SMB Extra Insulation - worth it or not?

Hey all...

Was trying to find a thread on insulation that would address whether or not the SMB installed extra insulation is worth the extra $500 in a new build.

Anyone have an opinion on that or maybe point me to an existing thread?

Thanks!

Steve

What do they tell you is standard and what will they do extra for 500?

Yes, the above question is very important. In a standard SMB build you pretty much get NO insulation. I just pulled the interior including walls out of my 95 for a remodel and was blown away to find basically none. They used some 1/2 soft foam on the bottom half of the walls and for carpet padding, that was it. Plywood on the floor with no insulation. I will post pics soon.
Perhaps things have changed since 95. I sure hope they do more nowadays.

Al and Scotty...not sure, but I know there is SOME insulation now, including walls and floor. Can't recall what the "extra" is... crappy memory... so I can't decide on whether or not to spend more. If it is just a layer of reflectix, I will pass because I doubt (given discussions I found here) that reflectix would be worth $500 when I am concerned more with cold weather insulation.
