Sound is measured by STC (Sound Transmission class) which is a rating for a wall system, not the individual components. Insulation absorbs sound in the wall cavity helping to lower the amount of sound that travels from one room to the next. The amount of change from the insulation depends on the type of assembly.

Question

How to secure R19 fiberglass insulation in crawlspace?

Asked by
helo
GA
about R-19 Kraft Faced Insulation Continuous Roll 15 in. x 39.2 ft. on
February 11, 2015
I am about to install R-19 faced fiberglass insulation in my unconditioned crawlspace. I've already put 6 millimeter polyethylene sheeting over the bare ground to help keep moisture out but am concerned that the insulation will start to sag over time. The floor joists' are 2" x 10" so the insulation will not fill the cavity as the insulation is only 6.25 inches thick. Since the insulation will be installed with the face up to the floor I won't be able to staple it. I've been told the straight wire retainers don't work so well. I'm now at the point that I don't know what to do. Any suggestions? Thanks.

You can visit the following website, which has a very helpful installation video for Unconditioned Crawlspaces. http://insulation.owenscorning.com/homeowners/customer-support/installation-videos/ You can use strapping, or as shown in the video, "sharks teeth", which may have a different name depending upon who you ask. These are thin metal rods that are fit in between the floor joists, which help support the insulation. I hope this information is helpful. You can also contact someone at your local Home Depot Pro Desk area, or call 1-800-HOME-DEPOT
1-800-(466-3337) and a customer service representative will be more than happy to assist you. Thank you for your inquiry!

Since you are using Kraft Faced insulation, you can staple the flanges to the joist to assist in holding the insulation in place until you drywall. Someone at your local Home Depot will be able to help you determine the correct staples and stapler to use for your application. Thank you for your inquiry, and good luck with your project!

Thank you for your inquiry. We suggest you refer to your local codes in order to determine if R19 is recommended for crawl space walls. If R19 is recommended for crawl space walls, R19 is made to fit 2x6 studs/walls. I'm guessing that the floor/ceiling joists are 2 x 10 or larger, so code will more than likely require a higher R value for that. The Owens Corning website provides videos for both conditioned and unconditioned crawl spaces. The videos should be able to assist your application. Please reach out if you have further questions.

You will need to check with your state building code for R values for crawlspaces. As far as the vapor retarder goes, again, this is ultimately a building code issue, but generally the vapor retarder is installed toward the "lived-in" side, that is, facing up toward the subfloor.

If your basement is conditioned (Heated and cooled), and you would use unfaced insulation in the ceiling area. If it is not conditioned (Heated and cooled), then you would use faced insulation, and the facing would be installed towards the conditioned side of your home (warm in winter side), so you would see pink if you look at the ceiling in your basement. Fiberglass insulation is manufactured to friction fit in your joists so stapling is not required. It would also be recommended that you consult your local building code as there may be specific requirements in your area for your project.
