Servicing Michigan's Lower Peninsula & Greater Toledo
Most homes in Michigan have insufficient or no insulation in their rim joist, causing cold outside air to enter the home around the foundation area easily.
Open cell spray foam expands 100 times to fill all the cracks and crevices in the rim joist. With a total air seal that other insulation materials can’t hold a stick to, spray foam in the rim joist is one of the most cost-efficient ways for homeowners to take control of the comfort and energy efficiency in their home and basement.
If there is currently old fiberglass insulation in the rim joist, a crew will remove the old insulation and dispose of it, so you don’t have to mess with it. They will then ensure any furniture or storage bins are cleared away from the basement walls. If necessary, the crew will then place plastic over the windows and any shelves and storage to ensure they don’t get overspray on them.
If we are also insulating your crawl space, the rim joist is included in that scope of work as well.
