Island Basement Systems Case Studies: New closed cell exterior insulation for home in British Columbia

Saturday, April 26th, 2014 by Chris Schmidt


This homeowner was finding that their house was becoming too cold in the winter so they decided to enlist us to help fix this problem.

The project was completed in 2009 and involved the exterior cladding being removed, along with the minimal fiberglass batt insulation that was coming up short.


We fixed the cold nature of the home by providing proper insulation. Our specialists sprayed R20 with the PolarFoam Soya closed cell spray foam to create completely air tight walls. The wall sheathing and cladding was re-installed by the owner and the results were a significantly warmer, more comfortable and energy efficient home.
