    I am using this in my basement. At first, I didn't know what product to use wondering if everything I heard and saw in videos was just a hoax (you know, pay a contractor to advertise your product for kick backs?!) I searched through my photos of the work that was done on my main floor and saw that the contractor didn't use ROXUL. He has up and vanished so not much I can do now. But, after much debate (with myself) and watching MANY YouTube videos, I decided to go with what my gut told me and it was ROXUL! I am using the SnS and the Thermal for my little ~400sq.ft basement. I need to rent it out so I want the renter to be a.) safe and sound b.) comfortable c.) comfy and cozy and d.) not to hear me and my son upstairs :) It was so easy to use and yes, using my KitchenAid bread knife made it so much easier!! Thank you for making such a great product that is safe and reliable and easy to use! I can't afford to hire a contractor to finish my whole basement, so I am doing as much as I can with the help of my videos and my 67-year old Italian father :) Buying a 92-year old was a good idea...on paper >:I
    THANK YOU!!

    Just so messy to use and really didn't prevent a lot of sound being transferred. Was more expensive than req. insulation and not worth the dust & mess it made. Not that easy to cut either and just so dusty and falling apart. Wear safety googles when using this product.

    Installed this product in our basement to dampen the sound of the entertainment system down there. It was very easy to install and provided great soundproofing!

      Comments about ROXUL SAFE'n'SOUND®:

      I placed the product in our home as the contractor was finishing the framing and before the sheet rock went up. The house began to be quieter as each wall was completed with the ROXUL. I believe this will make our house quieter and safer from fires because of the thickness of the ROXUL Safe and Sound product.

      We moved into a great house and property, but it's near a busy road and the noise is a problem in the bedrooms. When we built a new bedroom in the basement, we wanted it to be nice and quiet, not only from the road noise but also from noise above. We lined the walls and ceiling with ROXUL Safe N' Sound and it's like being in a "Cone of Silence"! It's my favourite room in the house!
