Has anyone used EcoFoil or radiant barrier/insulation in basement?
We are trying to protect our concrete basement from moisture. We were thinking about putting EPS foam on the floors and walls as a thermal and vapor barrier. We still may go that direction, but I am concerned about our daughter’s chemical sensitivities and the flame retardants in the foam. Has anyone used a radiant barrier like EcoFoil on the walls and concrete slab (under laminate)? Here is a link to the product: http://www.ecofoil.com/All-Products/Concrete-Insulation. We plan to insulate the walls with mineral wool batts on top of the foam or foil, so I am not too concerned about it’s insulative value. Thank you!
