Finish & customize your basement with one system

Basement finishing challenges:

  • Building around obstacles such as staircases, support columns, and windows
  • Working around utilities such as furnaces and water heaters
  • Ceilings that are low or have pipes and ductwork
  • Creating a well-lit, beautiful environment
  • Uneven or stone walls

The TBF system is made to perfectly fit your basement environment. It's versatile enough to work with any design idea you have in mind for the space - from a family room, to a home gym, to a wine cellar and more.

Your basement is a unique environment, with challenges that do not appear anywhere else in the home. Obstacles such as low ceilings, utilities, and dampness are exactly what the TBF system is designed to handle.

We can overcome any challenge! Our free-standing basement wall panels make excellent wall partitions for building rooms in your basement and partitioning off a space for storage. High quality ceiling tiles can box out ducts and pipes, with each tile providing an access point for servicemen. We can build in basements of all types, even if your walls are made of stone or are not straight. Call us today to get a free estimate on how to customize your finished basement.

Before and After
  • Waterproofing & Finishing in Moldy Wayzata Basement
    Waterproofing & Finishing in Moldy Wayzata Basement

    A couple from Wayzata, MN called DBS with a water problem in their basement. They had lived in their home for 20+ years, and they had noticed the mildew scent and mold problem growing in their basement. The water damage had moved to their flooring and they needed to fix the damage as soon as possible. DBS sent our Design Specialist, Henrick Makitalo, to the home, their solution was our SaniDry dehumidifier and basement waterproofing system. After installation of our SaniDry, the mold problem was resolved and DBS could move forward to work on redoing the floor areas that had water damage.

    Our customer was very satisfied with our work, he said that the DBS team had very hard workers and he was proud to say that we were problem-solvers with great solutions. We worked directly with him to hear his opinions along the way, tell him about the benefits of our services, and ensure his house turned out the way he wanted. He even liked the SaniDry dehumidifier so much, he purchased another one for his cabin!

Timeless Design


Drop ceilings provide a unique opportunity to blend many types of lighting options in a single basement.

They're compatible with lighting of all types, including fluorescent lighting, task lighting, pendant lights, and suspended lighting.

Our walls are solid enough to easily support the weight of mounted light fixtures, while our basement windows and window wells are designed to maximize natural light.

Our basement walls are designed with an appealing beige and off-white blend. These are two colors that will never go out of style.

The vinyl surface of the wall is very durable and easy to wash. Even stains from marker, pen, and paint are easily washed off.

The distinct pattern of our wall panels helps to hide small holes from nails and tacks after being patched with a bit of putty or even toothpaste!

With many different finished floor designs, we have a waterproof flooring option for every style finished space.

If our wood, tiled, and carpeted designs are not what you had in mind, we can also provide waterproof basement sub flooring, so you can install a custom carpeting.

Additionally, we have a wide variety of crown molding designs, ceiling tiles, and basement wall designs that we'd like to discuss with you.

Drywall, organic materials, and fiberglass-based products are simply not up to the job in a finished basement. The basement wall panels, ceiling tiles and flooring we install are created with waterproof materials that are built to last, without absorbing moisture. Call us today to receive a free estimate!
