Knauf Insulation Reviews
Most customers find Knauf insulation to be on the cutting edge of insulation technology, especially their products that are made with ECOSE technology. Common reviews talk about the ease of installation and softness in comparison with other brands. The majority of all customer reviews are incredibly positive. However, it should be advised that proper protective gear should be worn during installation. While people find Knauf insulation to be softer than their competitors, it can still be itchy or irritating to work with, which is one of the few complaints customers have. It is important to do your research before making any final decisions on your Knauf insulation; be sure that you have chosen the correct style and material and to read customer reviews of the product you are thinking of going with.
