Ceiling insulation provides essential sound control between floors in your home. Properly insulating the ceilings will make your home a more peaceful and quiet place because it will ensure that footsteps and other sounds do not migrate to other rooms.
When ceiling insulation is installed at the same time as wall insulation, which is usually the case in new construction, it is installed up from underneath, before drywall is put in.
Follow the installation tips below to ensure that you do a professional job. It's a good idea to wear a work helmet when you're installing ceiling insulation. This can help you avoid injuring yourself on exposed framing members such as ceiling joists, exposed nails and other hazards. Refer to our complete list of Safety Tips for more important ways to protect yourself while installing insulation.
Make sure you are using insulation with the most appropriate R-value. Our R-value Estimator in the Site Toolbox can guide you. Click on the product links below to learn more about the JM insulation products you can use in ceilings.
