Summary

What are the 5 different options for Slab insulation in Rescheck Software? We see many people who have questions about the slab insulation on a Rescheck. Especially, since slab insulation was made mandatory in the required climate zones last year. That means that you can no longer increase the insulation in your ceiling, walls, windows, and doors to compensate for an uninsulated slab in locations where insulation is required. So everyone wants to know what are the options that I can use for insulating my slab and which one is best if my slab is already poured and I forgot to insulate.

Option 1: You would need to include this A + B insulation before the slab was poured. One piece of insulation goes vertical and a longer one horizontal. Add the A + B to give you your insulation depth.

Option 2: This is maybe the best option for someone who poured the slab before doing the Rescheck. You can take the A portion vertical and then go horizontal with B piece to equal the depth required by code. After inspection you could backfill and cover.

Option 3: As simple as it gets, go straight vertical as far down as you need to go. This slab shows no footer. You can add this slab insulation option after pouring the slab.

Option 4: Go straight down to the footer as long as your footer is deep enough this is simple as well. This could be added after the slab is poured as well.

Option 5: This goes inside of the slab vertically and would need to be added before the slab is poured. The insulation could also act as an expansion groove. This requires pre-planning.
