Basement finishing is the process of transforming an unfinished basement (the original basement when the house was built) into a livable, usable space. A re-finishing project involves updating a previously finished basement that has incurred water or moisture damage. The end result is the same: you want a healthy, comfortable environment. By starting with the right products and materials, you can ensure your investment in a remodeled basement is money well spent.
Basements finished with conventional building materials (wood, drywall) typically don't hold up to moisture, humidity, and other water issues. Because basements are humid and often experience leaks or groundwater seepage, water damage is the most common issue in basement finishing. Drywall gets soggy. Painted surfaces become stained. Wood paneling and trim becomes warped and moldy. Carpeting begins to smell. If that sounds familiar, read on for the solution.
Basement Systems offers an array of basement finishing products that will stand up to moisture and water. If you’re contemplating a basement remodeling, be sure to consider our waterproof, stain- and mold-resistant wall panels, flooring, ceiling tiles, and trim products.
Whether you’d describe your basement improvement project as basement restoration, basement remodeling or basement refinishing, the goal is the same: to transform an “adequate” basement into a livable one.
Everlast Wall Panels, for example, are pre-finished hard cement boards that will stand up even after getting soaked from a bad rainstorm or major sump pump failure. After your basement is pumped dry, wipe the vinyl, linen-like textured surface with a sponge and mild detergent. The panels are available with or without a bonded layer of 2-1/2-in. of high-density foam insulation. Similarly, our ThermalDry® Basement Floor Systems can be submerged for days without being damaged. Simply clean and dry the modular tiles after a water event and reinstall.
