Did this video help you?

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

Tom 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.

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?

Rob: How do you insulate around a Central heating system in the attic ?

Sean M: The host states that the cellulose they just spread was insufficient according to the building code. A little misleading. ANY amount is an improvement to that existing insulation. For permitted new construction...yes. But not for this job.

nick acuna: my attic is in a similar situation. I want to do the same thing in this video. how much will this insulatuon material cost?

PipersSon: Waste Paper!, Waste Paper! of course we have NEVER USED IT, and Never Will. We deal with prominent builders, housing associations, landlords with hundreds of properiies, we also deal with the insulation of large hospitals, schools and army barracks, do you think we would dare APPROACH our clients with that junk. Just one whisper that we've used it would get us banned by these prominent firms. After 50 years trading do you think we are going to attempt the QUICK CON on our clients. You're market is the gullible fools, the elderly and slow witted, we deal with HOUSING ENGINEERS AND qualified architects. Take it back to the public landfill areas it came from and dump it.

Michael Tamburri: Hey folks. You want to work for a company with international opportunity.How about the opportunity to help millions of people around the world. Does your current job have integrity, trust, and unity among its employees.We believe we have the Best compensation plan in the MLM business to date.Lets build a new life filled with time and cash freedom. Contact me if your willing to work, build your own business, and have a better life.

Jason T: what is better for attic blown in or batt and fiberglass or rock wool?

Timothy PleX: What about checking for air leaks?

Mike Mendes: This is totally the wrong solution! Insulating without airsealing is MALPRACTICE! All top plates, vent penetrations, recessed lights, etc need to be air sealed with spray foam. Then cellulose should be blown up to R-60 in any cold part of the country. Using fiberglass batts is a waste of money since they don't work worth a darn unless completely enclosed. These people may have been on a budget, but they completely wasted their money with this process.
