Insulation for a Finished Basement: Minneapolis Drywall 

Long-term savings, increased equity, and added living space.  These are just a few of the reasons that many of our clients are wisely choosing us for their own finished basement project in their Minneapolis homes.  Most homeowners are aware of the substantial savings that come with insulation of a home, and insulation in an attic is one of the first things a new homeowner is likely to complete.

However, if you have been thinking of a finished basement, now is the time to call.  The average Minneapolis homeowner will save a substantial amount of money on their winter heating bill with a fully-insulated and finished basement.

Finished Basement Contributors: Surprising Facts about Basement Insulation

It is a well-known fact that hot air rises, but homes actually lose heat in all directions.  Insulation in an attic is a great idea and offers long-term savings, but its only part of the equation.  Besides insulation in the top and sides of your house, it is important to stop the heat from escaping from your basement.  Up to 30% of energy loss can occur in the basement.  Home owners do have a couple of options here.

The first is insulation of just the basement ceilings and close off all vents located in the basement, especially those on the furnace unit or exposed HVAC ducts.  Essentially, this turns your basement into an “outdoor” space, similar to a three season porch.  The second, our recommendation, is a completely finished basement and gain living space that can be used even in the winter.

  • Efficiency:  Ceiling insulation is often compressed by numerous wires, ducts, and pipes which makes it less efficient.
  • Structural Insulation:  Many homeowners choose to create a stud wall in a finished living space.  There is extra protection against the elements inherent in the use of a vapor barrier, wall cavities filled with high-quality insulation, and even the drywall itself.  *Note: Some homeowners do opt to go with rigid foam sheathing, which requires
  • Increased Equity: A finished basement is one of the most cost-efficient home improvements in terms of increased equity ahead of remodeling a bathroom or adding a two-story addition.
