A Fantastic Flooring Option for Basements

Basement Flooring Best Options Ontario Advanced Basement SystemsWhether finishing your basement for the first time, renovating or replacing flooring after a flood, we have a fantastic flooring option for your consideration. 

Many homeowners desire a wood flooring appearance in their homes, but wood doesn’t work well in basements due to their naturally damp environment. 

Why are basements naturally damp environments? 

Concrete is a porous material and even the newest of homes can leak! Foundation movement, settlement cracks and plumbing malfunctions can allow water to enter and damage your basement. 

When our customers ask about the best flooring option for their recently waterproofed basement, we proudly offer our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring system.

Here are four benefits of our patented flooring system:

  1. Our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring is waterproof and inorganic, therefore it isn’t affected by moisture in your basement. Unlike other materials commonly used when finishing a basement, mould or mildew will never grow on this floor. It will also never warp, rot or become damaged by water. 

  2. By its design, our ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring system creates a thermal break between the concrete slab below, which improves energy efficiency. 

  3. This flooring works perfectly with our basement waterproofing system, ensuring all of your basement stays dry, all of the time!

  4. Beautiful appearance! While the inorganic features of this product are compelling, the real appeal is in the looks! It has a warm, natural wood appearance.
