I AM curious to see how all this turns out. He may be on to something that the industry might want to take a look at. It certainly isn't going to attract the WEIGHT POLICE.

Would that be any different than the insulation (batten or block) plus reflectix when it is used during construction at the factory?

I accessed the vent covers from the roof. Used the same two sided tape, cut a 3.5 inch hole in the middle for the motor and an 8 inch cut 2 inches in for hinge. I do not plan on taking it down the highway open.
Reflectix can be used to increase the R factor of existing insulation or a wall itself, as long as there is a gap between it and the wall or insulation.
Its other use is obviously to reflect. I think we are getting both in our application to the skylight. We allosed for a 1 to 2 inch gap. The Reflectix is hot to the touch, but heat no longer radiates into the bathroom. Probaby relecting UV while at the same time providing insulation.

How difficult is it to remove the paneling inside the closet? Wondering about doing that, then putting in insulation and reinstalling the paneling.
