Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good luck finding an insulation blower Nice insulation. However, the blower equipment that you need to install it is extremely difficult to find. Independent rental stores don't carry it because it is unreliable and breaks down. There are only two units in all of Edmonton at one Home Depot location (despite that all five locations sell the insulation) and the units are constantly booked. If you want to seriously delay your project, just buy this insulation and wait for weeks to rent the blower.

How many bags to insulate 106 linear feet of 8' high walls of 2"x4" construction on 16" centers?

Asked by: Kevin
This is not a good product for insulating walls. It is a loose fill and will settle for some time after being placed, leaving a gap at the top of the wall.

Recently had my roof re-shingled. Had lots of snow and negative temperatures. Evidence of moisture in the attic on wood, but not current fiber insulation. If there is dampness in the attic, how will this impact this product, being treated with boric acid?

Asked by: Will
product says its moisture proof so should be good

I have partial insulation with fiberglass batt in my attic area. Can I spray this over top and would that mean I need less blown-in insulation to achieve proper R value rating?

Asked by: canucklehead
Yes That's what I did - sprayed it over the existing insulation. You wouldn't need as much to get the same r value but I figured as though it wasn't there and piled it high.

Hi. I would like to use this product in my vented attic. Does it act as a vapour barrier as well or would i need to install one? R

Asked by: Robster
Cellulose is NOT a vapour barrier. Neither is Fiberglass. You will need to have a vapour barrier installed before installing either of those products.

What is the R-value of this insulation?

Asked by: Anonymous
It is R3.8 per inch of insulation thickness. To get R60 in your attic install it at 17.75" thick and it will settle to 15.8" thick. The back fo the bag will give you the thicknesses required for other R values.

Specs say 40 sq' coverage per bag = R60. Someone asked in these Qs how many bags to do 1800 sq' attic to R60. You replied 105 bags. According to 40 sq' per bag this should only need 45 bags. Am i missing something?

Asked by: canucklehead
The specs you list are not true. For R50 you would get approx 14 sq ft per bag so R60 would be approx 12 sq ft. I am an insulation contractor and use this product regularly.
