Basement Finishing Case Studies: Beautiful Finished Basement in Ontario, NY

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018 by Ann Krueger


The homeowner was looking at having their basement finished for the family to enjoy. In the basement, they were also wanting a separate space that they could designate as a home office.


One of our Estimator’s, Anthony, visited the homeowners at their home. He talked with them about their existing basement, their needs, and their concerns. The homeowners and Anthony worked together for almost a year getting everything just right for their family. One of the things that remained on top of their minds during that year was water. The homeowner knew that because of where the house was located the basement was susceptible to water. After referring the homeowners to a trusted company to assess their waterproofing needs the homeowner returned to Anthony ready to being planning the basement. To address the concerns of investing so much money into the basement and the possibility of water getting into space, Anthony offered the Total Basement Finishing System (TBF). With the TBF basement system, the homeowners can be assured in their investment because the Everlast wall panels and ThermalDry floor tiles are waterproof. The Prestige ceiling tiles are mold and water resistant. The ThermalDry floor tiles were the perfect option because it was important to keep the room stylish and comfortable but also protected from water. ThermalDry carpet tiles in a 'mocha' color were installed in one section of the basement. Millcreek waterproof flooring gave the other room a wood plank feel with none of the wood’s problems. The 'mahogany' color in the “wood” really brought a welcoming look and feel. Because a livable space needs to have egress a window well was dug, a new opening was created and a fully operational window was installed to help ensure the safety of the family. Now this family has a beautiful open space that they can use for everyday living with a piece of mind that comes with the TBF 50-year warranty.
