When installed correctly, basement insulation can transform your damp, cold basement into a drier, more-comfortable living space. Not only that, but correct installation can also eliminate mold and humidity problems, and lower your heating and cooling costs.
You may already have fiberglass batts installed between your basement ceiling joists, but basement ceiling insulation only insulates the upstairs space; it does nothing to make your basement more comfortable. If you’d like to transform an underused basement, insulation upgrades are a great start.

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 and insulating the rim joist.
Insulate foundation walls: : Rigid foam insulation is best for your basement’s concrete walls. Unlike fiberglass batts, rigid foam wall insulation won’t absorb water or receive damage. Rigid foam also won't compress, fall out of place, or lose R-value. We recommend Basement to Beautiful® wall insulation. These innovative panels are sized for typical basement walls and each panel comes with built-in wiring channels and integral steel flanges for attaching wallboard.
Insulate the basement floor: Do you want a warm finished floor in your basement? We fix cold basement floors with the revolutionary ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™. Unlike wood subflooring, our ThermalDry® decking can’t be damaged by moisture and will never attract mold or rot. It’s the perfect substrate for a warm, long-lasting basement floor.
