Hey can anyone identify this for me and any health concerns?

The insulation is in the form of BATTS...however it looks like multiple papers layered and then stitched together. The paper has the consistency of party streamers, in that it is kinda ruffled.

My question is:

What is it called? What is the flammability factor? Health factor (any carcinogenics)? Method of removal (safety gear)?

Hello Harvey,


I've seen that insulation several times and I really don't think there is a name to it. (Paper, as far as I'm concerned). There are definitely no health concerns with this insulation whatsoever. Except the fact that it is flammable. When I see it, I always recommend removal and to add an R-36 value to attic area.


What's up with the new membership?

Thanks for the welcome…and yes I was told…I mean encouraged by Gerry Beaumont to drop the professional looking car salesman look and instead let all you guys see the real me…so here is me with my hair (or lack of it) down.


By the way, I also want to take a moment to thank all of you who supported me during these last months while I was going through this very hard time. The days ahead will still be hard...but with the support from my family and friends, this to shall pass!

Thanks David.


As far as the New Membership Account, I was waiting for Chris to email me my password to my account as it had been so long since I had used it that I forgot it.
