Using DuroFoam to Insulate your Basement Floor

May 9, 2011

Written by: Melissa Carruthers

Last week I covered how to insulate your basement floor using PlastiSpan insulation. Plasti-Fab has another insulation product called DuroFoam, that can be used in this application as well. Essentially DuroFoam is PlastiSpan but DuroFoam is laminated with a green side and a silver side. This allows for flexibility and durability in the product.

PlastiSpan and DuroFoam are closed-cell EPS insulations. PlastiSpan is available in 2′ x 8′ and 4′ x 8′ sheets; DuroFoam comes in 4′ x 8′ sheets. Both are suitable and recommended as the insulation component in the topic of our discussion: basement floors. They are both easy to cut and install.

Below is a video of our DuroFoam product being installed in a basement floor application. You will note they follow the same steps as spelled out in the previous blog for PlastiSpan.
