Insulating a slab on grade What’s the best way to insulate a slab-on-grade foundation?  Martin Holladay explains insulating a slab on grade in the Energy Smart Details department. Insulating a slab on grade depends on at least four factors: the climate, the type of foundation, whether the slab includes hydronic tubing for radiant heat, and the severity of the local termite problem.

Keeping the foundation warm:  A layer of rigid foam insulation on the outside of a poured foundation is a smart move, but choosing a protective covering for exposed insulation above grade can be complicated
