Insulating Basement Ceiling

Insulating Basement Ceiling

Installation Instructions

  • Inspect the installation area and make any needed repairs before installing the InfraStop® double bubble insulation.

  • Check the basement ceiling to determine whether the joists are 16” or 24” on-center.

  • Begin at one end of the house and staple the product to the top of the band board or the subfloor (also terminating this course in this fashion).

  • Insert the InfraStop® half way up into the joist cavity and staple (at approximately 3” to 4” intervals) the edge of the product to the side of the joist.

  • The goal is to split the joist cavity into two approximately equal enclosed air spaces.

  • Finish the ceiling with the specified panel or sheetrock.
