I need some direction here. Looking to install insulation between my unfinished basement and my 1st floor living space. I know the rule of thumb is that on kraft faced batts, the paper side should be against the living space. In this case, that means that when you stand in my basement, you should look up and see the “itchy” side.
I dont mind doing it that way, but being that I will be finishing the basement in a few months anyway (adding heat, etc.) the insulation will go from a functional barrier to the cold to more of a sound proofing layer, can I install the insulation so the paper side is in the basement? I hope this makes sense…. I know it is installing the insulation in reverse, but I figured it wouldnt make a big deal given the basement will be finished and have its own heat source in the future.
I dont see any problem
mostly just posting so you can get some response from others
Best and less expensive would be to use unfaced
