I am in the process of finishing my basement. I had to take out a bunch of brand new Kraft faced insulation from my walls because we decided to use spray foam on the walls instead. Now I have a bunch of new Kraft faced insulation and I was wondering if I could put that in the ceiling to deaden sound a bit? Originally I had planned on not putting anything up there but since I have it I was wondering if I could do that.

Since both areas will be heated and cooled what direction will I face the paper side?

Do I need to worry about fire issues with the paper?

Should I rip the paper off?

Should I just scrap the whole plan?

Take the paper off and install it. You can use drop ceiling wire (rod) cut in lengths about 2' longer than joist space and wedge it in between the joists under the faceless insulation to hold it up.
