Five Different Ways To Upgrade Basement Floors

At Basement Systems, we're proud to provide five different basement flooring options with a variety of color and texture choices:

  • Waterproof Sub Floors
  • Synthetic Wood Floors
  • Tiled Basement Flooring
  • Carpeted Floor Tiles
  • Waterproof Parquet Tiles

How you finish your floor will define the mood of the new space, and it can easily make or break the ambiance of a room.

Installing a Finished Floor in your Basement

Typical basement floors are hard, cold concrete. Since concrete is porous, ground moisture continually makes its way through, contributing to the humidity in your basement. Other products (ceramic, stone, or marble tile) are grouted to the concrete and are difficult and expensive to repair or replace, cold and hard.

When traditional flooring materials such as organic carpeting, chipboard, and wood are placed on a concrete basement floor, this moisture collects underneath. Over time, it will be absorbed by the materials on top and lead to mold, rot, and musty odors.

Basement Flooring Options

ThermalDry Basement Subfloor Matting

ThermalDry Basement Floor Matting is perfect for homeowners who want to install wall-to-wall carpeting in their finished basement. By installing this underneath your carpeting as a subfloor, you protect it from moisture from the concrete below.

Advantages Over Wood Sub Flooring:

  • 100% waterproof -- creates a vapor barrier on your floor
  • A thermal break underneath causes the surface to be 8-10 ° F warmer than concrete below
  • Compatible with tack strips -- will outlast several generations of carpet

MillCreek Wood Laminate Flooring

MillCreek Flooring uses a patented process that gives the same look, feel and touch as a hardwood floor, all while being suited for basement environments. This synthetic wood floor includes a ten-year limited warranty.

Available in Natural Oak, Rosewood, and Mahogany designs.

Advantages Over Wood Flooring:

  • 100% waterproof- will not rot or buckle when wet
  • Healthy flooring -- contains no formaldehyde and won't support bacteria growth
  • Slim design- 3/16" height.

ThermalDry Basement Floor Tiles

ThermalDry basement floor tiles are engineered specifically for basement environments. Unlike ceramic basement floor tiles, ThermalDry basement flooring will never crack or shatter.

Available in Sandstone and Canyon Beige.

Advantages Over Stone, Ceramic, and Marble Tile:

  • A thermal break underneath causes the surface to be 8-10 ° F warmer than concrete below
  • No grout to maintain & clean
  • Easy to remove, replace, and repair

ThermalDry Carpet Basement Floor Tiles

ThermalDry carpeted floor tiles are designed to keep your basement floor warm and dry. Unlike a long blanket of carpeting, damaged or worn tiles can easily be replaced.

Available in Charcoal and Mocha designs.

Advantages Over Traditional Carpeting:

  • Waterproof design will not support mold, mildew, odors, or rot
  • Floating floor does not glue or adhere to basement floor
  • Unique tiled design installs with no need for a sub floor

ThermalDry Parquet Basement Floor Tiles

ThermalDry parquet floor tiles provide the beauty of parquet flooring with all-inorganic materials. Enjoy the beauty of a parquet wood floor while resting assured that your floor is safe from moisture and humidity.
