You’re probably thinking that insulating a basement wall in under 10 minutes is impossible, right? Well, think again. With a good game plan, it can be done!
InSoFast closed-cell, injection-molded EPS foam panels are amazingly simple to install and are popular with homeowners for DIY basement and interior renovations.
If you’re installing our panels for the first time, it may take the better part of a weekend, but getting organized ahead of time can help you get the job done quickly.
Watch Ed and Dean from InSoFast in this video to see how easy the installation was after they prepped the walls, organized their supplies and used a dry stacking method to pre-determine the layout and cuts before adhering the panels to the walls.
Basements are notorious for water intrusion, cold temperatures, humidity and mold problems. But, every year, thousands of them are finished with insulation products that intensify the mold, mildew and moisture problems and make the space unusable.
The best alternative to insulating with fiberglass (which works like a sponge and is a recipe for mold, rot and poor indoor air quality) or spray foam (which is messy and expensive) is the UX 2.0 Panel from InSoFast.
The UX 2.0 panel is 2-inches thick and comes in 2’ x 4’ interlocking panels. A flat surface exposes the face of the embedded studs that are molded in the panel every 16 inches on center.
With a continuous R-value of 8.5, rot-resistant framing, drainage channels, electrical raceways, and a simple, stackable interlocking design, this panel is exceptionally affordable for base-level code requirements. Once installed, you’ll have a solid surface that can support drywall and paneling as well as cabinets and TVs.
If you need a solution that goes beyond base-level, our EXi 2.5 Panel is 2 ½-inches thick and has a continuous R-value of 10 that outperforms traditionally framed R-15 batt walls. Tighter interlocks and recessed studs keep the EXi barrier truer and straighter, enabling it to bridge over cups, bows and other irregularities in concrete basement walls.
Electric is easy with the InSoFast panels because they contain built-in, code-depth raceways. You can run wiring after the panel installation or install the panels over pre-existing conduit.
InSoFast insulation panels are the perfect way to insulate your cold, damp basement, and most installations can be completed with a utility knife, glue and a caulk gun. Call us today to get started!
