ThermalDry® Basement Wall System is part of a likely pair of products for folks in Minnesota or northern Iowa who are finishing their basements. The basement wall systems, a plastic vapor barrier with bubbles on one side that act as thermal breaks and spacers to allow for drainage, stops water vapor from getting into your basement through the walls and drains water from any wall leak down behind it to the perimeter basement waterproofing drainage system (WaterGuard®). Built up water creates an environment where mold and odors can develop and grow.
BrightWall® basement wall panels are a semi-rigid white plastic panel system installed on the basement wall to drain water, stop water vapor, and brighten your basement space! Secured with drilled-in white fasteners, the basement wall panels will never come off of your walls, unlike basement wall paint, no matter how much dampness comes through.
If your basement walls leak water, the BrightWall® basement wall paneling will drain any water leaks down behind it to the perimeter drainage system (WaterGuard®) -- without you ever knowing it. The basement wall panel also stops water vapor from coming through the walls and evaporating into your basement.
Most of all BrightWall® provides a clean, bright, semi-finished look that really dresses up your unfinished basement! The bright white wall panel looks great and makes the basement much brighter with the available lighting. We do not recommend painting BrightWall basement wall panels.
It is the best looking and most durable of the three wall system options. If your basement will remain unfinished, and you want the nicest look possible, this is the system for you.
ZenWall®is the simplest way to create a dry, clean, finished look on your basement walls! Now there is a way to make your basement walls dry and get a clean finished look in one easy step: the revolutionary ZenWall® Basement Paneling System. A basement waterproofing drainage system keeps the basement floor dry - but it doesn't do anything to make basement walls dry or look better.
The revolutionary new ZenWall® Basement Paneling System is the answer. ZenWall® is a ¼" thick encapsulated fiberglass core with a reflective foil vapor barrier on the back side and a decorative vinyl finish on the front side. It can be used with a perimeter basement waterproofing systems to waterproof a basement wall and stop water vapor from coming through the wall into the basement air.
The finish on ZenWall® looks great - as great as you can get without doing a full basement finishing project - and is a fraction of the price. It makes a huge difference in what your basement looks like and how you feel like when you're in your basement.
Paint and coatings will flake and fall off. Wood can rot and grown mold. Both treatments are not suitable for basement environments. Cold, damp, concrete walls, moldy drywall or chipping paint is not what you want in your basement!
ZenWall® comes in 2 ½ foot by 8 foot panels. All fasteners are hidden with the specially designed trim pieces. We use foil as a vapor barrier because it gives the added benefit of a radiant barrier, and therefore some resistance of heat flow through the panel one way or the other. While the colors and pattern and texture of the ZenWall® vinyl finish hide dirt and marks, the panels are also washable, so keeping them clean is not a problem.
ZenWall® can make up to a 10 degree difference in the surface temperature of the wall, adding comfort and saving energy. Aside from all of these benefits, ZenWall® panels can be installed in any basement to make your walls look great!
This is a basement wall solution for leaky stone wall basements
We use CleanSpace®, a durable liner - like a pool liner, for lining dirt crawl spaces. It is perfect as a basement wall solution for stone walls basement. Because stone walls are not flat, they are not candidates for BrightWall® paneling. The CleanSpace® provides a vapor barrier, drains water behind it and dramatically brightens the basement. It will have waves in it because it comes off of a roll rather than in panels, but the CleanSpace® is very durable and nearly impossible to rip.
