Benefits of Foundation Insulation:
Insulating your foundation is another key part of an overall strategy to turn your home into an energy efficient home.
You should start by signing up for a Home Performance Test. This will allow us to use an infrared camera to locate where you need insulation the most.
We can usually improve on both the interior and exterior of your foundation. It will save you energy and also make your basement more comfortable.
On the interior of your unfinished concrete/block walls, we recommend the installation of a Thermax foil faced insulation.
It’s the only product that has been fire tested, allowing you to leave it unfinished.
Any other choices of foam board like Johns Manville or Pink board work equally as good, but you must install a fire proof finish such as drywall over them after installation.
We install 1 inch rigid foam around the exterior perimeter of your home to a minimum of 10 inches below grade.
After installation you will instantly notice a much more comfortable basement because the warm to cold transfer can no longer take place.
We offer a crushed rock or stucco finish as our standard option and can install custom colors to match almost any color scheme.
