Basement Walls

Before starting, check basement walls for signs of dampness. If damp, have foundation checked for cracks. Ideally wait minimum one year after construction to allow for settling.

1. Best practice is to apply approved moisture barrier.

  • Build a stud wall around basement perimeter.
  • Install COMFORTBATT® between studs.

2. Eliminate gaps and ensure a snug fit.

Using a long serrated knife carefully cut and place insulation in the space above the concrete wall and below the floor (header space).

3. Install approved vapor barrier/retarder required by local building code to cover wall and header space.
