Mk1st OK, this does seem like a great product and I’d love to get the contractors I work with (I’m an energy consultant/HERS rater) to consider it as it’s getting harder for them, with increasing energy codes, to efficiently insulate the basement walls from the outside. The picture of the “contractor at work” you used at the top of this article shows him carrying a couple of bales of R13 fiberglass, implying that that’s the material you would be comparing to, but your examples assume R10 rigid foam with a full stud wall on the interior which would make your estimates more expensive than if the stud/fiberglass method was used. Most all of the contractors I work with if they don’t put 2″ of foam on the exterior of the foundation will use 1″ on the exterior and then add a stud wall with R13 batts inside where the living space is, leaving just the exterior R5 on the mechanical rooms. My question is, how can I sell your product as cost-effective to those contractors who presently use studs/fiberglass? InSoFast Great question! Here are some points we would bring to the discussion. 1. This comparison only considers the costs of framing and insulating. It leaves out things like running electric (aka raceways built into the InSoFast panels) and the cost of the completed job including finishing and details. The optimum value comparison for the contractors will be the finished room, not just an unfinished energy wall. 2. An InSoFast installation can eliminate delays and added days of work because it combines multiple components in one. An insulation inspection can be checked off at the same time as the framing and electric inspection. You can also potentially hire fewer sub-contractors for these jobs. 3. The amount of time it takes for someone to complete an InSoFast job is about the same time it takes for a seasoned professional to do it the traditional way, somewhere in the range of 175-240 sf/man-hour. However, InSoFast really doesn’t require a professional to get professional results. This kind of work can easily go to the new guys, and it often does. InSoFast is easy, even for the novice. At the risk of sounding “high on our own supply” we’d also offer up the potential cautionary tales of homeowners opting to do the jobs themselves should their contractors refuse to adapt. Check out our Featured Projects section for more on that. Lastly, you mention putting 1-2″ of foam on the exterior of the foundation…we really hope you don’t mean like this. Tammy Bahm Woodburn Are the panels designed to cut along a horizontal and/or vertical axes? With an 85.5″ floor-to-joist height, 2 panels certainly don’t fit. InSoFast Yep, the panels are very adaptable and can be shaped to your liking. Here is a link to our video playlist that covers all sorts of tips and tricks for cutting and fitting the panels: Technical > Interior Guides > Cutting and Fitting chief7 Hi, I am interested in your product. I have a Manufactured home with an attached room constructed of corrugated steel.Can Insofast panels be installed on this type of surface? Thanks — Lawrence InSoFast It is very likely as we have had great results in corrugated steel shipping containers. Next to the condition of your wall, one of the biggest concerns here will be the amount of surface contact between the InSoFast studs and the steel as it will determine the holding power. For comparison, we have tested our studs using PL Premium 3X against concrete for a peak stress of 108psi. You should check out our Container InSerts product page to read up on the installation recommendations for this type of surface. We’d also recommend ordering a sample panel and performing an adhesive test on your wall.

Reply Jo-Anna@APrettyLife March 5, 2015 at 9:37 AM Hi! We are not particularly worried about the exposure of the wood seams, or the potential problems that would be associated with flooding. No more than we would be if we had laid any type of flooring. But I reached out to DRIcore to see what they had to say. Here is their response, hoping this may help? Feel free to ask anything else, we’re happy to help! “DRIcore is not flood protection, it’s designed to separate your finished floor from the effects of moisture that sweats through your basement floor slab and into your basement. Many people believe their basement is dry because they have never observed water accumulating in it, puddles or otherwise. But if you take a 3’ x 3’ piece of 6 mil polyethylene and tape it to the floor along all four edges, after a week or two, you will see water droplets on the underside of the poly. This is the moisture from the ground sweating through the slab. Moisture moves from more to less, and for this reason, your basement slab is almost always wicking moisture from the earth beneath it into your basement space. DRIcore is designed to protect from this type of moisture penetration. The elevated cleats separate the wood from the concrete and the air gap created by those cleats facilitate air movement which dries up the moisture before it can become a problem. DRIcore can also help in instances of small amounts or water, like those experienced with a crack in a basement foundation wall. As for the exposed wood edge, under normal performance, it will not be a problem. However, if you did have excessive amounts of water in your basement, and that water accumulated in areas deeper than the height of the cleats, regardless of whether or not the bottom membrane covered all the exposed wood, the water would penetrate into the edges of the floor product, which is problematic. If the DRIcore has gotten wet, you have two options – remove it and replace it, or bring in professional grade dehumidification equipment and remove the moisture from the wood products with-in the room. Either way, before taking the remedial action on the exposed subfloor and any other organic products that have been compromised, the origin of the water source needs to be dealt with.”
