Basement RemodelingPolyurethane foam, commonly called expanding foam insulation, is closed cell foam insulation with high r-value, durability, and ease of use. Expanding foam insulation comes in a slow rise formula for walls and cavities that require low pressure and a fast rise formula for large areas and holes. Fast rise expands 8 to 1. Polyurethane foam is water resistant and soundproof. Whether planning a new home, addition, remodeling, or just plugging the air leaks of an older home, expanding foam insulation is the hands on favorite.Basement Remodeling

I grew up in Alaska and have always wanted to live in a quonset hut. That just wasn’t done back then – I’m talking in the 1960s. But now that no one tells me what to do (I got divorced), I may finally do as I please, and get one built! I hope I can paint it yellow. Thanks drbj, I will have to keep the various road kill trophies in mind. It never fails that when I come across one, I don’t have my camera handy. I will have to work on that. Thanks again for stopping by! Hello Cuong – Not too bad. Normally that would be a bit on the high side – $33 a square foot – but with the hardwood steps, exhaust fans and tile floor – that’s pretty good. Sounds like a legit cost to finish your basement.
