Rim Joist Insulation

What Types of Insulation Are Available?

At DeVere Insulation Home Performance, our insulation products are installed expertly by highly trained and professional insulation contractors to ensure they withstand the test of time. Over the years, insulation products and installation methods have evolved to provide better protection. Insulation materials have a designated R-value to determine their resistance to heat flow. When you choose us, we will offer the best insulation material options to protect your home and your family. Our insulation materials include:

  • Fiberglass Insulation – Traditional fiberglass insulation has been the standard for home insulation for decades, and for a good reason. It’s an affordable solution that provides exceptional R-value. Not only that, it can be installed in a variety of applications using either loose-fill or batts.
  • Spray Foam InsulationSpray foam insulation has changed the way homeowners think about home insulation. Spray foam offers unmatched coverage and combines air sealing in one step. Our team can apply spray foam to nearly any area, including hard-to-reach areas such as tight corners. Once applied, the product expands to fill the space, creating a complete thermal barrier.
  • Foam Board Insulation – Foam board insulation is a good option for basement insulating when properly installed by a knowledgeable contractor. Foam board provides excellent R-value and can be cut to shape to protect tight spaces.

Highest Value Basement Insulation Locations

When it comes to basement insulation, homeowners will notice the best results when they insulate around the rim joist and box sills. Basements are challenging to insulate because there are many spaces where conditioned air can escape. This is especially true in older homes. Our team understands how to insulate your home best to maximize energy efficiency and reduce your home’s heating and cooling costs.

  • Rim Joist – The rim joist is the final joist that completes the end of the row of joists that support your home’s first floor. A rim joist is found on the perimeter of the basement ceiling. Often the rim joist runs alongside your home’s exterior, which makes it susceptible to heat transfer. Our team can install spray foam or foam board insulation along the rim joist to help prevent the loss of conditioned air.
  • Box Sills – Box sills are located around the edge of the basement ceiling, where two joists run parallel and meet the wall of the basement. With no protection from the outside air temperatures, box sills can dramatically affect the temperature in a basement. We recommend adding spray foam insulation to insulate and air seal box sills.
