Basement and Rim Joist Insulation Solutions in South of Boston, Cape Cod, and RI

Spray foam insulation creates comfort & energy efficiency in your basement

Watch this video about sealing & insulating a stone foundation wall with spray foam to enhance the basement environment.

When installed correctly, basement insulation can transform your damp, cold basement into a drier, more-comfortable living space, as well as eliminate mold and humidity problems in the basement, and lower your heating & cooling costs.

You may already have fiberglass batts installed between your basement ceiling joists. But basement ceiling insulation only insulates the upstairs space; it does nothing to make your basement more comfortable. If you’d like to transform an underused basement, insulation upgrades are a great starting point. DryZone Basement Systems uses spray foam insulation around rim joists to transform the efficiency of your basement.

Three ways to make your basement better with insulation

Basement Insulation Rim Joists in Quincy

Rim joist insulation & sealing. We make sure to seal & insulate the outer edge of the house framing to help stop air leaks, pests and major heat loss.   

  1. Seal & insulate the rim joist: The edge of the house where the floor framing rests on the foundation is a major source of air leakage and energy loss. It’s especially severe where plumbing, wiring and dryer vents penetrate to the exterior. We eliminate this problem by sealing & insulating the rim joist with spray foam insulation.
  2. Insulate foundation walls: Rigid foam insulation is best for your basement’s concrete walls. Unlike fiberglass batts, rigid foam wall insulation won’t absorb water or be damaged by it. Rigid foam also won't compress, fall out of place or lose R-value. We recommend Basement to Beautiful® wall insulation. These innovative panels are sized for typical basement walls and each panel comes with built-in wiring channels and integral steel flanges for attaching wallboard.
  3. Insulate the basement floor: Do you want a warm finished floor in your basement? We fix cold basement floors with the revolutionary ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™. Unlike wood subflooring, our ThermalDry® decking can’t be damaged by moisture and will never attract mold or rot. It’s the perfect substrate for a warm, long-lasting basement floor. 

Why choose spray foam insulation for rim joists?

Spray foam rim joists in Boston

Using spray foam insulation for rim joists is the superior option.

While fiberglass insulation wastes energy in your home, spray foam insulation expands against your basement's rim joist, sealing off small holes that fiberglass insulation may not close. Spray foam is also mold-resistant and prevents water and condensation from pooling up, whereas other insulation types may permit mold growth and moisture problems.

By keeping the warm air inside during the winter and the hot air outside during the summer, spray foam insulation can make for a more comfortable home, while saving energy from overusing heating and cooling systems.

By using spray foam insulation instead of fiberglass insulation, you'll leave the sagging, pink, fluffy mess behind, because spray foam insulation is permanent and will not sag. This kind of durability can also prevent rodents, and bugs from entering the home.
