-- Long fibers prevent good flow in closed spaces; difficult to fill all parts of a wall.
-- Skin irritant: wear long sleeve shirts and cotton masks.
-- Requires professional blowing equipment and experience to obtain proper densities.
-- Can settle.
-- Low R value per inch, so it takes a lot of space.
-- Attic air currents can penetrate its loosely packed upper surface reducing R values.
-- Light weight.
-- Ensure that it does not plug eave vents at the time of installation and that it does not blow over the vents later with normal attic air currents.
