What Are the Benefits of Insulating the Basement?

Statistics show that finishing off your basement can provide a return of 70 to 75% on your initial investment. 

Do you currently have an unfinished basement? Is it a cold and undesirable place to go in the winter? How could you make your basement a liveable space?

Adding insulation can help keep the heat in and no longer deal with cold, concrete walls.

Lose Less Heat & Save Money

When you insulate your basement walls, you are blocking the airflow that can allow cool or warm air in, depending on the time of year. By keeping the air inside, you will be in more control over the climate of the basement.
Adding insulationaids in temperature regulation year-round, allowing you to heat the area during the winter and keep it cool during the summer.

Increase Resale Value

Whether or not you plan to sell your home in the future, any improvements that you make can add value to the home and help it appraise higher.

Adding insulation in your basement helps to transform the space. Investing in insulation that is up-to-date and installed properly adds to the property value of your home and saves the future seller from having to invest in insulating the basement.

Insulating the Basement Allows You to Use It

Do you ever desire to spend time in a cold, dark basement? Is this a place that you gather to entertain guests?

Most likely the answer is no. An uninsulated basement serves as a storage unit and maybe a place to do laundry but there are very few benefits. Insulating the space can allow you to have more room for guests and maybe even add a guest bedroom for sleeping as well.

Lower the Moisture Levels

Moisture is not something that you want inside your home. If there is too much of it, mould and other bacteria can grow and disrupt the structure and living conditions within your home.

A high level of moisture is typically found in the basement since it is located beneath the ground. Adding insulation can help prevent moisture from collecting on concrete walls.

We offer a few types of insulation that have different benefits. Spray foam insulation helps seal areas that have a lot of moisture to prevent it from spreading. By not giving you only one option, you are able to decide what is best for your home in this situation.

Lowering the moisture levels can also save you money in the long term by not having to address issues of mold within your walls or rooms.
