Due to our area’s geological history, many of us in South East Michigan have homes with Basements. While we all enjoy the extra space and amenities of our subterranean refuge, having a basement can pose challenges when it comes to properly insulating our homes.

Ms. Green Construction uses the best insulating materials and practice to insulate your Rim Joist. Depending on your home’s circumstances and your particular concerns we will properly insulate this area using safe spray foam and/or foam board insulation on your rim joists.
Our expertise in insulation comes from years of experience and education in Building Science backed up by our BPI (Building Performance Institute) Certification.
