If you are looking to finish your basement, heed this piece of advice - skip the drywall. The conditions in your basement are unlike the rest of your home. Be it seasonal leaking, or the occasional plumbing issue, water often winds up in our basement. In these scenarios, drywall doesn’t stand a chance! That’s why DBS installs award-winning EverLast™ wall panels in customer homes. Made from inorganic materials, these panels are water-resistant, weight-bearing, insulating… and they are good looking, too!
The conversation about why EverLast™ panels are the right choice for your basement often starts with why drywall is not. The primary reason is that drywall has a gypsum core and paper exterior; materials that when exposed to moisture in a wet basement environment promote mold and mildew growth. Broken, moldy, and damaged drywall will need to be removed and replaced.
In contrast, Total Basement Finishing's EverLast™ Wall Panels are made with a solid solution of 2 1/2" thick SilverGlo™ rigid foam insulation and 1/2" thick cement board cladding, holding up to 300 pounds. This allows homeowners to mount objects anywhere they want, with no need to locate a stud. If you do ever encounter a moisture issue in your basement, these panels are designed to be removed and put back into place once the issue is resolved.
Don’t become a victim of the "Black Mold Blues" by using vulnerable materials to finish your basement. Imagine a smarter solution with DBS and finish your basement just once.
