HOW TO MEET TITLE 24 OPTION B ATTIC REQUIREMENTS WITH CERTAINTEED

 

Option B attics require a minimum R-value of insulation installed between the roof rafters in contact with the roof deck and an additional layer of ceiling insulation located between the attic and the conditioned space when meeting Section 150.1(c)9A

 

 

To ensure better energy efficiency, moisture management and durability, CertainTeed offers a solution using R13 SMARTBATT Fiber glass batts with MoistureSense™ Technology placed as a continuous layer below the rafters, and installing R30-38 Sustainable Insulation® batts or InsulSafe® SP Blown-in on the attic floor.
