Choosing the right insulation when finishing basements is integral to preventing mold in the long run. InSoFast insulation panels offer the resistance and mitigation to moisture that’s otherwise exclusive to expensive insulation options that require professional installation.
InSoFast insulation panels are the affordable and Do-it-Yourself friendly solution to the problem of mold and mildew in lower levels.
The panels we produce connect to one another via interlocking edges and are made from closed-cell and non-porous EPS foam. Once connected into a system of continuous insulation, the panels protect from thermal energy loss and work for all flat surfaces. The panels will readily apply to the basement’s floor, walls, and ceilings.
Each panel has tongue-and-groove alignment notches so that the application doesn’t rely on tape. Instead, you’ll need a few tools to adjust the panel shape and size and to fix the panels onto the surface. The necessary implements of the job include a saw of some kind, a caulk gun, construction adhesive, a utility knife, and canned expanding foam.
Every 16” on center within the panels lies a polypropylene stud. These studs are the equivalent in strength to a 20-gauge steel stud and able to support up to 250 pounds each. Their presence provides a rot-resistant frame, the ability to avoid thermal bridging, and protection from permeation by vapor and moisture.
The service channels featured within InSoFast insulation panels are another surprising benefit of choosing them. They run in both directions, horizontally and vertically, to welcome wiring of all sorts, and the EPS foam can be modified with a utility knife to fit the outlet box.
It’s important to note that when installed into basements, homeowners should verify the need for a waterproofing solution before installing InSoFast insulation panels.
