Insulating Basement Walls with Spray Foam

We’ve written quite a bit of content on how to insulate basement walls. Most of our content features the use of foam board products which offer DIY’ers the best basement insulation solution at an affordable price.

However, the Cadilac of basement insulation solutions is using spray foam. If you can afford to hire a contractor and install spray foam then it’s really the best basement insulation solution. We wanted to share a very cool link to an article written by the guys over at One Project Closer. They recently created a very interesting video on the installation of spray foam insulation for a basement remodeling project.

The video is really informative and covers topics about closed cell vs open cell foam insulation, prep work, safety and insulation performance. If you’re interested in learning more about spray foam insulation for your home then this is a great video.

    Hey, I’ve been using your site for my basement it’s been very helpful – thank you.

    Question – french drain around perimeter of basement with a gap around perimeter as well (guessing that’s where water drains into) and if spray foam insulation is used do you spray wall top to bottom and even into the gap of the french drain?

    Thank you in advance.
