ROXUL COMFORTBATT® Residential Stone Wool Insulation

ROXUL COMFORTBATT® is a stone wool insulation product for use in both new residential construction and renovations. This semi-rigid batt has a unique flexible edge designed to compress as the batt is inserted into walls, attics, ceilings and floor frames. The flexible edge springs back, expanding the batt against the frame studs to give a complete fill. ROXUL COMFORTBATT® compensates for normal variations in stud centres caused by distortion or warping. The special flexible characteristic at the insulation edge ensures the expected R-value is achieved.

    Highly recommended, superior performance batt insulation

    ROXUL ComfortBatt provides superior thermal performance that you can depend on. As a contractor, time means money on the job site, and ROXUL installs quickly and easily. As a real estate expert, it always comes down to return on investment. ROXUL checks that box, as well. Top that with the added benefits of being fire and water resistant, plus GreenGuard certified for indoor air quality, and you've got the ideal thermal insulation. As a family man, that added protection is important. It's why I chose ROXUL ComfortBatt for my own home.

    Used it in my basement walls. Great for insulation and very water repellent. Cuts easily. It's a bit finicky and crumbles more readily than I would have expected. Best to figure out exactly where you want it and never move it again.

    I only use ROXUL, I know I put price as a Con but I would price as a Con for everything. I worked once with Fibreglass 30 years ago and never again. I am presently removing all the sagging Fibreglass insulation from my home and replacing it all with ROXUL insulation. I have also built a new 30'x40' Garage last year and insulating it completely with ROXUL insulation.

    Thank you
