Where has the foil faced fiber glass insulation gone?
All that seems to be stocked these days is kraft paper faced stuff.
I like the foil faced material as it affords slightly better moisture resistance and the aluminum foil also acts as an infrared radiation reflector.
Owens Corning makes it -- but not for residential applications
Johns Manville has it but same as O-C commercial.
So what's the story-- code change I'm not aware of?
Out of style? Too expensive for the box stores and small jobbers?
