Two ways to make your basement better with insulation. Rim joist insulation & sealing. We make sure to seal & insulate the outer edge of the house framing to help stop air leaks, pests and major heat loss.
- Seal & insulate the rim joist: The edge of the house where the floor framing rests on the foundation is a major source of air leakage and energy loss. It’s especially severe where plumbing, wiring and dryer vents penetrate to the exterior. We eliminate this problem by sealing & insulating the rim joist.
- Insulate foundation walls: Depending on the wall structure - i.e. masonry block walls and or poured concrete, we provide options as to the best way to insulate your basement walls. For instance, if you have a masonry block wall, we will install masonry injection foam which offers many benefits plus you will not have to stud out the wall for batt and/or closed cell polyurethane insulation. Another option would be the installation of rigid foam insulation. Unlike fiberglass batts, rigid foam wall insulation won’t absorb water or be damaged by it. Rigid foam also won't compress, fall out of place or lose R-value.
