renovation tips to help get the look you’re looking for.
Traditional basement construction using stud frame walls, styrofoam insulation, as well as vapor barriers, is not an ideal way to complete an unfinished basement. The vapor of water in humid environments may cause the growth of mold and mildew. Condensation could build up under carpets laid on concrete floors.
Instead of traditional approaches today, it’s possible for engineers to develop solutions that resolve the major issues with basement moisture.
In order to prevent condensation Engineered Subfloor Systems make use of 2×2 interlocking plywood tiles that are laid over the plastic.
Foam walls are made out of polystyrene expanded and drywall foam. Foam wall panels are placed on top of the subfloor the top. They can be fitted with an opening within the walls that is behind and ahead of the wall. This allows air to move through the wall that prevents water vapor getting trapped.
Engineered subfloors offer a significant improvement over traditional methods of finishing basements. 62bkppjuvi.
