Installing ceiling over insulation
 
I've removed the 12 x 12 tiles and the old insulation in the garage ceiling. The 1 x 1s that held the tiles are still there. I can get the bat insulation through them and they hole it in place. My question is, Should I removed the 1 x 1 so that the insulation is tight with the drywall ceiling? Also, has anyone here used Guardian Insulation? It's half the cost of Owens Corning.

Why would you not be installing it from above the old ceiling?
It needs to be stapled in place to pull it tight to the joist not just resting on the 1X's.

I am placing the facing against the bedroom floor (garage ceiling) as a vapor barrier. I am then covering the garage ceiling with fire resistant sheetrock.
