Why You Should Insulate Your Rim Joist

Your home’s rim joist is located at the edge of your wood floor framing system, above your foundation walls. Multiple seams come together at the rim joist. If not sealed correctly, these seams will create air leakage. Air leakage causes your home’s HVAC system to work harder to cool and heat your home, which it can also make your energy bills higher. However, you can prevent air leakage from occurring with a professional insulation installation.

Premium Spray Foam Insulation

Home Solutions of Iowa can expertly fill the gaps of your rim joist with quality spray foam insulation. Rather than using the basic one-part spray foam insulation found in local hardware stores, Home Solutions of Iowa installs two-part spray foam insulation. Since this type of insulation is composed of two parts, it offers a higher level of coverage than one-part spray foam insulation. Other key benefits of Home Solutions of Iowa’s spray foam insulation include:

  • Assists with humidity control
  • Helps stop dust, insects, and pollen from entering your home
  • Resistance to moisture and mold growth
  • Reduces unwanted noise pollution from the outdoors
