It's really easy to work with too. It cuts with an old bread knife and holds itself between studs.
I used it in my garage and basement ceiling. If my walls weren't already done, I definitely would have used it there too.
I'm sure Roxul isn't the only brand out there. But it's the brand I know.
I just checked it out, I think that would end up being VERY expensive hehe. I'll keep that in mind though for sure.
Also CarsAndGames, I live near Aurora, so not far from you. =)
