Insulation Question

fwfrog had written this in response to : I'm not sure what brand company #1 was using for material. Would the R-value/inch total still match the JM datasheet (even if they aren't using JM)?
Also, I'm not sure if it matters, but company #1 gave us quotes that were already discounted from a state government subsidy. (Although his R-49 quote wasn't offered freely. We only obtained this figure after a couple of calls to the company. It seems high to me.)
Company #2 doesn't participate in the government subsidy program, but they were referred to us by a friend of the family. We were told that company #2 might give us a rate that they give to new home builders (which, I assume, is less than they charge for an individual, off-the-street).
FYI... here's the website for company #2 We plan to call and inquire about the inch total next week.
I suppose company #1 is worth avoiding, if their math was so far off. I'm sad this was a company recommended by the state's subsidy program!
