Rim Joist/Sill Plate

Project Info

Project Description

As warm air rises and leaves your home through the roof in the winter time, cool air from outside enters the home through the rim joist area.  In most homes, the rim joist is the area where electricians and plumbers run there pipes and wires.  This allows cool air to follow those chase ways, and makes it more difficult to heat your home.
