Buck Buckley's Total Basement Finishing Q&A
How is the basement different from the upper levels of the home?
The basement's foundation walls are made of concrete and are below ground causing the basement to naturally have more moisture than the rest of the home. The fact that the basement is underground also means there is a higher risk of water damage or flooding in the basement than in the rest of the home. This is why having moisture and mold resistant products in your basement is a necessity.
What are the advantages of finishing your basement versus adding an addition to your home?
Typically when you finish your basement, rather than adding an addition to your home, the project will cost less, the construction process is quicker, and the permits can be processed faster.
What are the benefits when people choose to finance their basement project?
Making monthly payments like you do for your house and cars, makes budgeting easier, and makes the project more affordable for most people.
Why are our EverLast Walls perfect for the basement?
Our EverLast Walls are moisture and mold resistant. This way when moisture comes through the foundation wall and collects on the back of the wall panel, mold does not grow and ruin the walls.
Why is our ThermalDry Flooring perfect for the basement environment?
Our ThermalDry Flooring is designed to keep the finished flooring off the concrete, allowing any moisture that is present now, or in the future, to evaporate, rather than be trapped in the space between the flooring and the concrete slab. We offer the ThermalDry Flooring in both LVT (luxury vinyl tile) and LVP (luxury vinyl planks).
