Our workers installed Total Basement Finishing’s signature EverLast walls to provide durable — and beautiful! — support around the basement’s perimeter. We also installed a new linen ceiling.

This wonderful family in Hawleyville CT had a semi finished basement that they were dying to finish and claim as a hosting place for friends. We came in and gave the homeowners the basement of their dreams. We came in and installed our Everlast Wall System which is 197% stronger than drywall and will never support mold or mildew. Even if the walls are surrounded by water they will never get wet. To replace the cement flooring we put in our Parque ThermalDry flooring which will not support mold because it is not made of organic materials. We also covered up the wood beams with our Drop Ceiling tiles with some beautiful recess lighting to brighten the area. Once everything was complete the home owners put in a beautiful bar with chairs and hosted many parties and many more to come. We are so happy that we could help them.

Don’t spend thousands of dollars on your basement project only to have to redo it after water damage! Choose from our beautiful, waterproof materials for a perfect basement that will last.
Water can easily damage your home’s foundation, whether this be from flooding, moisture, or just excess water seeping through your foundation’s concrete over time. The real problem occurs when moisture comes in contact with organic materials like wood, plywood, carpet, tiles, fiberglass, and even products like “mold-resistant” drywall. Water in the basement means mold and rot will begin to grow on the drywall (in some cases where not visible) and will may need to be repaired, over even worse, re-gutted. But there is a solution!
To prevent damage from flooding or excess water in your basement, we install a water drainage system before finishing your basement using waterproof and mold resistant materials. Our materials look just like wood and tile but are inorganic and resistant to mold. Our materials are also easily washable. You don’t need to search for studs in order to hang items on the wall, as our panels support up to 300 lbs! Each of the panels is built with an unbroken sheet of insulation inside and the floor panels have raised pegs keeping them off the concrete. This completely insulates your basement.
For years, Connecticut Total Basement Finishing has been recognized as an industry leader in basement finishing and remodeling basements for Fairfield County residents. This recognition comes from our millions of satisfied customers throughout Connecticut who love their basements for as long as they own their home. We do the work we do because we not only want it to look great but to last as long as the house.

After hearing great testimonials from previous customers, she decided to trust the experts at Connecticut Basement Systems to help find the perfect solution and called to schedule her free, no-obligation estimate .
On the day of the appointment, Sales Representative Ferdinand Gojani arrived at the home to inspect the basement. Upon inspection, he knew that we would have the products to solve the concerns of the homeowner. To address the moisture problem, a SaniDry Sedona was recommended which is a dehumidifier that will keep humidity below 55% in the area. With less moisture, the basement will become a healthier and more comfortable area. The other problem that the homeowner had was with the flooring of the basement. The floors were unattractive and they were always cold. Ferdinand recommended our ThermalDry flooring which is beautiful in any basement and is an average of eight degrees warmer than traditional concrete flooring. After reviewing each product intensely with Ferdinand, the homeowner knew that these products would be the perfect solution for her basement.

These Greenwich, CT homeowners were experiencing high humidity in their finished basement. The moisture was making the space uncomfortable, and they feared that it may be damaging their basement flooring. As they sought a solution, one of their friends mentioned that he recently had his basement waterproofed by CT Basement Systems. He informed them that the company had a division dedicated to taking care of such basement needs as theirs and referred them to Total Basement Finishing.
Sales Representative Ferdinand Gojani traveled to the home to evaluate the situation. With a quick inspection of the basement he could see that the homeowners had been right to call the experts at Total Basement Finishing. The high humidity in the basement was making the space uncomfortable and unhealthy to inhabit. High relative humidity and the resulting moisture create potential for mold growth and other damage to any organic materials in the basement. High humidity also creates an ideal environment for dust mites, which are the source of the #1 indoor allergen. Together, Ferdinand and the homeowners discussed the issues at hand and reviewed several possible solutions. In the end, they agreed that the best option was to replace the existing flooring with ThermalDry Elite Plank Flooring, and to install one SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier.
ThermalDry Elite Planks look just like wood flooring but are insulated and consist of 100% inorganic materials. This makes them immune to water damage and mold growth while keeping basement floors up to 10 degrees warmer. The SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier has the capacity to remove 100 pints of water from the air and move 300 cubic feet of dry air per minute. This significantly reduces humidity, kills off dust mites, and prevents musty basement odors. Soon, production began. In just one day the crew, led by Foreman Kevon Burnett, was able to remove the original flooring, replace it with ThermalDry, and Install the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. The homeowners noticed an immediate improvement in the comfort of their basement and were excited to enjoy it for years to come.

As he looked around, he and the homeowner agreed that the space had a lot of potential to become a beautiful living space. Tony proposed a few possible solutions and the homeowner decided that EverLast Walls and ThermalDry Flooring would be perfect for making the basement more comfortable.

This means that there is no need for fiberglass insulation, as EverLast provides am impressive insulation value of R-13 on its own.

Finally, homeowner chose to have TBF Ceiling Tiles installed to complete the room. With a 30-year warranty against mold and sagging, these ceiling tiles are aesthetic and long-lasting.

Together, these products can transform any dark basement into a beautiful new living area.

This keeps ThermalDry 8-10 degrees warmer than the concrete, which makes for a more comfortable and energy-efficient basement. The homeowner also chose EverLast Walls and TBF Ceiling Tiles to cover the rest of his unfinished basement. EverLast wall panels are made from rigid foam insulation and a concrete cladding that is finished with an off-white vinyl surface treatment. This combination makes EverLast 197% stronger than drywall and eliminates the need for fiberglass or other additional insulation. TBF Ceiling Tiles are equally aesthetic and functional.

As he was looking for a solution, a friend referred him to the experts at Total Basement Finishing, and the homeowner reached out to schedule a no cost, no obligation free estimate.
On the day of the appointment, Sales Representative Brad Glazer traveled to the home to evaluate the basement. After introducing himself to the homeowner, Brad began to take a look around and get a feel for the basement. It was not long before Brad realized that the homeowner’s basement had great potential to become a beautiful new part of his home. It was a large, open space that could be made useful for a number of purposes. First, however, it would need some upgrades to make it warmer, more inviting, and more comfortable. Brad shared his findings with the homeowner and proposed some products that would help to transform the downstairs area. After some discussion, the homeowner agreed with Brad’s findings and decided to move forward with the project.
On the day of production, Foreman Joe Orsini and his crew arrived at the home to begin their work. They started by installing EverLast Walls throughout the basement. These innovative walls are made from a combination of rigid foam insulation and a concrete cladding, which is finished with a vinyl surface treatment. This process produces a wall system that is 197% more durable than traditional drywall, plus it eliminates the need for bothersome fiberglass batts by insulating with an R-level of R-15 on its own. EverLast comes in an aesthetic off-white color, so it does not even need to be painted (although it can be), and is the perfect first step in making any unfinished basement more attractive and comfortable.
Next, the crew installed ThermalDry Carpet in Charcoal. ThermalDry carpet comes in 1’x1’ squares that attach with interlocking joints for speedy installation and easy repair. Made from inorganic materials, this carpet will not support mildew or mold growth, and is even stain resistant. ThermalDry tiles each sit on small plastic pegs, which provide a built-in thermal break to your flooring. This means that ThermalDry remains 8-10 degrees warmer than the cold concrete below. Just like EverLast, ThermalDry is both an aesthetic and functional upgrade for any basement.
As the crew finished with the details of the basement, they added a SaniDry dehumidifier to help keep the environment healthy and comfortable. A SaniDry Sedona is the world’s most efficient high-performance dehumidifier, without a bulky heat exchange core. It can remove 100 pints of moisture from the air every day and drains itself. Plus, the SaniDry has a built-in humidity sensor, so once it is installed, there is nothing left for the homeowner to do. By keeping relative humidity below 55%, the SaniDry prevents mold from occurring and rids the home of common indoor allergens, such as those caused by dust mites. It is an effective and efficient way to keep any part of your home dry and healthy.
As the crew finished up their work, the homeowner was astonished at the results. With new walls and floors, he hardly recognized his basement. He was excited with the new addition to his home, and could not wait to share it with friends and family.

This Redding, CT home had cold floors and moisture in the basement. The homeowners wanted to be able to comfortably enter their basement and utilize its full potential. With this in mind as their goal, they decided to trust the best in the business, Total Basement Finishing.
Tony Van Deusen was the Sales Representative who arrived at the home on the day of the free, no-obligation estimate. He was able to inspect the basement and identify the key problematic areas that contributed to the cold air and moisture. There was air flowing freely through the rim joists and flooring of the basement. This was causing the uncomfortable draft and cold floors. Moisture was also able to travel through these areas. Tony then went over all the options with the homeowners for a permanent solution and they decided on installing a SaniDry Sedona, rim joist insulation and ThermalDry tile.
On the day of install, Foreman Viktor Ivan Paul was able to install everything efficiently and precisely. The ThermalDry Sandstone Gray tile was a fantastic choice. Not only did it transform the basement aesthetically, but it also prevents any air or moisture from entering the basement. With the rim joists now insulated, the area can stay at a constant temperature with no drafts. The SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was also installed to keep humidity at a healthy 55% in the space.

With wiring coming down from the ceiling, rotted window frames, cold basement floors, and other negatives, this basement had much room for improvement. The homeowners eventually figured it was time to finish their basement and turn it into something they could utilize and use to greatly improve the overall look of their house.

Even with an unfinished basement, this spacious room was used for some entertainment such as a ping pong table and couches angled to watch TV.
