How Common Basement Finishing Products Measure Up

Gypsum Drywall Facts:

Gypsum used for drywall is taken from shallow, open-pit mines. It creates 25% of the debris in construction. 17% of drywall is wasted during installation, and none of it is cost-effective to recycle.

With landfills filling up with drywall and more shallow gypsum mines eliminating swaths of wildlife, we know that drywall is far from a green remodeling material. In landfills, drywall adds toxic sulfate to the water and emits a rotten egg smell. In your basement, damp drywall will also support mold growth as it rots in the humid environment, contributing to home allergens.

Specialized materials such as fiberglass insulation, according to Denver AIA committee on the environment, are not readily recyclable, nor are they in high enough demand to be cost-effective when produced widely. And while fiberglass is inorganic, the dyes, paper backings, and resin used in their design can easily grow mold when subjected to basement humidity.

It's becoming increasingly clear that there has to be better products for basement remodeling-- and those products are the Total Basement Finishing System.

TBF Wall Panels

EverLast™ Basement Walls include 2 1/2 inches of R-13 closed-cell insulation, saving you up to $400/year on your heating and cooling bills.

Made with HCFC blowing agents, EverLast™ Wall Panel's closed-cell polystyrene insulation is 94% less ozone-depleting than standard CFC blowing agents used in other products. This insulation may be reused for various applications.

The 1/2" hard-panel wallboard consists of 95% certified recycled materials. Together, the insulation and wallboard combine to produce a far greener alternative to hard-to-recycle drywall and fiberglass products used in other basement finishing systems.

MillCreek Flooring™

All plastic compounds used to create MillCreek laminate flooring have been created with post-consumer products, and their plastic is fully recyclable. It has been tested to have a ozone layer destroying index of 0.

It contains no lead, cadmium, mercury, or formaldehyde in its design. And its waterproof design will never promote rot or mold growth.

MillCreek flooring should outlast several generations of wood basement flooring, saving many generations of wood floor waste from production.

ThermalDry® Tiled Flooring

All plastic compounds used to create ThermalDry® tiled flooring and sub floor matting are created with post-consumer products, and their plastic compounds are fully recyclable.

Installing ThermalDry® floor matting eliminates the need for several generations of wood sub flooring, as it should last many times longer.

Installing ThermalDry® also creates a thermal break on your basement floor, making the surface 8-10 degrees warmer than the cold concrete below.

TBF Drop Ceiling Tiles

TBF Drop Ceiling Tiles create an environmentally friendly alternative to drywall ceiling options-- no known adverse effects on the ecology are known. Unlike traditional tiles that grow mold and sag in the middle, our ceiling tiles have a 30-year no-sag no-mold written warranty.

Drop Ceilings are ideal for the full range of energy-efficient lighting, including fluorescent lighting, halogen lights, LED lighting, and other options.

Our dropped ceilings are installed on a recyclable metal framing in your home that will stay strong for decades to come.

SaniDry™ XP Basement Dehumidifier

This SaniDry™ XP is an ENERGY STAR® rated basement dehumidifier. Capable of removing 110 pints of water from a basement each day, it's three times more efficient than well-known hardware store models.

The SaniDry™ includes an air filtration system that filters particles out as small as 2 microns, keeping your space healthy and clean. An automatic digital on/off feature allows you to set it and forget it.

This basement dehumidifier is powerful enough for ductwork, allowing you to install it in a closet or utility area, where it ducts dry air into your finished space.

EverLast™ Basement Windows

EverLast™ Basement Windows feature an all-vinyl design that will never corrode, need paint, rot, or support mold growth. Their sleek design helps to eliminate energy-wasting drafts often associated with other designs.

These windows have an insulative R-rating of 2.94, making them more than 30% more energy efficient than traditional single-paned, steel-framed basement windows.

Two panes of Low-E glass help to promote solar gain in the winter and limit it in the summer, keeping your basement warm during cold months, and cooler during the summer.
