Basement Wall Insulation

We can fullfill every insulation project you can imagine!

Installing fiberglass batts is very common, and it's tough to do anything else while you're doing that. The real work of finishing a ceiling needs to happen before the batts go up and trapping the dust and making it hard to paint or clean up.

Energy efficiency is improved by insulating walls. The bottom half of the house becomes part of the building's envelope.

The use of fiberglass is not recommended on basement walls.

Rigid Foams advantage on basement walls

Do not use fiberglass insulation in the basement, it is unstable and does not last long. Wrap your basement with rigid foam boards for insulation - they'll never fall off place, they're water-resistant, and won't compress over time.

This is the general way of making walls within foundation walls. The stud bays created by the studs are then filled with fiberglass batts, which provide superior energy efficiency and comfort

Insulation such as fiberglass batts should not be placed in the basement since they need to stay dry otherwise they will get ruined. Moisture will soak into the insulation and lead to wood rot and mold growth.

Rigid Foam - The Best Choice

Insulating the basement is a very important step. Rigid foam insulation will inhibit mold from growing and will prevent moisture from being absorbed into the walls.

You won't have to deal with any condensation or R-loss because there will be no cold air infiltration. This will save your building energy, which will, in turn, provide you with more comfort and savings.

The boards are secured and attached directly against the foundation walls in the basement. The seams can be covered with other fire-proof materials such as gypsum boards when required by local codes.
