Just about any homeowner who has had standard carpeting installed in a basement will tell you that its not a good idea. If a basement gets wet from ground weater seeping in or a plumbing leak, carpeting gets ruined and needs to be replaced. Even without water, moisture and water vapor permeate conrete floors and get aabsorbed into the carpet, making it damp feeling and musty smelling.

In a standard basement carpeting installation, the carpet goes down over a foam pad laid directly on the concrete floor, or on a pad installed over a wood subfloor. In either case, normal basement moisture causes serious problems. Damp wood subflooring will get moldy and eventually rot. The foam backer pad absorbs and holds water, creating ideal conditions for mold and mildew. In a short time your carpet is smelly and stained ruined before youve really had a chance to enjoy it.

An attractive family of basement flooring. ThermalDry floor tiles are designed to snap together. In addition to carpeted tiles, simulated wood parquet and ceramic tile versions are available.

The product development team at Basement Systems threw out the rule book when they set out to develop basement carpeting. ThermalDry flooring is the result of their innovative work.

ThermalDry carpeting doesnt roll out over the floor; its manufactured in square tiles that snap together. With ThermalDry carpet tiles, theres no foam pad to soak up water. Instead, theres a waterproof plastic base designed with a built-in drainage plane and thermal break. Water drains through ThermalDry carpet rather than soaking in, eliminating worries about mold, mildew and moisture damage.

It makes sense to do it right the first time so that you dont have to do it over. ThermalDry carpet (as well as other ThermalDry flooring) will easily outlast standard floor carpeting, and look great doing it.
