How to Keep Your Basement Floor Warm and Dry

Wednesday, June 20th, 2018 by Jessica Levi


You can see the pegs that help separate the flooring from the cement.

With most basements being made up entirely of cement, it can be difficult to turn them into a warm, inviting environment. Many people make the mistake of putting flooring directly down on the cement. ThermalDry Elite Plank flooring is a floating subfloor solution that allows for air flow between the cement and the flooring. This keeps cold temperature from transferring from the cement to the flooring and into your feet.

This air gap also allows for water to move freely to a drain if you ever have a pipe burst or flooding. Unlike other flooring that absorbs water and eventually molds, ThermalDry Elite Planks allow for easy clean up. The system is designed to lock each plank together, making it simple to remove and reinstall a plank if there is ever an issue that arises.

ThermalDry Elite Planks come in wood, tile, and carpeting with various beautiful color options. The wood planks are our most popular! They have the look of the beautiful hardwood floor of your dreams without the vulnerability of real wood.sorbs water and eventually molds, ThermalDry Elite Planks allow for easy clean up.
