generic aluminium foil as radiant barrier

scott_homeMay 18, 2010


Has anyone used the aluminium foil from grocery store as radiant barrier? Any Pros and Cons? I know it only costs less than $50 to go with generic aluminium foil for 2000 sf. It costs about $150 to go with the construction type.

I would also suggest checking prices of "food service foil" available at Sam's Club and restaurant supply stores. Less expensive, large rolls, available in heavy-duty foil. Beats the heck out of the price of grocery store boxes of foil.

Be sure to let us know if you give this a try, cost, and savings....
