If your basement remodeling ideas include installing a basement finishing system with Total Basement Finishing and then laying down your own carpeting or padding, we have the perfect answer for you. ThermalDry Basement Floor Matting creates an inorganic barrier that will never grow mold or rot between the damp basement floor and the new carpet in your finished basement.
Like all ThermalDry Basement Flooring, ThermalDry Basement Floor Matting creates a thermal break between your finished basement and the cold basement floor. Installing ThermalDry Flooring makes your basement floor 8-10 degrees warmer than before and makes your finished basement more energy efficient.
While Basement Systems and Total Basement Finishing do not recommend installation of linoleum, tile, or hardwood flooring on top of its floor matting (hardwood flooring is NEVER a good idea in a finished or unfinished basement), ThermalDry Basement Floor Matting is an appropriate surface for your wall-to-wall carpeting or padding installations. We recommend installing carpeting with tack strips instead of gluing it to the panels (although it has been done) so that you may still use the same subfloor again and again with new carpeting. Normal carpeting will not generally be as easy to dry in the case of a wet basement as the finished ThermalDry Basement Floor Systems, but it will provide you with a world of options when you're finishing your basement!
Flooring that will never mold or rot! The ThermalDry floor matting creates an inorganic barrier to prevent your basement floor from potential water and moisture entrants.
If you're not planning on finishing your basement, ThermalDry Basement Floor Matting is still a good idea for your basement, as it will still provide the vapor barrier and thermal break between your cold basement floor and the rest of the basement.
Additionally, it prevents water vapor from getting trapped underneath, festering, and growing mold, making your basement more useful for safe storage of your valuable and important personal possessions.
