Insulating Basement Ceiling
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.
