    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.

          Perfect for the first line of defense in my home theatre soundproofing. Even with just one layer it cut the sound from nearby rooms. Layered between MLV and DD/GG no sound gets in our out.

              This product has amazing soundproofing ability. Combine that with the ease of installation and you you get an A+. Unlike other insulations it does not create a lot of dust when cutting, and does not cause itching when in contact with skin. I definitely feel this is the next generation of insulating products.
