Basement Finishing Systems

They don't use drywall. The Wall panels are made of non-organic materials that will dry out quickly in the event of flooding and resist even normal basement moisture. This avoids a major issue with drywall, which used organic paper as a facing material, which can easily develop mold.  They provide wall insulation. Built-from-scratch drywall finished basement walls have no insulation unless they are framed with sleeper studs and insulation is installed beneath them. Since basements are either completely or partially underground, temperature control is of major concern, and the wall panels used by basement systems have built-in insulating properties.  No DIY installation is possible. All these companies make their money through the installation, not the materials, so it is virtually impossible for a DIYer to buy the materials themselves to install.  Suspended ceiling are the norm.  A suspended ceiling is the most expedient way of adding a ceiling to your basement while preserving access to services located near the joists (wiring, etc.). Flooring is not included.  Do not assume that flooring comes with the basement finishing system. Their main product is the wall paneling, not the floor or ceiling.  The cost is high. Basement finishing systems are far more expensive that a DIY- or even contractor-built standard basement finishing job. So, depending on the size of your basement, these can run $30,000 and upward. The businesses are franchised. Not all franchises are equal in customer service or quality, so it is wise to do your research. While the materials themselves may come from highly reputable and respectable manufacturers, you may be unlucky enough to come upon a franchise that is incompetent or dishonest.  Salesmen can be aggressive. Be prepared. Basement finishing systems fall into that shadowy world of replacement windows, sunrooms and bathtub refinishing. Be certain of one thing. The salesperson will push hard, but do not be afraid to push back. Hard.

Constructing Basement Space A basement can be a difficult environment to finish because the space is typically colder and more humid than above-ground space. Finishing a basement with traditional building materials presents the risk of encouraging mold, mildew, water damage, or warping. In many areas of the country, a vapor barrier must be installed before hanging wallboard. That can cause more harm than good because it traps moisture in the walls. It may also mean no access to the foundation or mechanicals.A basement system means the entire project is installed at once instead of piecemeal through individual contractors. A good basement system contractor will also lead the homeowner through the necessary steps required to ensure a dry, healthy, and code-compliant basement upgrade. Owens Cornings only sells their Basement Finishing System through certified, franchised dealers to ensure that their product will meet the highest installation standards. “These professionals will conduct inspections to assess the condition of the basement and recommend any needed repairs prior to starting work (waterproofing, mold remediation), and will also handle all needed permitting,” Mitchell says.
