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

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