    A:  Literally there is no 5 pack I have gone round and round with the store and online customer service(for over 4 hours). I got to the store to pick up the 5 pack i ordered and got 1 pack because "the 1 pack model number is what matches the order"

      A:  I just received a pack size of 5. This comes as a shrink wrapped unit with 5 individual bags compressed together. This is how the manufacturer packages them in units of 5 bags to take up less shipping volume. 10 bags fit on a pallet stacked two levels.

                      A:  Sound is absorbed by material it passes through. The denser material will absorb more sound. From my research, rigid foam is best. A couple layers of 1” is better than a 2” sheet. It supposedly disrupts the sound waves differently.

                      Q:I'm planning on using this to finish my basement. The framing is up and I'm ready to install the insulation. Do I need to put any type of barrier between my exterior concrete walls and insulation?

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  I’d suggest rigid foam instead. From my experience, and research, foam is made for foundation and fiberglass is for walls / attics.

                      A:  Is the concrete water tight? If not, (i.e. if there is efflorescence)then consider sealing the concrete otherwise it will be a cavity filled with damp.

                      by|Dec 18, 2020

                      A:  I wouldn’t do since it might trap moisture in the wall and cause other problems.

                      by|Nov 30, 2020

                      A:  Hello JG, as long as there are no moisture issues with the concrete walls the EcoTouch Insulation can be installed directly against the wall. If there are any existing moisture issues we recommend fixing the issues before completing the wall. Thank you for your inquiry!

                        A:  Hello PZ22, We would recommend taking another batt and trimming it to completely fill the cavity width. Leaving a 1" gap within the cavity will allow for thermal loss in that area. Thank you for your inquiry!

                          A:  Cutting a strip to fill the gap should work. Don’t pack it tightly, though, as the insulation properties are compromised when compressed.

                          A:  You could add another 2x4 to reduce the distance. Also, does it reach with extending the tabs on either side?

                          by|Apr 6, 2021

                          A:  I have often just cut a strip off another batt to fill the space. If you are putting wallboard over the insulation, it will hold it in place, or if you prefer, you can put some tape over the seam. You can easily cut insulation using a sharp kitchen knife (preferably with at least 9" blade so as to get through all the insulation as well as the paper facing. Stab it with the point of the knife, then use an up and down motion to "saw" through the insulation and kraft facing.
