Wahoo Walls is a basement finishing paneling system. It is water and fire resistant, supposedly has an insulation value of R13, and takes care of 4 of the most brutal steps of DIY basement finishing (framing, insulation, drywall hanging and mudding) in one step. It's paintable and doesn't have the ugly seams that many basement finishing systems do.

R-VALUE: 40.0, SUITABLE FOR: new construction, retrofitTHERMAL PERFORMANCE: At R-3.5 per in., the cellulose in this system yields an overall value of R-40.PROS:• Familiar building process means lower labor costs with readily available materials.• If cellulose is used, the project has a lower environmental impact.• Large moisture-storage capacity allows wall cavities to dry gradually.CONS:• Fairly involved insulation process can add to labor costs.• Reduces interior space by 3%.

Conserve Energy and use nontoxic materials. Compared to fiberglass insulation, our natural fiber insulation: * Doesn't require a warning label * Has mostly recycled content * Non-toxic; no respiratory or other safety equipment recommended * Retains R-value in colder conditions because it is denser * Has superior acoustical properties; controls airborne noise such as airplanes * Requires less energy to manufacturer * Does not contain formaldehyde
