I've used the Roxul product in two forms - as sound-proofing material and as insulation. Installation was easy - just cut the material with a long-bladed knife per the manufacturer's recommendations and lay it between joists. Take your time and cut accurately because this stuff doesn't work well when it's crushed. The sound proofing really works well. We had an upstairs bathroom renovation in a seasonal residence that had PVC waste lines crossing over the dining room. Not attractive until the insulation killed almost all of the noise. I'm using the same stuff to soundproof the ceiling in the basement home theater with good results. Found it at a big box store . . .

This sounds like a great alternative. Why isn't FHB giving us links to manufacturers & more info, and pricing info (rather than "$1.00 (As of 1/1/1900)"
