A basement can serve as a perfect place for an additional guest bedroom, an in-law suite, or a workspace.
However, there are special needs, such as proper water protection, floor, and finished basement insulation.
Without it, a space below the house may become cold and cause moisture development.
We are basement construction contractors from Massachusetts standing for proper quality and longevity.
With our licensed services, you get a guarantee on all works and a cozy space for living right in your basement.
Basement insulation is not just desirable, but almost a necessary step in basement remodeling.
It protects your house from dangerous components of wall materials (concrete, etc.) and lowers humidity a bit, so breathing becomes safer and healthier.
If you properly insulate your basement, living in it won’t be different from a usual room. There will be the same temperature and air quality. Moreover, with insulated walls, you save up to $350 yearly on heating a basement.
Heat loss reduces, and energy efficiency increases up to 20%. Regularly, insulating finished basement walls cost from $ 2.39 to $4.5 per square foot.
An average cost for the whole surface is $1,462 at the low end and $2,195 at the high end.

Replacing Basement Insulation
Old insulation materials get damaged after years of usage. While reinsulating, we replace them with new durable panels. Our experts advise choosing 100% inorganic materials because they are protected from mildew, rot, and mold. There are a few basic materials.
- Polyurethane spray foam is not a thing for DIY repairs, and only professionals should apply it.
Its’ strongest benefit is its versatility to almost any wall type.
- Fiberglass is difficult to access and reliable. Installation is available only with the pro’s help.
- Rigid plastic boards are the easiest to install for DIY makers.
Different materials meet different standards. For example, rigid boards are related to R-13. The value of fiberglass and spray foam varies from R-13 to R-19 and R-21. Achieve the highest level of protection with our crew of experts.
