ZenWall™ Insulated Wall Panels
ZenWall™ insulated panels are the best way to make an unfinished basement look its best. These basement wall panels include a reflective backing, insulated core, and an attractive vinyl facing. The washable surface includes an off-white and beige pattern for timeless appeal.
If you have damp basement walls, ZenWall™ can easily tie into your perimeter drain to direct water from the walls straight into your waterproofing system. If you have a finished basement, ZenWall™ is also a great way to dress up a utility room or storage area.
BrightWall® Basement Wall Panels
BrightWall® is a rigid plastic sheeting that's attached to your basement wall by drilled-in plastic fasteners. Its bright white color maximizes the available light in your basement, creating a cheerful, clean-looking space.
BrightWall® is 100% waterproof and washable, and it creates a vapor barrier on your basement walls to block out water vapor and humidity. This ensures that you won't have to worry about mold growth or rot. Like our other wall products, it can direct water seepage into your perimeter drain.
ThermalDry® Wall Radiant Barrier
ThermalDry® Radiant Barrier creates a waterproof radiant heat barrier on your basement walls. Its reflective surface is designed to keep heat inside your basement where it belongs -- up to 97% of the heat that reaches it will be reflected back into your home.
ThermalDry® Wall also serves as a vapor barrier on your basement walls. Water seepage passing through the porous concrete of your foundation walls will be directed into your perimeter drain and away from your finished space.
CleanSpace® Wall Vapor Barrier
If you're interested in an easy way to upgrade your basement walls, there's nothing quite like the CleanSpace® Wall System. Like our other wall systems, it can hold back water vapor passing through your foundation walls, directing it to your sump pump. With anti-microbial protection called UltraFresh built right in, no mold or mildew will grow on the CleanSpace!
If you have stone walls, an exposed ledge in your basement, or dirt floors, CleanSpace® is the perfect solution! With its 25-year warranty from rips or tears, you can be sure it's strong enough to do the job!
EverLast™ Finished Wall Restoration System
If your basement has been finished with drywall, it could be seriously damaged during a flood. Once drywall is damaged by water, mold is not far behind. However, in many cases it's only the bottom of the walls that needs replacing.
We can repair your damaged basement walls permanently with our Everlast™ Finished Wall Restoration System. This system works great with our other products, including our drainage system and basement flooring. These panels also add insulation to the basement, creating a warmer, more comfortable space. The washable surface looks great for years to come and includes a 50-year Warranty (contact us for full details). What could be better than that?
Basement To Beautiful™ Insulated Wall Panels
Our insulated basement wall product is a fantastic way to get your basement ready for your own custom wall paneling. Designed with our unique, advanced SilverGlo™ insulation, these walls meet and exceed building codes for insulation quality. SilverGlo™ is an innovative, closed-cell, graphite-infused insulation that's designed to be 24% more energy efficient than competing foam paneling. This gives it an industry-leading R-13 insulation -- one that will not rot or soak up water.
The unique design of Basement To Beautiful™ panels separates the panels from your cold, concrete walls with metal studs, avoiding "cold spots" on your basement walls that would otherwise be caused by thermal convection.
Before and After
Jackson, MI Basement Finished with EverLast and ThermalDry
These Jackson, MI homeowners initially contacted us to repair several cracks in their foundation walls. After fixing this issue with our FlexiSpan crack repair system, we returned to the home to assist them in finishing their basement. Our basement finishing team upgraded the outdated wood paneling and carpet with new, sturdy EverLast cement board wall panels and ThermalDry tile.

Bowing Wall in Williamston, MI
The homeowners in Williamston, MI were noticing that one of their walls in their basment had horizontal cracks near the top of the wall and was starting to bow. Horizontal cracks are one of the first signs of a bowing wall. The cracks need to be fixed right away because they start out small, but they will increase in width over time as the soil outisde continues to put pressure on the wall.
To fix the bowing wall out professional team installed the GeoLock Wall Anchor system. Galvanized steel earth anchors are embedded into the soil out away from the foundation wall. Steel wall plates are installed inside the home on the problem wall. The earth anchors and steel plates are then connected together by galvanized steel rods. Once installed, wall anchors will hold walls in their current position without any further adjustment. They can be tightened during dry periods allowing for improvement and straightening of the wall over time.
The GeoLock wall anchor system stops the homeowners wall from bowing and allows the wall to be straightened over time.
Basement Walls Enhanced with Brightwall Paneling in Parma, MI
We all know doing laundry isn’t the most enjoyable experience, but it’s probably a lot less unpleasant if you have to do it in a basement like this one. The mortar around the cinderblock walls is crumbling, letting moisture into the basement. While the owners have a sump pump, there’s no way for the water from the leaky walls to enter it; that’s where WaterGuard comes in.
Our team installed WaterGuard, a drainage system that’s laid on top of the footing around the perimeter of the basement. This piping collects water from the leaky walls and reroutes it to the sump pump, where it’s then forced out of the basement through a discharge line.
To improve the overall look of the walls, we also installed BrightWall paneling. These plastic panels fastened to the wall brighten the space, while still allowing water from the walls behind it to drain to the WaterGuard system. These panels prevent water vapor from coming through the walls and evaporating the basement, too.
WaterGuard helps eliminate the water from the leaky walls in this basement, while Brightwall paneling dramatically enhances the space. We won’t promise the homeowners that doing their laundry will be fun, but we hope it will be a lot more bearable when it’s done in this bright, dry basement.
BrightWall Protects Basement Block Walls in Mason, MI
The block wall in the before photo had been leaking into the home quite a bit. The space between the blocks created easy access for groundwater to break through. You can even see where the water had stained the wall on its way down. Our fix in the after photo is the BrightWall system. The white panels of BrightWall are a moisture barrier system that keeps water out of view in the basement. As water leaks in through the block wall, it will be escorted down the wall and into a drainage system that sits in the foot and wall joint. The perimeter drainage system WaterGuard sits under the footing of the ground and will carry the water out to be discharged. As a system, BrightWall will solve the leaking problems that this basement has been dealing with for a long time.
WaterGuard Saves Leaky Walls In Mason, MI

Now these Mason residents can have peace of mind knowing that WaterGuard has got their leaky walls handled.
