Why Install Basement Insulation?
As one of the main insulators of your home, the basement is often overlooked during the insulation process. The basement acts to keep the home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
Adding basement insulation increases the insulating properties of the basement, provides a large cost savings to the homeowner, and improves the energy efficiency of the home.

Rim Joist Insulation
It is typical for rim joists to be overlooked or forgotten due to their nature of being hard to see and reach. However, in most cases, this an area of basements that often play a major part in the energy efficiency of basements. Because this the location where parts of the floor above, walls, and floor joists all come together, it is common that there are cracks or open space where air can leak out or water can leak in. This problem can be avoided by adding the proper foam insulation to seal all cracks around the rim joists of your basement.
