    Guess again. It takes longer to build, still needs insulated in unconditioned spaces, has to rest on supports as compared to screwed with a strap (taking more time), cannot be transported as easily by the sheet, and takes longer to make the connections. Sheet metal is easier and costs me less yet I still use ductboard for the benefits.

    But if you have noise, its not just because its metal, its designed/sized wrong.
