I have a basement with wood stud walls 2x10. Is there insulation for that thickness to achieve a higher R value.

Hello xxlt, and welcome to the Community!


You have very thick walls, normally basement walls are 2x4, but you have 2x10, so I would suggest using Owens Corning R-30 Kraft Faced Insulation Batts 16 in. x 48 in.--each batt is  9-1/2 in. x 16 in. x 48 in., 11 pieces ( 58.67 sq. ft. / bag), so depending how tall your walls are, you may have to use multiple batts per opening between studs.  Also, each batt is kraft (paper faced), so when you install you will put the paper side to the inside or warm side of the wall.
