    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.

      Comments about ROXUL SAFE'n'SOUND®:

      Our home was built in the 1930s so the sound proofing was lacking. Since installing ROXUL in the various rooms of our home as we been remodeling, we have noticed the noise has been reduced. My wife tells me I am a heavy walker but she is pleased that in the rooms that have been improved she can no longer hear my footsteps, which may or may not be a good thing.

      Comments about ROXUL SAFE'n'SOUND®:

      I built a suite for myself and daughter in the basement of my house so we could rent out the upper rooms to supplement income. Before the renovation the sound transmission from the upper floor was totally unacceptable. You could practically hear a mouse break wind, and a person walking above you sounded like a drum. I insulated the ceilings and the walls. After the renovation I knew it was quieter but I didn't realize how effective it was until I knocked on my daughter's door to ask her a question. I could tell that there was music playing, but when she opened the door I couldn't believe how loud it was! having this first-hand experience, I wouldn't use anything else. Ever. -Karen

          This is an awesome product especially when you are finishing rooms in a basement and you don't want the sounds from upstairs to transfer to the lower level.
