Quality Basement Walls

EverLast Walls

The walls in your basement can look just as nice as the walls in your first and second floor; they just need to be handled properly. The normal process of just putting up studs and sheetrock works great everywhere in your house except your basement. 

Your Basement Walls Need Special Coverings

The reason for this is that there is moisture that can travel through your walls from the hydrostatic pressure that builds up in the soil surrounding your home and foundation. This moisture can then be trapped between your foundation wall and your Sheetrock wall. The danger in this is that when sheetrock gets wet, it will potentially grow mold. This does not mean that you can never safely put up finished walls in a basement; you will just need an extra layer of protection, a vapor barrier, for your basement walls. 

The BEST Wall Covering Options

There are a few different vapor barrier options for your walls, depending on the outcome you prefer. BrightWall is a non-organic vapor barrier that has vapor barrier protection and will give your basement a finished look with a nice, clean white finish. The non-organic materials can be easily wiped down and will never grow mold! ThermalDry walling is best used when you want to finish your basement with sheetrock. ThermalDry acts as a vapor barrier and a reflective insulation barrier for your finished wall, keeping the sheetrock dry and the basement warm. Another option for your home is the EverLast wall panels, which is a durable and waterproof wall. The EverLast wall combines the BrightWall finished wall look with the ThermalDry wall insulation system to offer the best of both worlds.
