Basement Systems of West Virginia Case Studies: Basement Finishing in Grafton, WV

Thursday, May 8th, 2014 by Randy Shillingburg


Sabreena and Justin W. of Grafton, WV, wanted to add a new bedroom, bathroom and living room to their home in a quick, cost-efficient manner.  Their home, with main floor joists located over nine feet high in the basement, provided them with the opportunity to finish their basement with a drop ceiling height of at least eight feet.  However, simply finishing their basement with 2 X 4 studs and drywall could have resulted in a musty-smelling living space as moisture penetrated their living space from the foundation walls and concrete floor. They turned to Basement Systems of West Virginia for a solution.


Basement Systems of West Virginia first eliminated any potential moisture and dampness in the basement, installing a waterproofing system that gives the family peace of mind.  The foundation walls were covered with CleanSpace encapsulation material, and a system was installed to remove any water or moisture that might appear from the sidewalls and floors -- or even if a leak should occur in one of the pipes above! Next, Basement Systems of West Virginia installed beautiful insulated wall panels on their basement walls with an R-14 value. The EverLast Wall System panels that were installed at the home are resistant to water, mold, termites and even fire!

The result of this work is a living space that is beautiful, comfortable and very energy efficient.  The space also does not have the normal musty smell found in most basements.  The space is warm and inviting, just like the rest of their home.
