ThermalDry® is a modular tile option that elevates flooring on top of plastic pegs, creating a thermal break between your cold basement floor and your family's feet! In other words, ThermalDry® Floor Tiles make your basement floor surface 8 - 10 degrees (F) warmer than cold concrete! Not only are they warmer to the toes, the specially crafted tiles allow air the circulate underneath, facilitating the drying of trapped vapors and moisture. A vapor barrier and good air circulation are crucial components to long-lasting beauty and value for your basement refinishing project. While no one plans for their basement to get wet, ThermalDry® tiles are designed to hold up to flooding conditions, whether from groundwater flooding or a plumbing failure.
EverLast™ basement wall panels are engineered to never get moldy or rot. They cannot be damaged by moisture and won't support mold or mildew growth. EverLast™ Basement Wall Panels are NOT like drywall. Drywall with fiberglass insulation supports mold growth, will damage from moisture, and will lose insulation value when wet. EverLast™ Basement Wall Panels are a 1/2" cement board with a two tone vinyl surface that is much stronger than drywall and never needs repainting. Along with the superior strength and resistance to mold and rot, the everlast panels install much quicker without the need for mudding, sanding, priming or painting.
The CleanSpace® Wall System utilizes a thick (20mil) white poly sheet material to completely cover basement foundation walls. CleanSpace® is installed by fastening the material to the rim joist atop the foundation wall, and by installing press-fit plastic fasteners into the masonry.
Like our other basement wall products, CleanSpace® achieves several important goals. As part of your waterproofing system, it creates an effective moisture and vapor barrier. The wall covering forces all wall seepage and moisture to flow into your perimeter drain system. The white poly surface eliminates the need to paint basement walls, providing a bright, stain-resistant finish that never needs repainting or maintenance.
Why paint your foundation walls, when the CleanSpace® System provides an attractive finish treatment that won’t stain or wear out?
ZenWall makes your basement walls look "almost finished" for a fraction of the cost of finishing your basement. Your basement will be dry, warmer, cleaner, and brighter. Made entirely of inorganic materials that will not rot or support mold growth. Used with a perimeter basement waterproofing system to waterproof a basement wall, and stop water vapor from coming through the wall into the basement air.
This home in Iron Mountain, MI had had some finishing work done to their basement in the past. They wanted the basement completed and upgraded, which is why they called Northland Basement Systems.
Basement space is different from the rest of the house and requires a different type of flooring. Our ThermalDry flooring is just right for your cold, damp, hard concrete basement floors. ThermalDry comes in a variety of styles and colors, shown here is the Charcoal carpeting.
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.
If you're planning to create a finished basement, our dropped ceiling system is an excellent investment. The finished ceiling will hide unsightly framing and fiberglass insulation, while still providing easy access to overhead wiring, plumbing and ductwork.
While many standard ceiling tiles are made from cellulose-rich materials that can attract mold and sag over time, our ceiling tiles are made from inorganic mineral wool. They won’t attract mold or be damaged by moisture. In fact, they come with a 30-year warranty against sagging and mold damage.
Our insulated ceiling tiles will help make your basement more beautiful and more comfortable. Reduced sound transmission upstairs is another notable benefit.
An affordable, quick way to stabilize block or poured concrete walls is with Carbon Armor. The strong carbon fiber straps are attached to the wall with epoxy and don't protrude from the wall so they can be easily covered with paint or light wall panels.
This homeowner was experiencing settlement in one corner of their home along with two sections of block walls bowing inward. The settlement was corrected by installing 8 of our 288 push piers from inside the basement. To stop further inward movement of the basement walls, we used Geo-Lock wall anchors. Once the home was stabilized, lifted, and the walls were pulled back into place the cracks were then tuck pointed.
As a baseboard drainage system, DryTrak® installs above the floor and along the inside perimeter of the basement.
If you have a monolithic foundation, meaning that your floor and footing were poured as one piece, this is the only drainage system that's appropriate. DryTrak® is also perfect for other applications when jackhammering the floor is not an option-- in basements with radiant heat, for example.
The home owner also had concerns with their block foundation bowing inward. As forces of nature, such as moisture and frost, interact with the soil around your home, the soil expands. That expansion results in constant inward force on your foundation wall until it can no longer support the pressure, causing cracking, bowing, and tipping. This is when we recommend the use of CarbonArmor, which will immediately stabilize your foundation walls and permanently protect against any further inward movement.
