Did this video help you?

Mickey Cook: I watch this show on You Tube and the the TV....... it's just too bad we don't have these type of craftsmen in the Houston area...... where things are very often built the "Houston way".......... aka, build it so it "lasts" a year, after which, the warranty is up and it is the homeowners problem. See these poor workmanship issues all over town. Especially on the west and northwest side. Pretty sad.

the dyslexic: Doesn't shaving off the top "skin" of the foam diminish the vapour barrier effectiveness...or can you combat that by spraying in two or three goes?

alwaysrockn2009: Great video!!!

Livin In A Box: At 2:40 the guy talks about a vapour retarder, would this be something to go on both sides if you get hot and cold weather ? I'm wondering if it would need to go next to the exterior wall and on the other side next to the interior wall.

spacecadet28: So why is fiberglass most commonly used?

Aaron Beer: I made it too. Want to know how ? just go to woodprix webpage.

zobomaz: how about rock wool insulation ? the fire proof insulation?

Arafet Kanso: Very informative for R values, but nothing else was explained like fire retardant

Jamie FM: which is best for a sound proof wall ?

Kurtis Lee: bear in mind folk's ..... these men do not make their living in the contracting business. They are entertainers and product pushers.

ximenoworks: Nothing was mentioned about Stone Wool or Roxul or fire prevention.

orlos The Druid: This was a GREAT informative piece....thanks!

esclavosoy: I live in an old house in Fresno, Ca and have hot summers and cold winters. I want to blow in insulation but I'm afraid I'll get mold. What do you guys suggest?

RedSquirreLx: can you leave the spray foam exposed? ( in garage) is it bad for ur health to?

Jerry John: Thank you so much! This is awesome information for a first time home owner like me

Chris Fetko: Fiberglass is a waist and blue jeans are not much better my opinion having experience is cellulose or Sprayfoam

Kenz300 x: Climate Change is real.... it will impact all of us......we need to move to clean energy production with wind and solar power and clean energy consumption with electric vehicles......... Fossil fuels are the cause of Climate Change..... we need to deal with the cause....

dave12546: why didn't they say the R -factor of the blue jeans and fiberglass?? didn't they know??

NEWMAN!: This is strictly a show... not interactive. I hate to say but TOH disapoints me in the fact that they don't reply to questions :(

RichBshine1972: I'm surprised you didn't speak of roxul insulation it's water fire and mold resistant and has a good r value
