REVIEW: Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation

Today I want to do a product review of the Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation. I will discuss the Quality, Value and Installation of Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation. You can find Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation at HOME DEPOT.

I have installed this brand of insulation in my own home about eight years ago. I have also installed other brands of insulation and I plan to give the facts of Owens Corning AttiCat PINK and compare it to the other brands that I have installed.

  1. Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation Quality

R Value –                                 R13 to R60

Insulation Locations –            Attics

Insulation Features –             Soundproofing, Formaldehyde Free

Overview –      Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation is a great product for attics. As you can see above this product can only be used in attic spaces as loose fill. This product is very limited compared to Cellulose Insulation. It has a good R Value at R 2.9 per inch as loose fill which is slightly lower than Cellulose Insulation.

This product is a low dust insulation. It is far less messy than Cellulose.



  1. Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation Value

Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation Cost more per bag but its expanding feature allows you to cover more space per bag then Cellulose. You can Read my Review on GreenFiber Cellulose Insulation by clicking the link. Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation claims that their product does not settle. I put it in my attic about eight years ago and I have noticed an extremely little amount of settling (barely any at all, close to nothing).

Insulating your home will pay for the investment and more over time. Make sure you don’t plan to move for a couple years after you insulate to be able to get your money back. You will save money on your heating and cooling costs all year long.

  1. Installation

Skill Level –     Beginner

Time –             4 Hours (Depending on Size of Project)

Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation is very easy to install. The machine is easy to load, and the hose has a control on the end to stop the machine when needed. When working with the Cellulose Blower Machine you must yell back to your friend loading the machine or use a walkie talkie.

All loose fill “Blow-in” types of insulation are very similar to install and are for the most part quite simple. In attic locations make sure you are careful if you do not have floors installed, you don’t want to end up falling through the ceiling.

You will need to wear protective gear like, Dust Masks, Goggles, and Gloves. I also like to wear long sleeves even in the summer.

You can buy Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation at your local Home Depot, you can also order online (by clicking one of the links here) and pick up in store (where available). They will get it ready for you, when you show up you will go to the pick-up desk and it will be waiting for you. You don’t have to waste any time looking through the store.

I hope you have found this information helpful. Leave me a comment and let me know if you have used Owens Corning AttiCat PINK Expanding Fiberglass Insulation and what you think of it. My home is warmer already!
