Friday, September 16th, 2011 by Complete Basement Systems

Winter will be here in just a couple of months, and to help homeowners prepare their houses for the cold weather Complete Basement Systems in Aurora is excited to announce one of its newest products: ExTremeBloc insulation. It's perfect for homeowners looking for crawl space insulation in Broomfield, CO, and surrounding areas.

ExTremeBloc is a graphite-infused EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) Foam Board with a radiant barrier on one side. The use of graphite in the foam increases the R-value by 24% over standard white EPS foam. A 2-inch board of ExTremeBloc is rated at R-11. This superior R-value will keep any crawl space warmer in the wintertime, as well as cooler in the summer.

"If you properly insulate your crawl space—in addition to air sealing and controlling moisture, you will save on energy costs and increase your home's comfort," writes the U.S. Department of Energy.

The team at Complete Basement Systems proudly introduced ExTremeBloc to at the Colorado Fall Home Show from September 9 to 11. Complete Basement Systems Colorado is dedicated to fixing basement, foundation and crawl space problems.
