The type of floor insulation we recommend depends on where the floor is located. Here's how we solve a variety of floor insulation problems in the home.
Floor above a garage: If you have a living space above the garage, we use blown-in insulation to fill the space between the floor joists. Dense-pack cellulose is often the best solution if the garage ceiling is finished with gypsum board.
Floor above the basement: The first priority here is to air-seal and insulate the rim joist. This can be done with 2-part spray foam or with a combination of rigid foam insulation and spray foam. Rigid foam wall insulation may also be recommended.
Basement floor insulation: Avoid wood subflooring when insulating a basement floor to avoid problems with mold and moisture damage. Instead, use specialized subflooring called ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™, made from waterproof rigid foam and composite board. This provides a thermal break for the floor and supports any finished flooring you want to put on top of it.
Floor above a crawl space: If you have cold floors above the crawl space, it's recommended that you insulate your crawl space. This includes sealing the rim joist, as well as insulating the crawl space walls and floor. In northern states, rigid foam wall insulation should also be installed.
Floor above a cantilever: The cantilevered floor area created by an upper floor overhang usually requires an insulation upgrade. Temporarily removing the soffit material covering the underside of the cantilever provides access to the joist bays so they can be sealed and insulated. Blown-in insulation is usually the material of choice for these spaces.
