Basement Insulation Rim Joists in Latham

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.

To solve this problem, Dr. Energy Saver will seal and insulate the rim joist.

Here a combination of rigid foam and spray foam insulation is used, with special care taken to seal around a plumbing pipe that penetrates the rim joist.

Many houses have basement and crawl space foundations, but very few houses have foundation insulation. Instead of insulating foundation walls, most builders elect to install fiberglass batt insulation between the floor joists in the basement or crawl space.

Using fiberglass batt insulation anywhere in a basement or crawl space is not a wise choice. The batts can easily fall out of place from between joists, and they do nothing to stop energy-wasting air leakage that brings outside air into the house. The paper facing on fiberglass batt insulation provides a perfect place for mold to grow if there's moisture in the air.

Invest in a foundation transformation!

Whether your house has a crawl space, a basement or both, don't settle for damp, moldy space beneath your house. Global Dwelling can transform basements and crawl spaces with a full range of improvements, from air sealing to waterproofing and home insulation in New York

Basement air sealing and insulation

Dr. Energy Saver was called to help transform the basement of a 100-year-old house into an energy efficient and comfortable space with insulation and replacement windows.

The first step in any basement or crawl space insulation upgrade is to seal the rim joist that extends around the perimeter of the foundation. Cracks in the rim joist, along with clearance holes for plumbing and electric lines cause major air leakage and energy loss.

Global Dwelling can seal all these leaks with spray foam or a combination of rigid foam and spray foam.

After sealing the rim joist, energy technicians will insulate foundation walls with rigid foam insulation. The SilverGlo™ foam insulation boards used exclusively by Dr. Energy Saver outperform other brands of rigid foam insulation. They are faced with a radiant barrier that increases wintertime energy savings by reflecting heat back toward the living space.

    Customer Testimonial

              I am writing to tell you what nice people you have working for you and what a great job everyone at your company did at my home. Gosia who answers the phone is fantastic. Dino and Austin who were here today did everything they could do the right job for me and they really seem as though they want to learn all there is to know so that they can be long term valuable assets to your company. Gamal and the guys who were here yesterday were excited as well and had to deal with some contant and annoying interruptions from my neighbors which they handled very well and politely. I also had an occasion to contact David Friello, the project manager for EMPOWER on the 24/25th and I told him how good everyone at Global Dwelling has been to me in that exchange. The reason why I contacted him will be clear when you read the exchange up to get in it's proper order as the newest mail shows up top.
