  1. Insulation
    So I'm finished running all of the electrical in my music room so I'm looking to put up some insulation. I saw a lot of people mentioned and talked about Roxul Safe and Sound but is it really worth the hefty price tag? I saw a couple of other videos that say no and that any insulation is better...
  2. Insulation
    I'm preparing to finish my basement, and I'm trying to figure out what combination of materials to use for insulating the walls. I'm going to use XPS, based on the information I've gathered from this site. I've considered 2" XPS with no cavity fill, but I'm leaning towards 1" XPS, 2x4 framed...
  3. Insulation
    So I now have a detached garage workshop with metal siding and 24" 2x4 frame. I plan to install Roxul Comfort Batt (R14) on the walls and then put up Pactive house wrap as my vapor barrier and then dry wall over it all. The roof has 2x6 and will get R30 Comfort Batt (5-1/2") vapor barrier and...
  4. Insulation
    Anyone have experience dealing with these two sound barrier products? Can you shed some light on their effectiveness and which one might be better? They are practically the same price ($60 for 32 sq ft). Or is there a better alternative? I'm up for using unconventional/innovative/improvised...
  5. Insulation
    I pulled off the paneling in my living room to re-insulate and drywall it, and found a brick wall in the middle of the wall - it's the chimney from my basement fireplace. There was no insulation over the chimney, and they had some fibreglass insulation beside it... my question is: What can I...
  6. Insulation
    I would like to install Roxul(stone wool) insulation under subfloor. I am located in NY, Long Island. Roxul will be installed in a vented crawlspace. Since Roxul is not kraft-paper-faced like fiberglass, do I have to install vapor barrier between batts and subfloor? If I do, then what kind...
  7. Insulation
    The pictures show where the shower used to be. You can see the stucco is the only thing left in spots. The house is in zone 4c (Tacoma, WA), it was constructed in the early 1950s and the exterior wall, sill, rim joist and a few floor joists all needed to be replaced. Now that its done, it's...
  8. Insulation
    I am a DIY home owner building a house and have installed a lot of Roxul AFB 316 sound batting in my interior walls. I was also planning on putting it in my floor, but after 3 weeks with doors and windows open there is still a very strong smell coming from it. I have called Roxul several times...
  9. Remodeling
    My landlord is also my oldest and dearest friend and he lets me do whatever I want. I recently remodeled the kitchen/living area and will be starting the bedroom soon. There's one wall that is the common wall with the apartment next door and there's no insulation. Temperature isn't the problem...
  10. Building & Construction
    Anyone know where I can get Roxul insulation in the Baltimore area? 84 Lumber seems to be the only supplier, but they don't stock it and have a $500 minimum order. I only need a few bags for a bedroom remodel.
