Matt Risinger discusses the importance of and the "how to" behind installing insulation on that slab area of the basement in a house located in Boston. Regardless if you live in a location where the temperatures can become freezing, or in the mild south, you may want to investigate this insulation detail. Considering you are almost never going to remodel the slab foundation of your home, you want to do this right the first time. Watch the video to learn more.
