The Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation In Basements
Transform Your Space From Drafty and Uncomfortable to Warm and Inviting
We’ve all experienced what it’s like to be in a residential basement that feels drafty, uncomfortable, and downright creepy! When you add in the dangerous mold, allergens, and pests that can come with these types of dark and damp conditions, it’s not a part of the house where anybody wants to spend a great deal of time. But spray foam insulation can transform your home’s basement environment, helping to make it a safe and inviting living space for your family.
Whether you’re building a new house or finishing the basement in your existing residence, spray foam is the superior choice for insulating this area of your house.
Benefits of Spray Foam Insulation In New Constructions
If you’re currently building a new home, you already know that the construction process requires you to make constant choices, which often leads to decision fatigue. When you’re already overwhelmed about the various upgrades and finishes throughout the house, it can be easy to overlook the details or cut corners on the basement. But whether you’re planning to use this part of the house for a man cave, home gym, teenager hangout, or party pad, it’s going to get regular use. For this reason, it’s worth it to invest in quality insulation to keep the space clean and comfortable.
Epic Spray Foam can assess your basement during the construction phase and make an expert recommendation on the best kind of insulation based on your wall, floors, and ceiling materials, as well as your overall vision for the space. With most new constructions today, the basement comes with an oriented strand board wood-frame wall in addition to concrete walls. When we assess, we can advise on the best spray foam to meet the vapor barrier requirements, efficiently keeping good air quality in and unwanted moisture, odors, and noise out.
Upgrading to Spray Foam In Existing Home Basements
The benefit of finishing a basement in an already-existing home is that you already know the ins and outs of the space, what you want to use it for, and air quality, moisture, and sound concerns. This will help you hone in on the best insulation to use as you finish or renovate the space. For instance, sound mitigation may be a chief concern if you’re using your basement for a home theater or office. If you’ve dealt with leaks or flooding in the past, creating a solid moisture barrier will be top priority.
In addition to improved air quality, moisture, and mold prevention, and noise reduction in your basement, spray foam can improve structural integrity, reduce pollen and other allergens, stop pest infestations, and eliminate musty odors, making this area of your home more safe and comfortable.
If you’re finishing or re-finishing your existing home’s basement, Epic Spray Foam is once again here to help. We can complete a free on-site assessment of your space and your unique property needs and provide a same-day recommendation and quote for the most optimal and efficient insulation.
An Investment Worth Making
Whether your home is brand new or 100 years old, spray foam insulation is an excellent choice for your basement. In addition to enhancing this space's overall cleanliness and atmosphere, spray foam can save you an average of 20% on your year-round energy bills.
Additionally, spray foam insulation doesn’t require frequent updating and ongoing maintenance. It’s made to last throughout the lifespan of your structure or approximately 80-100 years. It does not lose its shape or ability to resist air and moisture over time, as many common insulation materials do, saving you time, money, and frustration for years to come. When you combine all these benefits with the new 2023 insulation tax credit, the decision is a no-brainer!
