Installing Basement Flooring

A basement finished with wood laminate flooring to create a personal gym.

Installation of our basement floor systems can be done quickly and with minimal noise and disruption.

Because our system installs without grout or adhesives, your flooring will be available for use immediately after the installation is complete.

Installing new flooring -- and covering that cold concrete floor with something more inviting -- improves the value of the space and makes it feel much more like home.

However, basements are unique spaces with unique requirements, and installing specialized basement flooring is your best bet to protect your investment.

Which Basement Flooring Product Is Best For You?

Our basement flooring products have been designed by basement waterproofers, who have seen conventional flooring products fail again and again in the potentially damp or humid basement environment.

We're proud to say that each of our basement flooring options are designed to resist damage from water and mold growth, while also being fully compatible with our basement drain systems. No wonder that it's one of our most popular basement services!

Below are three things that homeowners tell us they want from their basement flooring:

ThermalDry® Carpeted Flooring

Our ThermalDry® Carpeted Floor Tiles use an interlocking design to create a floating floor system in your home.

These floor tiles create a floor and sub floor system in one -- with no need to install plywood or a wood sub floor underneath that can be damaged by moisture.

These floor tiles feature a completely inorganic design, making them perfect for the basement environment. They will not support the growth of mold, mildew, or rot, and they will not be damaged by water or humidity.

As water collects behind the wall panels, it will be directed downwards into the perimeter drain system.

ThermalDry® Sub Floor Matting

Sometimes, homeowners will opt for a custom carpeting design that matches a specific color scheme, or matches the decor in the main area of their home. That's where ThermalDry® Sub Floor Matting comes in!

This floor matting is designed with interlocking plastic tiles that are completely inorganic, and connect together to create a vapor barrier on your basement floor.

Each peg rests on raised plastic pegs, creating an airspace below and a thermal break between your floor and the cold concrete. This makes your the surface of our floor matting 8-10 °F than the cold concrete below.

MillCreek Basement Flooring

The innovative MillCreek Basement Floor system combines the beauty of natural hardwood with a durable, inorganic design.

The unique interlocking design and inorganic makeup of each part of the MillCreek floor system is perfect for the basement environment -- resisting damage to water while creating a vapor barrier on your basement floor.

MillCreek is designed with the sometimes humid or damp basement environment in mind. It is impervious to damage from mold mildew, or rot, while resisting damage from moisture and humidity. And because it does not absorb water, it will not swell and buckle in the event of basement flooding.

ThermalDry® Parquet Flooring

Traditional parquet flooring is beautiful when installed! Unfortunately, flooring that incorporates organic materials such as wood, glues, and resins in its design are inappropriate for use in a finished basement.

Humidity rising upwards from the concrete can collect underneath a parquet floor, saturating the wood and leading to mold, mildew, rot, and musty odors. Wet parquet floors made with wood will also discolor, creating an eyesore.

ThermalDry® Parquet Flooring is complete inorganic, and will not be damaged by water or humidity. Its floating floor design installs quickly, making your floor usable immediately after installation.

ThermalDry® Tiled Flooring

Stone, ceramic, and marble tile is cold and hard in a basement, and grout lines will need continual maintenance to prevent them from discoloring with mildew.

ThermalDry® tiled flooring provides a warmer, more forgiving surface -- one that looks fantastic in a finished basement. Because each tile sits on raised plastic pegs, the surface of the tiles is 8-10 °F warmer than the cold concrete below.

These tiles install quickly in your basement. With no grout lines to maintain, they'll stay looking great for many years to come -- with no maintenance required!

ThermalDry® Carpeted Flooring

Mixing and matching your ThermalDry® Carpeted flooring with a tiled system is a great way to give your basement a sophisticated, architectural look.

The interlocking system provided by all ThermalDry® products makes this possible -- each tile is interchangeable with another. And because no additional sub floor system is needed with the installation, you save up to 3&afrac12;" of valuable ceiling space in your basement.

With no grout or adhesives, this also makes removing and replacing damaged tiles a breeze! Simply pull out the old tile and replace it with a new one, and your floor is ready to be used!

ThermalDry® Parquet Floor Tiles

Combining ThermalDry® Parquet Floor Tiles with other tiles is a great way to set aside a different area in a finished basement.

Use the quiet, comfortable carpeted tiles in a living room area, and then switch to a parquet or tiled design for a bathroom, kitchen area, or workspace.

No matter which design your choose for your finished space, you can be sure that our warranted ThermalDry® Systems will stay looking great -- even if your basement encounters damp or humid conditions. The three ThermalDry® finished floor systems combine for a warmer, healthier, more beautiful basement space!
