Insulation Services Case Studies: Properly Insulating a Basement - Markham, VA

Thursday, October 11th, 2018 by Crystal Bonner


Homeowners in Markham, Virginia had a basement that wasn't insulated. Poured concrete basement walls are buried in cool earth and are perpetually cold. The dense concrete has a lot of mass and you can never heat them up. In the summer, warm humid air from outside hits your cold basement walls and condensation forms, supporting mold. 


Comfenergy properly insulated the basement with closed cell spray foam and Basement to Beautiful Panels. This resulted in a warmer, more comfortable basement, warmer floors above the basement, less condensation in the summertime, and lower fuel bills.
