Basement Insulation

A simple solution to reduce condensation and improve comfort in the basement

Insulating your basement walls and floor can help make your basement comfortable and reduce your home heating and cooling costs. Installing the right type of basement insulation the right way can offer several benefits.

  • Eliminates damp basement walls and floors
  • Reduces drafts and air leaks for greater comfort year round
  • Reduces the risk of frozen pipes in cold temperatures
  • Provides moisture control and reduces the risk of mold growth

Basement wall and floor insulation designed for basements

Basement Systems offers exclusive rigid foam insulation products designed specifically for the basement. Rigid foam doesn't absorb water, making it one of the best basement insulation methods for long-lasting performance.

Whether you're looking to insulate your basement walls, floor or both, we have the solution for your home.

Foamax® Wall Insulation

Foamax rigid foam insulated basement walls

Basement walls insulated with Foamax® panels.

Foamax® is a polyisocyanurate rigid board insulation for interior basement walls. Foamax includes an innovative core surrounded by a tough exterior facing for a warmer, drier, brighter basement.

  • One of the highest R-values available
  • Reduces the potential for condensation buildup within the wall assembly
  • Can be left exposed without a thermal barrier
  • Approved for fire exposure

If you're considering finishing or remodeling your basement, we also recommend our Basement to Beautiful® panels. The panels include a SilverGlo® foam insulation core, built-in wiring channels and steel nailing flanges that make it easy to install finished wallboard.

ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking

Basement floor insulated with ThermalDry decking panels

ThermalDry® foam insulation panels provide a waterproof, mold-proof subfloor ready for finishing.

ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™ combines SilverGlo® graphite-infused expanded polystyrene foam (EPS) with magnesium oxide board for a dry, warm subfloor for carpeting or other finished flooring. The ThermalDry insulated floor decking makes it possible to have warm floors in your basement without the worry of mold or moisture damage.

  • No organic materials for mold to grow on
  • 24% higher insulation value per inch than standard EPS foam
  • Warms surface of floor above dew point, eliminating condensation
  • Grooves on bottom of panel allow water from leaks to dry

Why fiberglass insulation shouldn't be used in the basement

Many basements are insulated with fiberglass batts that are installed between the ceiling joists. The problem with this method is that it only insulates the upper part of the home and does nothing to improve your basement.

Fiberglass batts shouldn't be used to insulate finished basement walls because they can absorb moisture and attract mold. When damp, fiberglass insulation compresses and falls out of place, doing more harm than good. Rigid foam insulation doesn't have any of these issues and it can effectively stop drafts and air leaks. By insulating your basement with our foam insulation products, you're making an investment that pays for itself.
