Insulation Manufacterer

I am finishing my basement and used 2x3 studs 1" off the foundation. The problem is if I use R-13 fiberglass insulation that is 3.5 inches thick it will touch the foundation. Is their fiberglass insulation that is less than 3.5 inches thick.

Thanks for your help!!

You could order the thickness you want but it would be considerably more expensive than the R-13. In your case I would buy the R-13 and peel off the fiberglass from the back to get the desired thickness. If you are anything like me, you'll find uses for the excess insulation. You'll find it's great for filling in gaps in insulation in the attic around plumbing pipes and the like.
