Other Basement Wall Panels versus the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™
The basement wall panels from some manufacturers just don’t cut it for many homeowners. Because many of these products are constructed of rigid vinyl or plastic, they often fail to provide the comforting, welcoming environment that the homeowner is looking for. Plus, these products can be just as cumbersome as traditional basement finishing methods when it comes to accessing the home’s foundation and plumbing to make repairs. Alternatively, the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ was designed and engineered specifically for use in the basement, addressing many of the issues homeowners have with other basement paneling products and traditional finishing methods.
What Are the Advantages that Come with the Basement Finishing System?
Homeowners who have the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ installed can enjoy many advantages over those who utilize other manufacturers’ basement wall panels. For instance, the Basement Finishing System™ features walls that are easy to remove and put back into place. This makes it convenient for homeowners to perform repairs to their homes’ foundations, plumbing, and wiring. And, because the removable walls are durable and dent-resistant, there’s no need to worry about causing damage during the easy removal and reinstallation processes.
Many other features of the Owens Corning™ Basement Finishing System™ may also garner rave reviews from homeowners, including:
- Mold- and mildew-resistance* – The Basement Finishing System™ is made of breathable materials that don’t support mold growth.
- Insulating power – Built-in thermal insulation reduces heat loss. This not only makes for year-round comfort, but could also lead to cost savings on energy bills**.
- Quick installation – Unlike some other manufacturers’ basement wall panels, the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ can be installed in only about two weeks. Plus, it creates less mess and disruption than traditional finishing methods.
*While the materials and design of the Owens Corning® Basement Finishing System™ resist mold and mildew, the system cannot prevent or mitigate mold if the conditions necessary for mold growth otherwise exist in your basement.
**Savings vary. Find out why in the seller’s fact sheet on R-values. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.
