A rim joist is the board just above the foundation at the perimeter of your home’s floor system. It leaks unconditioned air from outside and is not insulated properly, contributing to cold basements in winter and condensation/humidity in summer. RimTight insulation seals and insulates your rim joist. Rim joists are sealed and insulated with one of two methods, and the installer would choose which option is the best for each property.
Both methods provide the same benefits.
Insulating the rim joists does a number of things:
- Saves energy
- Lowers heating costs
- it pays for itself
- Creates a warmer, more comfortable basement
- Reduces warm humid air entering in summer
- less condensation, dehumidifier runs less
For a full energy efficient, warm basement, we recommend RimTight with Foamax wall insulation, EverLast Basement Windows and, when installing a finished floor, ThermalDry Insulated Floor Decking.
These products are exclusively offered by Basement Systems dealers.
