In this video clip, I will be talking about insulation tips. Now that our wall is fully framed in, we can go ahead and insulate. When buying insulation, there is a couple of things that you want to look for. First off is the R-value. This insulation has an R-value of 13. When you buy insulation, you want to have the highest R-value possible. When insulation has a higher R-value, it has a better insulation quality so it will insulate your walls a lot better. So when you buy insulation, you want to buy the highest R-value you can possibly find. The next thing that you want to look for is the thickness. This insulation is 3 ½ inches thick. Since we are framing our wall with 2 x 4’s, the wall will actually be 3 ½ inches thick so you want to make sure you don’t buy too thick insulation for a different size wall. Lastly you will need to know how much the roll of insulation will cover so that you can buy enough to cover your entire wall.
