Re: Insulation question:

Does the wrapping degrade the insulation's ability to block sound at all? Also, how would I attach it to my ceiling joists?

Re: Insulation question:

No it does not degrade.

It would be "friction-fit" into the joists. You could use wires to hold up in there. Personally, I'd use the Kraft paper face and staple to joists. But that's just me.

Due to cost for some other reason? Thanks again for the help!

Re: Insulation question:

I find the paper + staples is neat and fast and no looking behind be to see if the indulation's falling out.

As I've never insulated a ceiling before, would you prefer batts or rolls? Each run of joists would be 134" long if that matters.

Re: Insulation question:

I'm good with either. Faster with rolls

Re: Insulation question:

The plastic wrapped insulation has wings on it for stapling like the Kraft backed stuff does. Once you try the plastic wrapped stuff you will never use the Kraft paper insulation again. If you use the rolls you would simply cut it to 134" and put it up, if you use the batts you would have two pieces per 134" span. Don't forget to use your wifes electric knife
