Having a long continuous roll of insulation means that it can be installed for the length of the joist whilst insulation batts are installed in pieces. Insulation rolls are recommended for us in larges areas such as ceilings, where it can be installed easily across joists to eliminate thermal bridging. Insulation rolls can be used to top up ceiling insulation for added thermal performance. When topping up, roll insulation should be installed perpendicular to existing material to minimize air gaps and give it a snug, flawless fit, so that stated R-value is attained.

Insulation Roll Applications
Insulation rolls can be used for a top up layer in ceilings and for walls. When insulating your roof start by laying out insulation at the outer edges of the ceiling space and roll in towards the middle of roof and the manhole access panel. Use the long roll on larger areas and any of-cuts in smaller spaces. For application on walls, start at the top of the wall, hang the insulation down and cut to the required length.
