Learn more about our basement flooring system with this educational video.
Typical basement floors are hard, cold concrete. Since concrete is porous, ground moisture continually makes its way through, contributing to the humidity in your basement. When traditional flooring materials like organic carpeting, chipboard, and wood are placed on a concrete basement floor, moisture collects between the flooring and the concrete floor.
Over time that moisture will be absorbed by the materials on top and lead to mold, rot, and musty odors. Other products (ceramic, stone, or marble tile) are grouted to the concrete and are difficult and expensive to repair or replace.
At Ayers Basement Systems, our basement flooring options are all made specifically for concrete basement floors. When installed in your home, our flooring options will never rot, decay or support mold growth. All of our flooring products are designed to easily interlock for quick installation without grout or adhesives. The interlocking flooring is ideal for basements since the flooring can be picked up and reinstalled if water gets underneath. Combined with our other basement products and our basement waterproofing system, it's a great way to upgrade your home!

ThermalDry® Basement Floor Matting is perfect for homeowners who want to install wall-to-wall carpeting in their finished basement. By installing this underneath your carpeting as a subfloor, you protect it from moisture from the concrete below.
Advantages over wood subflooring:
ThermalDry® basement floor tiles are engineered specifically for basement environments. Unlike ceramic basement floor tiles, ThermalDry® basement flooring will never crack or shatter.
Available in Sandstone and Canyon Beige.
Advantages Over Stone, Ceramic, and Marble Tile:
ThermalDry® carpeted floor tiles are designed to keep your basement floor warm and dry. Unlike a long blanket of carpeting, damaged or worn tiles can easily be replaced.

Advantages Over Traditional Carpeting:
ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™ is a unique basement subfloor that combines inorganic, waterproof flooring with insulation for exceptional warmth and water resistance. Like all our other flooring products, ThermalDry® Floor Decking is made from 100% inorganic material to prevent any issues with mold, mildew, rot, and warping due to water.
This system comes with rigid foam insulation, providing an exceptionally warm and comfortable floor in the basement. The thin design also saves an inch of headroom compared to a traditional built-up wood subfloor, which can be very valuable in the basement. Though ThermalDry® Floor Decking is not considered a finished floor, it is easily compatible with all our floor finishing systems.
Pro Comfort Carpeting is an innovative basement carpeting option that is made from completely inorganic materials to ensure a long lasting, waterproof solution.
Advantages over traditional carpeting
The Cruz family used their basement extensively to do laundry, watch sports and as a playroom. Their broken tile floor in the basement was not just an eyesore, but constantly allowed water in. The family decided to not just replace their floor with waterproofed elite plank in dark mocha. Our flooring is inorganic and waterproof, which means no more mold.
Remodeling your basement can be a great way to transform a dark, gloomy space into an area you might actually want to so spend some time in. However, if your basement isn’t a stranger to water, it’s necessary that the products you install on your walls and floors can hold up if they come in contact with water in the future.
These wise homeowners chose to upgrade their wood paneling to ZenWall paneling, which have a thick, encapsulated fiberglass core and a vapor barrier ton the back side which stops water vapor from coming in through the walls. The floors were then covered with ThermalDry, the only inorganic subflooring in the wolrd. The tiles sit on pegs, so water won't get trapped in the flooring, and in the case that there is a leak, it’s easy to dry the water under the tile without removing all of the flooring. ZenWall panels coupled with Thermal Dry make this basement bright, clean and dry.
Mark D's basement floor tiles was unsightly and cold. We installed our Thermal Elite Plank Flooring that mimjics hardwood flooring but they are waterproof!
Basement floors are often made up of wood sub-floors. The problem with wood is if something were to start leaking in your basement, you’re in big trouble. They are easily ruined by water and are the perfect surface for mold growth.
We installed our ThermalDry flooring system, a system made with the only plastic, all inorganic subfloor in the world. It won’t be ruined by water, vapor can’t pass through, and mold won’t grow on it. There are a variety of finishes to choose from so you don’t have to compromise style for functionality.
The customer experienced basement flooding and we helped the family waterproof their semi-finished basement. We installed our complete WaterGuard perimeter drainage system and a TripleSafe sump pump.

They opted for our ThermalDry Elite Plank Flooring system giving this family peace of mind that their nice flooring will not be ruined by water damage.
