Watch this video to see how your basement can benefit from this revolutionary insulated subflooring system.
It’s happened in thousands of basements: Homeowners pay good money to have attractive flooring installed, only to see this investment ruined by mold and moisture damage. The fact is that building materials (like framing lumber and plywood subflooring) that work well on the upper levels of your house can fail miserably in the basement. Plumbing leaks, spills, high humidity and dampness from your concrete slab can all result in moisture damage and a mold infestation.
Wouldn’t it be great to install basement flooring that’s immune to mold and moisture damage? It would also be great if your floor could be comfortably warm instead of cold. ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™ is designed to provide both of these important benefits.
Fortress Foundation Solutions installs ThermalDry® insulated subflooring, as well as a variety of finished flooring options for the basement. Contact us for a free basement flooring estimate, offered to customers in Frederick, Bethesda, Lynchburg and surrounding Virginia & Maryland areas.
Do it once, do it right. ThermalDry® Floor Decking is the best subfloor system available for use in basements and over other concrete slabs.
Carpet is a common flooring choice in basements everywhere. However, the basement environment can lead to several problems for carpet, including water damage and mold. If you want to install carpet in your basement, it's essential to protect your investment.
Fortress Foundation Solutions provides a waterproof subfloor system for basement floors to protect against water and mold damage. Our ThermalDry® floor matting will ensure that you have the necessary vapor barrier while also providing a warmer surface. If you want to install a waterproof subfloor in your home in Central Virginia & Maryland, call us today for a free quote!
ThermalDry® Basement Floor Matting consists of interlocking waterproof tiles that create a warmer floor surface and form a vapor barrier on your basement floor.
By installing this system underneath your basement carpet, you protect it from the constant flow of water vapor that passes through the concrete below. This moisture would otherwise be absorbed by your carpeting and padding, leading to mold, rot, odors, and damp carpeting underfoot!
ThermalDry® Basement Floor Matting installs on a basement floor quickly -- most often in less than a day -- without grouts or adhesives. You'll be able to walk on this floor or begin the installation of your carpeting right away! Each ThermalDry® installation includes a written warranty.
ThermalDry® Basement Floor Matting not only protects your carpet from moisture damage, it also makes your basement floor a warmer, more comfortable surface. With a special grid pattern on the bottom of the tile, an air space is created below each tile. This air space creates a thermal break on your basement floor, making the surface of ThermalDry® Basement Floor Matting 8-10 degrees warmer than the cold concrete below.
ThermalDry® Basement Floor Matting is a unique waterproofing product because it contains no chipboard, wood, or organic materials in its design. Additionally, it creates a vapor barrier on your basement floor -- one that will not let damaging water vapor pass through and reach your carpet -- so the water vapor has an air space to move around and dry out. Water from surprise groundwater leaks or plumbing leaks will not damage this basement floor.
Especially in a basement, the secret to a beautiful, long-lasting floor is the quality and durability of the subfloor that is installed. ThermalDry® Floor Decking achieves what other subfloor treatments can’t, providing a continuous layer of waterproof foam insulation that keeps your floor surface comfortable. Bonded to the rigid foam is a flat composite board that won’t attract mold and can’t be damaged by moisture. The composite board makes an excellent substrate for the finished basement flooring of your choice.
If you're investing in basement carpeting, be sure to protect your new floor with our waterproof subflooring. Without installing a waterproofing system, your floor will be exposed to water damage and mold.
