At Promax we recommend you install paneled wall basement systems. Standard drywall harbors water until your basement is infested with mold, insects, and rodents. Drywall also needs extra installation, has a shorter lifespan, is highly combustible, and has a lack of actual strength making it more difficult to hang anything without first finding a stud. The paneled basement wall systems offer several benefits that other wall material, like drywall, does not. Some benefits of the basement wall systems include:
- Mold resistant
- Easy installation
- Insect repellant
- No extra insulation needed
- No drywall dust
- Rodent repellant
- Heat resistant
- Sound proof
- Lifetime Warranty
The unique design of the paneled walls provides your finished basement with seamless wall design, eliminating the use of divider strips or vinyl tape. The inorganic material used to create the paneled walls are more durable that sheet rock and can hold up to 300lbs no matter where it’s hung. This gives you an endless number of basement remodeling possibilities. The panels used for our seamless, paneled basement wall system connects so beautifully, that once completed, they will match the appearance of the other walls in your home. The material is extremely versatile and also works great in garages, offices, and apartment buildings.
If your basement does take on water, drywall requires you to remove and replace several inches, even feet of the wall. Our paneled basement wall systems are waterproof (panels do not stop water from entering your basement), so this isn’t necessary, saving you time and money. In addition to basement work, we also specialize in kitchen remodeling, siding installation, roofing, deck building and bathroom remodeling.
