As you can see, parts of the paneling were already ripped out due to water damage in the original walls. Dry wall that sits behind there tends to actually support mold and moisture, helping it grow and worsen in your walls.
Here is a fuller view of the most visual aspect of the damages. It's clear that this area was not a livable space!
The customer decided on the ThermalDry Elite Plank flooring for a more elegant and cozy feel. Looks like real wood, doesn't it?
The walls are Total Basement Finishing's Everlast panels, made up of completely inorganic materials. Unlike drywall, this solution is completely waterproof.
Now that's better! No longer a dark, wet hole in a ground, but a cozy family room for football games and holidays. Our ceiling tiles, shown in the picture, are mold resistant and less likely to sag. If they do, you're covered for the next 30 years!
In these older Pittsburgh homes, it's easy to understand that you need all the space you can get. This was nothing new for our customers in Dormont, PA. For years, they have had issues with moisture and water marks on their basement walls, leaving the space uninhabitable. As their family grows, parties and events are getting larger and larger with less space to fit people. They did their research and inevitably decided on Total Basement Finishing by Energy Swing Windows to give them the family room they've always wanted.
