Basement Wall Systems
After we have installed a comprehensive basement waterproofing system, you can start to look into some of our products to aid with getting your basement ready to finish. Most of these items focus on ensuring the area will be protected from water and to prevent any damage that could come from basement water. We use a few different products that have different types of applications and will keep your basement dry and safe.
Everlast™ Finished Wall System
Whether you're looking to finish your basement or you need to restore or replace what you've already done, it's very important you choose the right kind of materials and avoid having to go through this process ever again. If you've already finished the area and have experienced water seepage, excess moisture or especially municipal sewer backup, odds are you've also had to replace the drywall, insulation, carpet, wood-frames studs and all other organic building materials that most homeowners use to finish their basement. These materials are not suitable for finishing a basement because they are not waterproof and become a breeding ground for mold and other harmful bacteria to freely grow in your home. That is BAD NEWS!
The first and most important step is to solve your water problems permanently before finishing the basement. Even with the correct building materials, active seepage will introduce more moisture and humidity into the air and cause you to be breathing unhealthy air throughout your entire home. Water is erosive and will only continue to make things worse. The last thing we want any homeowner to experience is having to rip out the large investment they just made finishing their basement because it wasn't protected correctly.
So the next step is to use materials that, even if they accidentally get wet, will not be destroyed or lead to future health issues. The Everlast™ Finished Wall Restoration System is the perfect solution for creating a new living space in your home. If your drywall or paneling has been damaged and needs to be restored, these panels can be installed to replace only the lower areas that were damaged or can even replace the entire wall.
