Tips for Insulating a Cellar

Rockwool insulation, as installed in a cellar

Danny and Joe welcome callers’ questions each week on the Today’s Homeowner Radio Show.

Here’s a question from our Sept. 21 broadcast:

Marj in New York says, “I need your help. We built a new house in 2006. We found a builder using our local family-owned lumber company; however, our builder took off before finishing the house. 

We need to insulate our cellar so that we can get a certificate of occupancy. My husband and I will be installing the insulation. A friend advised us that the easiest way to insulate our cellar is to use blanket insulation. What is this and where can I get it? Can you offer us any advice?”

We tell Marj we often recommend a mineral wool insulation because it is more moisture resistant. Marj can talk to some installation companies to gather some labor prices.
