Basement Insulation Contractor in Toronto and the GTA
Toronto Tapers is proud to provide quality basement insulation services to Toronto and the GTA.
Basement insulation is an integral part of the overall home insulation system. Depending on the type and condition of the foundation of your commercial or residential structure, inside or outside insulation can be used.
Concrete foundations, found in almost all houses built since the 1920s, can be insulated from the inside or outside. Older rubble, brick or stone foundations often need to be insulated from the outside, as they are not as moisture or heat resistant as concrete.
Inside insulation can be installed at any time of year, regardless of weather. It is also cost-effective and provides a practical insulation solution for those not looking to engage in the extensive construction process involved in outside insulation.
Outside insulation has its own set of benefits, as well as complications. As mentioned, it requires an excavation of the soil around the foundation. However, the outside wall is often more continuous than inside walls, which makes it easier to properly insulate. Additionally, if it is an old build being insulated, the exterior wall can be repaired as it is insulated. As all the work takes place outside the structure, the interior goings on are not interrupted. It also prevents frost from penetrating the foundation.
