This basement in Derby, CT was crowded, uninviting, and not a space the family felt comfortable using. They wanted to turn it into a space they could use year round, so they called Connecticut Basement Systems to get the job done.
Micah Smith came out to the home, and quickly surveyed what could be done to this space. He brought out Sheldon Lennon and his team, and they quickly got to work! They first air sealed the entire home with rim joist insulation. This insulation is important to keeping the basement warm, and it is an affordable option that is high coverage. They then installed ThermalDry floor tiles in sandstone gray. These tiles are a great option because they can snap together over concrete, and create a great thermal barrier, so your feet are never cold! We also installed Everlast wall panels around the entire basement. These panels are made of inorganic materials and great for the basement environment!
This basement completely transformed into a space this family can now use for whatever they please! Call us TODAY for your free basement finishing estimate!
Damp basement conditions can easily ruin certain flooring materials –like plywood, oriented strand board (OSB) and carpeting installed directly over a basement slab floor. It’s messy, expensive and discouraging to remove moisture-damaged materials from your basement. At Connecticut Basement Systems, we have a solution to this common problem: ThermalDry floor tiles. The high-density PVC plastic used to form the body of ThermalDry flooring tiles is strong, durable and immune to moisture damage! The underside of each ThermalDry tile features nubbed construction to create a drainage plane as well as a thermal break to shield your feet from the cold concrete floor.
The owners of this home wanted extra living space, but their basement was too cold and wet to be used for anything but storage. To create the perfect basement environment, we first had to waterproof the space. We installed WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement, and a TripleSafe sump pump to push the water out of the home. Next, we put ThermalDry carpeting on the floor, which keeps the floor 8-10 degrees warmer than the concrete underneath! Our ZenWall panels were the finishing touch on this Oxford home!
Before our Total Basement Finishing team came in, this basement was mainly used as a storage area, as seen in the first picture. The homeowners, however, wanted to make use of this space as a home gym and media center. Ron Marra, a basemet expert, came in and helped the family decide what to do.
After Justin Vizard waterproofed the basement, Eric Dobrzycki worked on transforming the basement into a beautiful living space. He installed our Drop Ceiling Tiles, which are specifically made for basement environments and have a 30 year warranty against mold and sagging. The new basement also has EverLast wall panels, which are engineered to never get moldy or rot, unlike the traditional drywall.
The owners of this home were very happy with their new basement living space, which will last for years to come.
The owners of this home were looking for a beautiful, maintenance-free way to upgrade their basement. In addition to providing a finished wall surface, our ZenWall panels provide moisture and cold protection. Each ZenWall panel has an insulated core and a reflective radiant barrier backing. Working together, these features kept this basement more comfortable and eliminated contact with cold, clammy concrete walls!
