Ultra Touch Denim Insulation Is In
Ultra Touch blue jean denim insulation by Bonded Logic
We chose to use Ultra Touch eco-friendly blue jean/denim batt insulation for the walls and floor of the house. The front wall and under the house calls for R-19 and the rest of the walls are R-13. We spent about $1000 for the material and did the install ourselves over 2 days.
Spray insulation will go in the roof and will be done next week – the week of 4/13/2015. More on that in a later post.
