Insulating A Basement

Insulating a home’s basement creates a stronger building envelope, contributing to reduced heating and cooling bills. In fact, an uninsulated basement can account for as much as 25 percent of a home's total heat loss and can lead to moisture problems and mold.

Consider using JM Formaldehyde-free™ Fiberglass Insulation in interior basement walls for thermal and sound control. For basement exterior walls, use Fiberglass Insulation or Continuous Insulation like AP™ Foil-Faced Polyiso Foam Sheathing depending on your project needs.

Remember to wear proper protective gear, including long sleeves, gloves and safety glasses when installing basement insulation. Be careful around exposed nails and exposed framing such as ceiling and floor joists.
