Basement wall and floor insulation designed for basements
Ohio Basement Systems offers exclusive rigid foam insulation products designed specifically for the basement. Rigid foam doesn’t absorb water, making it one of the best basement insulation methods for long-lasting performance.
Whether you’re looking to insulate your basement walls, floor or both, we have the solution for your home.
ExTremeBloc™ provides waterproof insulation with a thermal barrier.
ExTremeBloc™ Panels are a durable, versatile insulation solution for basements and crawl spaces. ExTremeBloc™ is an expanded polystyrene foam insulation that’s been infused with graphite and combined with a silver radiant heat barrier. The result is a highly effective insulation panel that provides great benefits for the basement.
- Graphite particles improve insular properties by 24%
- Radiant heat barrier on visible side keeps heat in
- Closed-cell insulation will not soak up moisture

If you’re considering finishing or remodeling your basement, we also recommend our basement wall panels. The panels include a ExTremeBloc™ foam insulation core, built-in wiring channels and steel nailing flanges that make it easy to install finished wallboard.
Why fiberglass insulation shouldn’t be used in the basement
Many basements are insulated with fiberglass batts that are installed between the ceiling joists. The problem with this method is that it only insulates the upper part of the home and does nothing to improve your basement.
Fiberglass batts shouldn’t be used to insulate finished basement walls because they can absorb moisture and attract mold. When damp, fiberglass insulation compresses and falls out of place, doing more harm than good. Rigid foam insulation doesn’t have any of these issues and it can effectively stop drafts and air leaks. By insulating your basement with our foam insulation products, you’re making an investment that pays for itself.
