Before and After
  • Waterproofing A Basement with CleanSpace in Marshfield, Wisconsin
    Waterproofing A Basement with CleanSpace in Marshfield, Wisconsin

    The basement under this Marshfield, WI home had developed cracks along the walls which were allowing significant amounts of water to pass through into the basement which led to standing water and moisture causing issues for the homeowner. In order to fulfill the wishes of our customer to create a water-free space in his basement our Specialist, Rich met up with the customer to develop a plan customized to this specific basement. By working with the customer Rich helped develop a waterproofing plan that incorporated our CleanSpace wall liner, SuperSump sump pump, and an interior drain tile to effectively eliminate the water issues this homeowner was facing in this area of their basement. Captured in these photos is the large oil tank that sat in the basement. While obstacles like this can limit access to the basement walls, we certainly don't let that get in our way of effectively waterproofing a basement. Our production crews know just how to work through or around all types of obstacles like this including finished bathrooms and large appliances.

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.

Timeless Design


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

They're compatible with the 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 markers, pens, 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 of finished space.

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

Call today to start your basement finishing project

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!
