Radiant Barrier


Recommended Posts

I have come across some homes with spray on radiant barriers. I live in a 30 yr old doublewide in Houston Texas area. The insulation is not real good. I saw some tiny ceramic powdery type stuff at paint stores that you put in paint, and spray interior or exterior, and I was wandering if someone has had any experience with this stuff. Or any other suggestions. The light bill gets pretty high in the summer.

Thanks Rick

Spray-in radiant barrier is very tough to make work with the effective numbers it talks about in brochures.

Spray-on product must have a smooth surface and must be applied up to two coats to even approach a 70% effective rating.

Most roof decking (bottom side in attic space) is "not" smooth.

I can put you in contact with a manufacturer's rep , based in Houston who can provide you with some additional information.

I can also put you in contact with a few inspectors in the Houston market who can also share data with you.
