Buying the product was easy and delivery was speedy. The overall issue is the installation. Once the product is installed you can no longer see any issues that may arise. It would be months before you ever noticed a leak or a broken truss in my case. My whole roof would have ended up collapsing had I not found the damaged area. I would highly recommend the spray in radiant barrier to the foil any day of the week. I took all of my attic foil down and sprayed it in. I can now see anything situation that may arise in my attic. For the price of the attic foil compared to spray in...........Just spray it in and be done.

Response from AtticFoil.com:

Thanks for your feedback.  However, we maintain that if the foil is stapled up you WILL see a leak within 4 ft.  The water will run down to the seam and either stain the ceiling or you will see water stains on the bottom edge of the foil.  Plus, correctly installed roofs don't leak.  Period. I think this is your root problem... not the AtticFoil.  
Just FYI, the spray on reflective coating (when installed perfectly) was tested in a full scale Department Of Energy study & it was shown to only be about 40% as effective at reducing heat as compared to AtticFoil type products that are stapled on.  Complete test results are here: http://www.atticfoil.com/index.php/technical-info/dept-of-energy-study-results/

Fantastic product. I installed it in my house and my 5,000 sq ft building. Unbelievable how well it works. Super easy to install. 82 f outside full sun, 82 f in my warehouse (used to be 95-99). Thanks!!!!!

Everything worked perfectly. I used the 26" wide roll and cut each section about a foot too long just to be safe and then cut off the excess after stapling each section. I started installing at the top and working my way down, but found that starting on my back at the bottom made for a cleaner install and was easier to cut off any excess material while staning in the middle. I completed the installation over several weeks, working a few hours here and there. (Please note, I only worked in the attic when it was cold or cool outside. This was my winter project. I would not recommend installing this during any hot day.) I used some 2x1 boards to frame out a false ceiling about a foot below the peak. This created a triangle shaped space where all the hot air can make its way to the vents. Getting around the attic with all the ac ducts and wiring was the biggest challenge. I had dozens of boards that I was always moving around to stand or lie on. Two big 2x12 boards were the best, but the 2x4 boards were easier to get into the tight spots. There is a notable difference in the attic temps now.

Definitely recommend AtticFoil....I used AtticFoil as an under-roof tile radiant barrier over felt paper underlayment during re-roofing. AtticFoil's Ed Fritz gave good information and advice on install and technical issues. It turned out as expected.
The product is tough and effective, especially under barrel tile that gives good airspace above the radiant barrier. I used an engineer specializing in insulation science to evaluate the effectiveness of AtticFoil under 4000 sq. ft. of tile. My home is in Tucson,AZ, where that March day-time temp was officially 81 degrees.

At this peak, the attic temp was kept at 79-81 degrees, indicating AtticFoil was keeping the radiant heat penetration at minimal levels.

The attic temperature was the same as the outside ambient temperature. The roof decking temp was 81-84 degrees, indicating that the foil was radiating heat away from the underlayment and decking ( laser checking the roof tile temperature was 117degrees, a tile/roof deck difference of 117-81=36 degrees!)

My engineer confirms there will be significant cooling savings. I expect a 7-10 year ROI on cooling costs, not including comfort and longer underlayment and HVAC life....great results for a low price.

After attending another company's dinner sales meeting, I realized the need for this material. My online research discovered AtticFoil and I purchased their product. I have been very satisfied. The weather warmed up so I can't say the installation has been helpful but I expect to see a difference next winter.
