    LESLIE: Dennis in Virginia, listening on WFHG, what can we do for you and your house today?

    DENNIS: I am about to turn a deck into a sun room. And I thought at one time I’d heard, on your show, that like the insulation that I would put in the floor, that the paper should be up and not down.

    TOM: Correct.

    LESLIE: Well, the paper should face the heated area.

    TOM: Right.

    DENNIS: Right. OK. Because I’m – and in that show, you had said that most people put it the other way so they can staple it on the little …

    TOM: Right.

    DENNIS: … edge and stuff.

    TOM: Yes, correct.

    TOM: Yeah.

    DENNIS: And that’s why I just wanted to make sure.

    TOM: No, you’re absolutely correct.
