Learning about the TBF System -Special products designed just for basements look better and last longer than standard "off the shelf" materials

Our TBF System are high quality wall, floor, and ceiling products that will leave your basement beautiful.

In the event of a water leak or even your basement flooding, your waterproof TBF system will survive. As will the wall insulation, moldings and column wraps.

Most remodeling contractors have to rely on standard “off-the-shelf” building materials when they are hired to finish a basement. But materials that perform well above-grade (wood studs, paper-faced gypsum board, plywood floor sheathing) don’t do well in basements where moisture levels are higher.

We know this is true because our crews have removed many dumpster loads of mold-damaged wood and wallboard from basements that were finished the wrong way.

The TBF System includes walls, floors, ceilings and more We designed the TBF System with a simple goal in mind: to provide homeowners with the most-attractive, lowest-maintenance, longest-lasting products available for basement finishing. These products are available exclusively from your Total Basement Finishing dealer.

Total Basement Finishing System Benefits

Durable, waterproof, and mold resistant our wall panels are beautiful and easy to clean.

The look of hardwood but the benefits of vinyl: waterproof, warp, crack and mold resistant.

In addition to being waterproof, TBF products are carefully engineered to install quickly without a lot of mess. Some of our wall systems, for example, attach directly to the foundation walls. Others slip into sturdy tracks. Our wall panels and ceiling tiles are prefinished, so there is no taping, compounding, priming, or painting.

We understand that many contracting jobs seem to go on forever – we get it! – we wouldn't want our own houses under construction and a mess for an extended period, and won't do it to you. In many cases we can complete your basement remodeling in just 10 business days!

From start to finish, Total Basement Finishing can handle the entire job. We begin by ensuring that your waterproofing system is working properly and is adequate.

Some things to consider before finishing or remodeling your basement

TBF perimeter wall panels come with or without insulation, install quickly, don't absorb moisture, and are impact resistant.

Most 10-year-old finished basements are due for a remodeling - they get dingy, damp, mildewed and musty. Consider that a basement represents a third of your entire home's available space – and value!

With the Total Basement Finishing System, when you go to sell your home – even 10 years after your renovation – your basement will still look like new and hold its value as finished space, not a project that needs to be redone!

Converting a basement is not without its challenges:

We've seen it all and have the expertise to handle every situation. As a dealer of the Total Basement Finishing system, we can build a dry, spacious-feeling, well-lit, and safe basement living space that would make any homeowner proud.

Basement Finishing Ideas

Bedroom suite

The ideal solution for teens, college students, and guests. Basement bedrooms are private, quiet, relatively easy to heat and cool and the most cost-effective way to add an extra bedroom to your home. Installing a code compliant egress window is rarely a problem.

Basement Apartment

In a tough economy, income from a basement apartment can help with household expenses in a big way. Studio apartments can be created in as little as 250 sq. ft. Larger basements can accommodate a living room, eat-in kitchen, bedroom, and full bathroom.

Play area for kids

Tired of tripping over toys and fighting with kids to pick them up? Create a comfortable play area in the basement and build in lots of easy to use kid-friendly organizers.

Home Theater

A home theater enhances the viewing and listening experience of everything from PBS to Netflix and there is no better place for it than a converted basement. Besides, getting the TV out of the living room is a great way to improve your family life!

Man Cave

If the man of the house needs a place to play cards or watch sports with his pals, a basement man cave may be the answer. No need to spend a lot on expensive furniture. Just make sure it includes a fridge full of his favorite beverages and snacks!

Basement Bar

Entertaining around a basement bar is a great way to hang with friends. Add a pool table and dart board and the local pub will be wondering where its customers went. A walkout basement, with an adjoining patio and garden, is ideally suited to a bar addition.

Hobby and crafts area

Hobbies and crafts are pursuits where making a mess is perfectly acceptable, but because projects may take several weeks to complete, your home may not have a suitable space. Whether your passion is model planes or pastels, sewing or jewelry making, a work room in the basement may give you the space you need to be messy.

Laundry room

A proper laundry room makes this chore much more enjoyable. It should include plenty of shelving, a table for folding, a utility sink, space for an ironing board, heat and dehumidification, and plenty of good lighting.

Extra bathroom

Perhaps all you need to solve your family’s in-house morning rush hour is an extra bathroom. Build yours with sink, toilet, and a walk-in shower, plenty of light and a closet for clothing and everyone will be knocking on the door to use it.
