Did this video help you?

Odorous Smegma: I have layers of racoon and possum feces up in my attic. Will this increase the R value of the existing insulation up there?

Masterg Samuraixmen: those masks are useless

D Corman: A good job would be to insulate the roof, then the floor. Cover the roof and floor with good plywood, and you have a space to move in ...

Antonio Popa: If you are privileged enough to have an attic, why would you waste the extra space with insulation that you need a respirator to be around? In the end you're left with what, 3 metres of space, and 2 metres of walking space. That's 5 metres of attic. Also, insulating the floor isn't gonna make the attic any warmer.

Catherine Fitzgerald: Hello, I see that you did not put any venting in. Should this also be done?

Pooop Me: Was the house already air sealed? This seems like BS to me. Sales video for Insulation companies.

Mike Cerqua: I make custom sized insulated attic hatches sealed with magnetic weatherstripping send us your measurements and we will send you the size you need! great for replacing existing attic hatch doors without the need to cut wood and drywall!

786otto: forget the insulation , how about those 2X4 rood rafters?

maca attack: that has asbestos
that why did blow it
please be careful

Bob O: You turn a huge attic into a tiny storage area. Bad idea

MONEYBAGS603: look at all the asbestos what the hell are they doing????

Dennis Adams: I think Tommy missed the mark here... This is a quick solution but overall, bad advice . I assume this old house leaks air into the attic a lot.

John Smith: I hate that freaking pink insulation that stuff will eat your ass up

kay cee jay: its so crazy and irresponsible to teach people to stuff even more toxic stuff in their own house so they'll get sick, allergies or even cancer breathing all this in for 24/7 .... please folks make more research on e.g. hemp materials, save and non toxic

wonthefight: @This Old House, why didn't you do an air seal?

jan jansen: it is better to use that roominstead of insulate it overal jesus christ this is idiotic !

jan jansen: you have to insulate the saddleroof not your attic !

C.Duncan Sutherland: Hey, this great thank you. However, I did not hear mention of a vapor barrier. Was there one needed? The old isolation that was left and added to did not seem to have one either. I have a very similar situation and I am hoping you can answer my question before I proceed with the solution you presented in this video, thank You!

S.R. Hurst: No mention of soffit vents or insulated attic hatches or any sort of ventilation which would be a mighty big concern with beefed up insulation.

R H: how flammable is this cellulose stuff? Is it a potential fire hazard?
