Talking about insulation... kckyle I have some info for you!

AirKrete Insulation - THE BEST

You live in the NY area right? Well I'm from Canada and my family owns a building center and hardware store for 30 years. I've done construction etc and am constantly looking at new building technologies like steel framing etc. One of the greatest products I've seen in terms of insulation is that air krete stuff. It's not approved for residential in Canada but only commercial. Where you are though you could install this stuff. Between the sound deadening and thermal properties there is no better insulation. Don't confuse it with other toxic foam based Polyurethane solutions like Icynene that require a HASMAT and respirator to install. That stuff is BRUTALLY toxic even though they claim otherwise IMHO. That AirKrete stuff is foamed cement! Total inert... The reason it isn't HUGE is because the patent holder is a rather eccentric retired "up-state" guy that's hard to negotiate with on rights etc. In your area though there are installers familiar with the product and have extensive experience installing it.

It's really the way to go...
