Hal Skinner replied to Richard Beyer's discussion What's your opinion on the best insulation option for your GREEN attic space?

RCC as interior paint in a house that does have R-rated insulation.

Here is a few pictures, a statement and a copy of the electric bill from a homeowner.  He had the interior walls and ceiling painted with the RCC. My first post of the RCC used as interior paint on a church sanctuary raised a few questions I could not answer as the contractor had passed away.  This is a brick house in the same town as that church.  It DOES have R-rated insulation in the walls (the church did not) and ceiling although the owner was unsure of the exact rating of the…See More
