Did this video help you?

Keith Pleas: The real reason not to use "inset stapling" as shown in the video is that it's not code compliant, and that's because it increases the fire hazard by creating small vertical air channels without insulation.´╗┐

toology55: spray foam´╗┐

mission762008: @vandemusser Hey I just read your comment..I'm going to do this in the near future, are you saying that you should staple on the 2x side? Wouldn't the sheetrock then be offset??

CTJ420: @mission762008 Yod are supposed to staple on the 2x stud side but staple hard enough to make the staple level....just think if you had 200-300 staple half assed in and sticking out, it would be a pretty big pain for drywall, BUT just hit the dam staple hammer harder!

usalydia: It make sense what you are saying vandemusser. Thank you for your thoughts, :-)))

Jeffrey Pierson: excellent video, exactly what I was looking for when attempting to install insulation in my bathroom renovation project. Thanks a bunch.

Felipe jaime: good vid...I like it....and i like her....=)

kosmosleha: there is a 1910 house for sale and it has this fiberglass put in from the outside of the house. I could see it because the siding is missing on the rear of the house. From outside, there is fiberglass insulation, and it is covered with thin boards. Is this normal to put fiberglass on the outside of the house? Thank you!

pegobuilders: External wall insulation is a technology developed to improve the thermal performance of buildings by the application of an insulating layer and a decorative weatherproof finish applied to the external wall surfaces of a building

patricia bucey: thank you vandemusser i just fired a installer on my addition, he didnt believe me

soulassassin0g: The pink panther might be dead but at least he wont burn in hell thanks to all that owens corning fiberglass insulation he has inhaled over the years.

Jennifer Jones: Great Video!

obeytheviszla: Are you kidding Owenscorning? This is not how to correctly install fiberglass. see another youtube tutorial: 6_2 Proper Installation of Fiberglass Insulation.wmv

y2knoproblem: use denim

y0utube1973: I thought the same thing.I have been reading about insulation install a lot and seeing that the video shows to staple inside the stud is not effective. Staple on top of the studs and as you said this way it doesnt squeeze the edges of the insulation thus reducing it's effectiveness.

T.J. Ash: Obeythewhatever you do not have a clue. Why even open your mouth?

Cory Boehs: spray foam insulation all the way, not fiberglass

Daniel: If you use a polyester batt instead you do not need to wear gloves or a mask. Making it much safer and easier to install.

LegendaryDesi: @vandemusser Very nice info, thanks for sharing your insight. It will come in handy

vandemusser: mission762008: Drywall installers like to complain about that. Also, the advocates of gluing behind drywall also don't like it. But honestly, you shouldn't need to glue drywall. As for the installers, it's really not a big deal. They say that the inconsistent surface due to the tabs and the staples make it harder for them. I say it's worth the negligible extra effort considering the improvement in the insulation performance.

patricia bucey: @vandemusser thank you just fired company they didnt believe me on stapling on 2x side.

vandemusser: As a home energy rater, there are some things they do ni this video that we do not recommend. Inset stapling is a no-no, since it compresses insulation at the edges, meaning it will reduce the performance. Staple to the face of the studs instead. This will keep the insulation performing properly. Also, do not use the scraps around the windows and doors. Use a low-expanding spray foam instead - it is a much better air seal than compressed fiberglass insulation.

Chikana Girl: your recommendation is so valuable, since yeah, its much much better to use the foam around the windows N doors. thanks :)
