BrightWall® Waterproof Panels

Our BrightWall® Panels are rigid plastic panels that mechanically attach to your basement walls.

Their bright white color keeps your basement looking great, while providing a vapor barrier on your basement walls to hold back humidity and moisture from the concrete walls.

If you've had one of our perimeter drain systems installed, such as the WaterGuard® system, our BrightWall® panels can be integrated with it by tucking the bottom of the wall behind the wall flange of the drain.

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

ZenWall™ Basement Wall Upgrades

ZenWall™ can be tucked into our perimeter drain systems, directing water behind the wall system to your sump pump. ZenWall™ will also provide a vapor barrier on the surfaces, holding back humidity and water vapor that would otherwise enter your home.

The insulated core of ZenWall™ will help to keep your basement warmer and more comfortable -- up to ten degrees warmer than the cold concrete it covers!

CleanSpace® Wall Vapor Barrier

The CleanSpace® Wall System is a pliable plastic vapor barrier that can be laid over irregularly shaped surfaces, such as wavy basement walls, large boulders, and even on dirt basement floors. Designed with seven durable layers, it includes a 25-year warranty.

CleanSpace® Wall includes an inorganic design and an antimicrobial additive that will not support mold or bacterial growth. Its bright white appearance keeps your basement looking clean, bright, and attractive, while also providing a vapor barrier on your walls. Like our other products, CleanSpace® Wall can be tucked into your basement drains to direct water from the walls into your waterproofing system.

Basement To Beautiful™ Panels

Installed as both an insular wall and stud system, your walls will be prepared to receive wallboard directly on top of the panels.

SilverGlo™ is designed with 2.5" of graphite-infused foam R-13 insulation, providing 24% more energy savings than the alternative, while also providing a vapor barrier on your concrete walls.

SilverGlo™ insulation is completely inorganic, and will not support the growth of mold or rot. Its closed-cell design will not be damaged by moisture.

ThermalDry® Wall Covering

Along with insulating your basement walls, it's a great idea to install a radiant heat barrier. This reflects heat that reaches your walls back into your basement, which leads to savings on your utility bills.

ThermalDry® Wall combines radiant heat barrier technology with a durable vapor barrier. The radiant heat barrier keeps your basement warm and comfortable, while the vapor barrier holds back moisture and humidity.

This system can be also integrated with your basement drain -- any water and moisture collected from the walls is directed down the vapor barrier and into your perimeter drainage system.

ZenWall™ Wall Coverings

Even if you're not planning on using your basement as finished space, it's a great idea to upgrade the walls for a warmer, more comfortable space.

The fiberglass core of ZenWall™ provides a layer of insulation on your basement walls, making them 8-10 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than the cold concrete behind them.

ZenWall™ is a fantastic way to bring beauty and warmth to your basement without the high cost and inconvenience of basement finishing. And because it's considered a wall upgrade and not a finishing system, it can be used in basements that would not be code-compliant to finish.

EverLast™ Finished Wall Repair

When basements flood, drywall will stain and lose its structural integrity, and fiberglass can soak up water like a sponge. Over time, these two materials, along with wood studs, will begin to grow mold, mildew and rot.

In most cases, only the first couple feet of wallboard, insulation, and studs are damaged. This is where the EverLast™ Wall Restoration System comes in.

Our drywall repair system includes metal studs and a waterproof cementitious wallboard, both of which can hold up to potential basement flooding in the future. A stylish chair rail runs along the top, combining for an attractive, permanent repair option.

Basement To Beautiful™ Waterproof Insulation

If your finished basement has been severely damaged by flooding water in the past, then you're probably aware of just how much damage a flood deals to fiberglass insulation.

Our Basement To Beautiful™ Insulated Panels provide a permanent solution to insulating your basement walls -- one that will not be ruined by flooding.

These panels are made with rigid, closed-cell foam insulation that will not be damaged by humidity or moisture. Metal studs are built directly in to each panel to support the wallboard, with 2" of R-13 insulation between the metal frame and the concrete.

The ThermalDry® Waterproof Basement Wall System

Over time, many basements walls develop cracks and openings that begin to leak. Additionally, concrete surfaces continually bring moisture from the earth into your home -- even when the concrete surface does not look damp.

Installing our ThermalDry® Wall product before finishing the space will protect your walls from being damaged by humidity and moisture from leaking basement walls. Water leaking from the walls and down your perimeter drain.

ThermalDry® Wall also creates a radiant heat barrier on your basement walls. This will reflect heat back into your basement for significant energy savings.
