How would i install in a ceiling? Since there's no backing, i know i can't staple it in . . .

Asked by Meli June 30, 2016

Answers

For walls, this insulation stays in place as a "friction fit", for ceiling installation you would need some temporary support to hold the insulation batting up, until your drywall for ceiling is in place. Many people don't insulate ceiling of basement; but I understand you are doing this more for sound proofing. (sound proofing acoustic foam could also work) Insulation in basement ceiling will also have more obstructions like plumbing, electrical wires and air ducts -and can require more time/cost for future maint work in basement. Before putting up the insulation, tack small nails (with at least 1/8-inch heads) to the ceiling joists -spaced about 2ft apart -leaving nail heads sticking out about 1/4 inch. (these may be placed on bottom of 2x8 joist, but it works better to place them on SIDE of joist, about 1 inch from bottom, angled up about 30 degrees) As you place batting UP in ceiling, use string to run Zig-Zag pattern looping arount head of nails and support batting, until drywall is added to ceiling. You can use same set of nails to support insulation on left AND right of the same ceiling/floor joist, so only need one row of nails per board. (string crosses over) Just leave the string in place, as you put your drywall on ceiling. When putting up drywall in ceiling, be sure to add access panels for water+gas shut-off valves, or pressure regulator... You may also be using a drop-ceiling (with removable panels) in the basement. (This will allow for easier maint/upgrade work 5 years later) With a drop-ceiling the string supports will be the only support which holds insulation batting between floor/ceiling joists, and you may want to add a second zig-zag string to nails, giving an "X" pattern, or space the nails closer together, so batting does not sag over time. ALSO: I advise taking photos BEFORE all work, and making detailed notes about all locations for plumbing, electrical, junction boxes, TV-cable, ducts, gas-pipes, and drain lines supporting the living area above your basement. ALL houses need maint/repair/renovation eventually, so you want to know where everything is located in that ceiling, before you close things up. Make printed copies for your "House File" that can be given to a work crew years from now, or even provided to new owners if/when you sell the house. ** Think ahead, and save headaches later **

How thick is this insulation?

What I received was only 5", which is wrong and does not fulfill specification or R-rating. Via HomeDepot I contacted the manufacturer for rectification, they send me additional insulation for free.

Yes. The 15" is made for wood studs. The 16" is for metal studs.

Sizing to fit opening

If you get the correct width for your application, you are all set. Because tearing this product is really easy. There are no "perforations." You just reach into it (with gloves) and tear it. It will tear ACROSS the baton very easily allowing you to tailor the length of each piece. However, if you try to tear it LENGTHWISE (not across), you will find it very difficult. So that is why I say to get the correct WIDTH and you're all set. Tearing the length off is easy and can be done by hand at the time of install (even without a knife).

You'd have to spray the paint. Doubt you could roll on it. As far as the acoustics, painting it could make the surface "smoother" which would reflect the sound instead of distorting it like a rough surface will.

This product is easy to use and safe to handle without gloves unlike fiberglass insulation. You can easily tear the insulation for the right size. I used a handsaw to start a nice clean square cut and then would tear the rest. There is a perforation lengthwise if you need a smaller width. I just wished Home Depot stocked this item in its stores.

Easy handling & installation. This size (4 foot bats) perfect for underfloor application (e.g., crawlspace). Used tie-wire on 6p nails pre-installed as support grid. Relatively easy to cut or tear (with some effort) by hand or with box-cutter, for tight fit areas. Some dust issues as fibers erupt when tearing, but just minor, no big deal. Wore eye protection only, no face mask needed.

I bought about 16 pallets of this R30 the insulate the Quonset hut type roof of one of our buildings that had blow on type cellulose that was thin and ineffective, I could not hire any local company to do the job as no one wanted to do it, so we had to do it ourselves, we did have to cover with chicken wire to hold it because ribs are 48"X48" then I sprayed whole thing flat black with dry fall paint. This product was much easier than fiberglass or god forbid rock wool, I would almost say it's fun and cozy, but still little dusty, excellent product, may never use fiberglass again.

The insulation was light weight, so I could easily drag a pack of five up the stairs. The packaging was sturdy enough that it did not tear while moving packs around. Since the product does not require special protective gear, installation was very quick and easy. Now I am simply waiting for the next hot summer day to see what the impact is on keeping my house cool. It's more expensive than Fiberglas but so much more easy to handle.

We were amazed to find R-30 insulation made of 80% post-consumer recycled material. We got it for our tiny house on wheels, to insulate the subfloor and the ceiling. It was easy to install because we could rip it by hand to fit it around the wheel wells. With our house being so small and so well insulated, it will be very easy to heat this winter!

I bought this for my attic - I removed old fiberglass batts between my attic floor joists and replaced with these denim batts. It's quiet, warm, fits right for 16" on center framing, and is great to work with - no itch, just a dust mask needed. However cutting is a challenge, so your project may take a bit longer. After researching sites & reviews to find out how best to cut, I got an inexpensive insulation saw for cut outs (just like a long bread knife). You might even buy two for a big job - any blade will dull over time on this stuff. For long rip cuts, the web description said these came pre-perforated for tearing into strips, but my order didn't for some reason. Based on another web review, I used my portable table saw which worked great - just be safe when doing this (blade at full height, blade guard off, one pass, flip over, 2nd pass - and use a guide stick) Cost is about double fiberglass and I think more than mineral batts, but I'd prefer living in a house filled with blue jeans any day. Enjoy!

First the bad: 1. This stuff is supposed to be 8" thick and the manufacturer states that shaking it will restore the loft lost in packaging. Shaking really has little effect and the maximum thickness that I got was about 6 inches. 2. The company's video shows it being installed without any protection. Nice try...this stuff is extremely dusty and while it isn't nearly irritating as fiberglass it doesn't take long to get a nose full of blue. Wear a dust mask and save some sniffles. 3. A utility knife won't touch this stuff....I used a cordless skill saw that worked well because of its slower speed. 4. The product is available in 15" and 16" widths with no guidance as to why. The good: 1. No itch 2. Easy to handle 3. Stays put 4. Much better to work with fiberglass
