Renovating Your Basement with the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™
When you invest in the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ in your home, you can begin to enjoy your newly remodeled basement in even less time than you ever imagined. That’s because the entire basement remodel can usually be completed by trained and certified installers in only about two weeks – much less time than would normally be associated with major home renovations. Plus, since this installation is extremely clean and virtually dust-free, you won’t have to worry about spending weeks and months trying to get your home looking back to normal.
Yet, the expedient installation process is far from the only advantage to the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™. This unique basement remodel also comes with numerous built-in features and benefits that distinguish it from many of the traditional basement finishing methods on the market that aren’t particularly well-suited for the basement. For instance, the Basement Finishing System™ is made entirely of breathable materials, which don’t contain a food source for mold and mildew and thus don’t support mold and mildew growth*. The basement walls of the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ also include:
- Acoustic insulation – This insulation is particularly beneficial because it absorbs sound coming from a game room or home theater and can even help improve the overall acoustics of the basement itself.
- Thermal insulation – A built-in layer of thermal insulation helps keep the basement comfortable for year round use and may even lead to cost savings in monthly heating and cooling bills**.
The basement is also uniquely designed in that basement walls and trim can be easily removed and replaced if the need be. For example, should a situation arise where you need to gain emergency access to your home’s foundation, plumbing infrastructure, or electrical wiring, you can simply remove the wall that’s in the way. Once the repairs are complete, all that’s left to do is put the wall back into place. The removable trim, on the other hand, makes it easy to hide wiring from the electronics in a home office or game room.
All that said, these features only represent a handful of the various benefits associated with the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™. To learn more about how this basement finishing method will work in your home, contact us today.
*While the materials and design of the Owens Corning™ Basement Finishing System™ resist mold and mildew, the system cannot prevent or mitigate mold if the conditions necessary for mold growth otherwise exist in your basement.
