Quality 1st Basements Case Studies: Finished Basement Flooring in Freehold, NJ

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014 by Cassandra Santiago


A Freehold homeowner wanted to finish his basement in order to create a functional space. However, the basement was incredibly humid, which was anything but inviting. Despite his use of a humidifier, this homeowner could not get rid of the dampness. He had painted the walls in an attempt to brighten up the space, but needed to do something about the drab floor.


Fortunately, Quality 1st Basement Systems knew how to fix these basement issues! The crew installed ThermalDry Floor Matting to cover the old, exposed basement floor. ThermalDry is made up of modular floor tiles that snap together. These come in carpet or tile finishes, and variety of colors. Each ThermalDry tile has raised pegs underneath that create space, which prevents cold air as well as water from seeping through. Thus, the use of this flooring will help keep tempered air in the basement and reduce utility bills.

The Quality 1st Basement Systems team also installed a SaniDry Air System to rid the basement of any residual humidity. The SaniDry works as both a dehumidifier and air filtration system. This draws moisture out of the air while filtering for particles, leaving basement air dry and clean. The homeowner was thrilled by the results. His fully finished basement was finally a cozy space that he could use for whatever he liked!
