The website of full of useful information, the product did exactly what they claimed. I am very pleased with the entire experience. I electric bill dropped about $100 right away and my garage, non-conditioned controlled, is much cooler.

After much research, whereby I decided upon contacting Attic Foil personally, via telephone, all of my questions about the product were not only answered to my complete satisfaction, but I was very impressed by the very personal attention given by their personnel.
They promptly sent me product sample, of which I was even more impressed and immediately proceeded to order a large enough quantity to cover my entire large attic space. After watching the video, I was convinced this was a project, which could be done by almost anyone with staple gun skill.
Being almost 70 year old female, it was necessary to hire a couple of guys (one on each end) to climb into attic in order to hold, cut & staple the large running sections in this unfinished attic & crawl space over almost 5000 sq ft living & garage. Which was easily installed. Believe it took them 2 days from start to finish. However, because I bought a roll of the other type (without breathing holes) to use on an exterior wall of enclosed porch, being re-sided, I believe those guys may have used that wrong type over utility room section in the attic by mistake, since that utility room seems much hotter than necessary. I simply haven't been able to crawl into that section to see for myself or change it, if what I suspect is true.
The difference in the temp of attic is absolutely amazing. Living in hottest southernmost Texas, it was absolutely impossible to venture into attic for any purpose most of the year, or until exterior temps dropped into the 60s. Five minutes would be max in that attic, previous to Attic Foil. Since installing Attic Foil, I've been able to work up there, sorting stored items myself for a couple hours or longer each time. And, handyhelpers have been able to wrap air conditioning ducts with ease during morning hours or when it's s bit cooler or during morning hours. Couple days ago, it was about 89 degrees outside in early afternoon (have no idea attic temp) & I was able to stay up there for well over an hour, locating, selecting & getting stored items down, without breaking much of a sweat.
I recommend Attic Foil to anyone who can benefit from radiant barrier (in my personal opinion that's everyone), the house stays so much cooler, electric air conditioner cost has dropped considerably. And, the attic fans in gables no longer run most of the afternoon & evenings. They rarely turn on to blow the hot air out, only on the hottest days of all. Unfortunately, it's impossible to break down the percentage of electric savings attributided to Attic Foil, since new windows were also installed at the same time. But, I can attest to the amount of heat buildup in the attic, and it's minimum compared to the super blast-furnace, intensive, unbearable heat prior to Attic Foil.
There was enough product left over to install some into the lower roofed attic crawl space at my mother's home. Was only able to do 1/2 of the rafter area in that attic, so need to reorder additional roll of Attic Foil in order to complete it. My adult son was able to install it by himself, without assistance.
This stuff is remarkable and I'm very impressed with the product, will suggest it's use in any area application that one deems suitable. I'm also considering installing some on the exterior, under tin on southern exposure patio area, because I believe it will prevent the high heat build up on the patio during hottest summer, when it feels too stifling to sit & enjoy patio, much less using grill. I shall provide an update after this project is complete to report on benefits of exterior radiant barrier.
I have been extremely pleased with my online search results, their website information & installation video, as well as their helpful office staff, quick shipping and even more pleased with my decision to install this product at my home. Highly recommend it!!!

Good performance. Used it on my detached pole barn style metal sided garage, placed 1.5" behind the outside metal panels. Went on the back side of the 2x4 wall purlins. Greatly reduced the summer heat level inside my garage. If you give it the proper air gap, it does reflect as advertised.
