This homeowner in Salem, CT called us out to their home to insulate their basement due to having cold floors. This homeowner had no insulation in their basement at all. Poured concrete basement walls are a risk for potential mold in the summer when the hot humid air meets the cold concrete! This was negatively affecting their home creating cold floors, hard to heat, and higher heating and cooling bills to name a few.
We addressed this concern by insulating and air sealing the basement rim joist and walls. We first install our Foamax foam insulation boards along all the walls in the basement. They are secured with long fasteners. It has flame retardant properties. This results in warmer more comfortable, and helps with cold floors. Next, we spray our Spray Foam Insulation along the perimeter of the house covering the rim joist cavities and the sill plate. This stops all air leaks from outside entering the home through all cracks and gaps.
