product.
    This product changed the whole ball game. It blew in nice and easy, and it works better than advertised in my opinion. Acoustically- road noise is gone and I've literally heard cars the entire time I've lived in my current house. We live next to a major highway, so I thought noise was just a given, but this product made a massive difference. Insulation- I blew to an R-value of 60 and it's awesome. Pests- TBD. Seems legit.

      Easy for the DIY guys
      We added 36 bags on top of the fiberglass bats already installed to our attic in an afternoon. Home Depot set us up with a free blower rental, everything worked great. Made a huge difference! Heat pump not running like it was and the house stays at a comfortable 67 without the unit running constantly. Helped with noise too. Over all we are very pleased. The price can't be beat. Now we have an R value of 60+ Cant wait to see if it helps on the utility bill.

        Product is good, Home Depot is not
        The insulation is pretty good, nothing special really, but where this product really falls short is having to deal with Home Depot. The delivery driver that dropped it off was rude, several packages of insulation were busted, then Home Depot wouldn't let us return any of them because this was considered a single item since it is sold as a pallet.

          The insulation shipped fresh. It blew in real easy. Bags that have sat in the store for months can be difficult to break up and don’t blow in easily. Also it was nice to have the 36 bags delivered. It was very noticeable after installation. No more drafts and less outside noise. Should have done this years ago.
