    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!!

    Easy to install - because batts are shorter - and easy to cut. It stays in the ceiling without support. The air in the ROXUL space does not echo, that's probably the source of the "soundproofing" claim. This does not stop other noise from coming in. I cannot speak to its waterproofing or fire resistant claims. I neither soaked it or burned it. lol
