  1. I wish I could get this gentleman to come do this in my house. Some1 tell me it is possible to hire this man for this type of project.

  2. This type of job need to be by a professional or any one can do it and what about code

  3. I have an attic ceiling that has no insulation, but it has beams that ceiling board was nailed to. Would it be better to add loose insulation without removing the whole board, or removing the boards, lay batting, and put the boards back? Thank you!

  4. If I needed someone to shown me how to frame a house I would typed that in ! HOW DOES THE ITCH BLOWER WORK ? Video showed nothing on how the blower worked !!

  5. Why aren't the air seal prevention, caulking, boxes, etc, put in place when the house is built & before insulating? I guess costs are a factor, possibly time as well. If I am purchasing a new(er) home, I would expect that to be part of the build. Apparently, we just assumed or not aware it was needed? Education is key!!!

    Thank you such a thorough explanation; I wish I had that much space available in my attic. One must crawl on their belly!!! Not able to stand up! ????

  6. Is using bat’s and blowing on top a better way to insulate an attic, or using blown only.

  7. Thank you for mentioning the rafter vents. We just bought a house that has blown insulation very high in the attic, but they didn't put in rafter vents/baffles first. ???? And there is a small amount of mold on the ceiling of the roof.

  8. This guy while filming: "… you want me to do what? For real? Guys this is getting a bit much."

  9. I live in Southern California my house is about 1200 square feet. There is no insulation in the Attic. In the morning the house stays cool but gradually through the day it's on believably hot. I wonder if doing insulation would help the situation. Is anyone could give me a comment I'd appreciate

  10. Great video. Makes a daunting project really seem doable. Now to get my hands on that blower…

  11. The guy is a combination of Bradley Cooper and the guy from Action Lab Channel

  12. Pro tip. Cover everywhere clothes aren't such as your neck face and wrists with baby powder then shower in COLD water to rinse any fiberglass off you.

  13. good grief, I thought blowing insulation was quick and easy…this guy has me doing so many things it will take weeks and time off work to get this done… there's got to be an easier way.

  14. I want this guy to come to my house and do this. Never seen anyone take that much time to do prep work and care. Everyone just blows it in and f u pay me!! Great video

  15. The worst insulation to use.
    Air flows up through it it’s the most stupid product to use. Do not use the fibreglass ????‍♂️
