Each package contains both a square foot and linear foot label.

Simple insulation question.


Based on that 48.96 ftyou will need anywhere from 7-9 batt rolls depending on how you cut. You say the floor between floors.. are you insulating for warmth in a two story or are you trying to dampen sound?
