Basement Floor Insulation
A high-performance insulation solution for cold, damp concrete floors
See how ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™ can give you warm basement floors and improve the comfort & energy efficiency of your whole house!
Finishing or remodeling your basement is the most economical way to expand your home’s living space. Insulation is essential to make the basement more comfortable, and a well-insulated basement will improve comfort and energy efficiency throughout your home.
A concrete slab provides a solid base for a finished floor. But your floor is bound to be uncomfortably cold unless you install insulation along with the subfloor material. That’s why ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™ was developed.
Avoid problems with wood subflooring
Some contractors solve the “cold concrete” problem by installing plywood subflooring on a base of wood sleepers that rest on the concrete slab.
We don’t recommend this approach because of wood’s tendency to absorb moisture, attract mold and eventually succumb to decay. Installing a floor that will later have to be torn out is not a wise investment.

Floor insulation and underlayment, installed in a single step
Close-up view. ThermalDry® Floor Decking is made from two waterproof inorganic materials: graphite-infused SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation and magnesium oxide board.
Unlike wood subfloor materials that absorb moisture and attract mold, ThermalDry® Floor Decking is made from SilverGlo™ rigid foam and composite board - inorganic materials that won't be damaged by mold or moisture.
ThermalDry® Floor Decking comes in 2-ft. X 4-ft. panels that interlock with tongue & groove joints. Laying down this subfloor system achieves slab insulation and underlayment in a single step. A base layer of 1-in.-thick rigid foam insulation enables your contractor to create a continuous thermal barrier between the concrete and your finished floor. Bonded to the foam, a magnesium oxide composite provides a stable, waterproof base for the finished flooring you select for your basement.
