  1. Have you recently completed a home insulation project or planning one? What type of insulation fits the bill for you and why?

  2. Great video Matt. Beaucoup d’informations très intéressantes. I think using it for my garage up north in Québec. Somme installers using a product made with soy beans. It seems to be safer.
