Radiant barrier material at Home Depot on clearance

Just wanted to give a heads up to those who were looking to sandwich radiant barrier sheets in their roof, door or other cavities to retain heat in winter or reflect it in summer.
Home Depot has their Enerflex foil in sheets or rolls on 75% clearance. This is in store only and store clearance pricing will vary. Hopefully this is nationwide. My store had it for $12.xx for 10 sheets that are 2' x 4'. They also had a 4' x 12' roll for $5.xx. The original prices were ridiculous but I think this is a good price at 75% off.

Here's a link to the film at HD: (Online price does not reflect in-store price)
Enerflex 24 in. x 4 ft. Radiant Barriers (10-Pack)-115361 at The Home Depot

Here's a link to the manufacturer for more info and videos:
Enerflex® Radiant Barrier: Decrease Utility Bills by Reducing Heat Transfer and Heat Loss


Enerflex is a metalized film that has a class A/1 fire rating. It is a two sided film with a stiff plastic mesh in between(1.5" squares x 1/16" thick mesh). I wish it had more of an air gap between the foils. I cut thru one of the squares and there is some glue holding the two sides together. There is a small air gap where the thickness of the plastic mesh is but not much.

I am in no way affiliated with Enerflex or HD. I just wanted to give a heads up to those who might be looking for something cheap like this.

One other heads up to go with this product is some butyl sound dampener/flashing material. If you have a Habitat for Humanity Restore nearby you might want to call and ask if they have any Dow Corning Weathermate flashing available. My store in Lawrenceville, GA had tons of it and sometimes products are given to Restore on a nationwide basis from manufacturers. So hopefully this just wasn't my store. This is 9" by 100' and has an HDPE (high density polyethylene) blue facing with butyl rubber adhesive. It is not asphaltic or bituminous. It is $3 per roll at my store. Anyway the local Atlanta guys might benefit from this at worst case.
WEATHERMATE? Straight Flashing

Have a good one!
