Denim Insulation Now Available at Lowe’s

There’s been a lot of talk about cotton insulation, but I’ve seen it used in countless projects.  It’s probably worth noting that Bonded Logic’s recycled-content product hit the mainstream with a roll-out of UltraTouch Denim Insulation to 165 Lowe’s stores this month.  The product is made with 80% post-consumer recycled natural fibers and doesn’t have added formaldehyde, VOCs, or chemical irritants, according to Bonded Logic.

Lowe’s offers the R13 and R19 versions, though R21 and R30 can be special ordered.  Pricing is available in select stores; however, for example, I’ve seen a 5-pack of the UltraTouch R19 (15″ x 93″) for $39.97.

In terms of installation, this insulation doesn’t itch like fiberglass insulation and “a portion of each package contains perforations that allow consumers to tear the insulation by hand, similar to a paper towel,” according to a statement by Bonded Logic.

    Nice! When I priced out insulation for an addition I believe the price was much higher than this. As much as I would like to support local material companies, having the large exposure that Lowe’s can bring may bring this product to mainstream acceptance, thereby bringing the cost down even further.

    I really like that it’s 80% recycled fibers and doesn’t have added VOCs. That’s impressive. We bought some new regular R-19 insulation about a year ago and paid the same as what they’re asking for this Denim product.
