New Moisture Control Basement Finishing Materials Bring An End To Wet Basements

Finished basements are proving to be more and more important to a home's value and desirability to potential homeowners, and with advanced products, Lake Side Total Basement finishing is showing homeowners what flawless finishing looks like.

Oconomowoc, WI - Advancements in basement finishing and moisture control products that help enhance a basement's comfort and value, are encouraging homeowners to make this one-time lasting investment to finish their home's basement and prevent future problems.

Basement remodeling is proving to be critical to a home's value, which is why Scot Buckley, president of Lake Side Total Basement Finishing in Oconomowoc believes in using the right products to do the job right the first time. According to Remodeling Online Magazine, a 600 sq ft finished basement currently adds value to a house equal to about 75% of the cost of the job, and is continuing to rise.

Buckley contends that combining beauty with moisture controls is what differentiates Lake Side's materials from the rest. Lake Side's basement finishing materials will never get moldy or rot, cannot be damaged by moisture, and are highly dent resistant and even carry a 50-Year transferable warranty.

"One of the real advantages of these new remodeling materials is that your vision for an eye-pleasing, functional room that compliments any decor can become a reality in as little as two weeks. You'll find a dry, comfortable environment for Family Rooms; Home Theaters; Private Office; Workout Room; Game Room; Children's Play Room; or even a Guest Suite," says Buckley.

EverLast Basement Wall Panels is one of Lake Side's new moisture control products. These cement wall panels prevent mold growth with maximum moisture protection, and have won the CQIA Quality and Innovation Award. They are an off-white vinyl surface treatment made from 2 1/2 inch-thick rigid foam insulation with 1/2 inch-thick cement board cladding.

ThermalDry basement floor tiles are engineered by MillCreek Flooring to keep your basement environment free of mold and mildew, and are moisture resistant. MillCreek Flooring uses a patented process to give its tiles the same look, feel and touch as a hardwood floor; all while being suited for basement environments. They also provide Total Basement Finishing ceiling tiles that are non-sagging and mold resistant.
