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.
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.
Foundation wall cracks and bowing basement walls are signs that your foundation is in need of repair. Our carbon fiber basement wall repair solutions can help reinforce your bowing walls and repair cracks.
If you use your basement to store valuable items, such as family photos and keepsakes, holiday decorations and tools, water and excess moisture can damage your belongings. Northland Basement Systems makes it possible to have a dry basement, and we can help you make the most out of this extra space in your home. We solve all kinds of basement water problems, including those caused by condensation, runoff and subsurface drainage issues.
For basement waterproofing to be effective, it should capture groundwater before it leaks onto the basement floor. WaterGuard® was designed to solve the issues not addressed in alternative methods of waterproofing and to protect the basement against all possible leaks.
Unlike “waterproof” membranes or coatings that allow hydrostatic pressure to build up against the foundation (increasing the chances of high-volume leaks), an interior basement drainage system reduces hydrostatic pressure. It does this by giving ground water an escape route.
A crawl space that’s damp and dirty is more than just an eyesore. It causes health, safety, comfort and home resale problems. This happens because a damp, dirty crawl space creates a favorable environment for mold, mildew, wood rot, insects and animal pests. Who wants these difficulties right below a home’s living space?
The good news is that a nasty crawl space can be transformed into a clean, dry, attractive and energy efficient space using the CleanSpace® encapsulation system.
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.
