Batts for Cash? You Bet.


insulationIf you’re working on a remodeling project this month, that old batt insulation you’re about to send to the landfill may be worth cold, hard cash: as in $250 per sample, per house.

The Home Innovation Research Labs is seeking samples of exterior batt-type materials for a life expectancy study. There’s no catch, but you do need to make sure that any samples you provide be at least 30 years old and have both the manufacturer’s markings and the R-value clearly visible.

Get the details here. And get cracking (or whacking): Samples are due by July 31.
