Are you in the midst of planning for remodeling your basement? Here’s some insulation tips for your benefit. The primary suggestion is to choose InSoFast insulation panels.
Shipped directly from our factories in Idaho, Minnesota, and Massachusetts, InSoFast insulation panels are American Made, patented and patent-pending, engineered panels that outperform higher R-value fiberglass insulation and facilitate easier installation. Even though these products were directed toward commercial use at first, they’re so easily installed that they migrated into the Do-It-Yourself market quite naturally.
InSoFast insulation panels are ideal for basement finishing projects. The panels create systems of continuous insulation by connecting the 2’x4’ panels in a running bond pattern. Attaching the panels is straightforward with tongue-and-groove notched alignment edges along the sides of the panels.
The panels themselves are made from closed-cell, non-porous, injection-molded EPS foam. With the EPS insulating foam and the built-in studs, the continuous insulation systems have no thermal bridges and outperform other insulation options.
Consider Waterproofing – Basement spaces will possibly need waterproofing products. Concrete is highly absorbent, and depending on the water table and grade of your property, your finishing project could be ruined if you forgo appropriate insulation.
Skip the Wood Frame – InSoFast insulation panels allow homeowners to skip the bulkiness and eventual destruction of a wooden frame. The panels’ built-in studs provide strength to support drywall and mounted hardware. They have the strength of a 20-gauge steel stud and can hold up to 250 pounds each. With the frame built into the panels, the insulation is continuous with no gaps in thermal protection.
Add Services – InSoFast insulation panels feature raceways that run both horizontally and vertically. The foam of the panel can be modified with a utility knife for the installation of an outlet box or two. Whether you plan to use the basement as a game room, bedroom, or other functional space, adding the necessary services will be easier to install with our insulation panel’s features.
