The SaniDry™ XP Basement Air System is the ideal choice for most basements. This model can easily be stored in a corner or closet, features ductwork capabilities and a self-draining design.
EverLast™ basement windows replace rotting, inefficient basement windows. No-leak installation and low-E glass improves energy efficiency.
Products like drywall, fiberglass, and wood studs become damp and attract mold, therefore the air you breathe will contain microscopic mold spores that can cause a wide range of serious health problems. Tearing out basement materials damaged by mold & moisture adds to the volume of waste we deposit in landfills – another important environmental issue.
The TBF system avoids these problems, which impact health, environmental quality, and your finances. That’s why we’re your greenest basement finishing option. Do it once, do it right and do it green with Total Basement Finishing.

EverLast™ Basement Walls include 2 1/2 inches of R-13 closed-cell insulation, saving you up to $400/year on your heating and cooling bills.
Made with HCFC blowing agents, EverLast™ Wall Panel's closed-cell polystyrene insulation is 94% less ozone-depleting than standard CFC blowing agents used in other products. This insulation may be reused for various applications.
The 1/2" hard-panel wallboard consists of 95% certified recycled materials. Together, the insulation and wallboard combine to produce a far greener alternative to hard-to-recycle drywall and fiberglass products used in other basement finishing systems.
All plastic compounds used to create ThermalDry® tiled flooring and sub floor matting are created with post-consumer products, and their plastic compounds are fully recyclable.
Installing ThermalDry® floor matting eliminates the need for several generations of wood sub flooring, as it should last many times longer.
Installing ThermalDry® also creates a thermal break on your basement floor, making the surface 8-10 degrees warmer than the cold concrete below.
TBF Drop Ceiling Tiles create an environmentally friendly alternative to drywall ceiling options-- no known adverse effects on the ecology are known. Unlike traditional tiles that grow mold and sag in the middle, our ceiling tiles have a 30-year no-sag no-mold written warranty.
Drop Ceilings are ideal for the full range of energy-efficient lighting, including fluorescent lighting, halogen lights, LED lighting, and other options.
Our dropped ceilings are installed on a recyclable metal framing in your home that will stay strong for decades to come.
This SaniDry™ XP is a highly efficient basement dehumidifier. Capable of removing 110 pints of water from a basement each day, it's three times more efficient than well-known hardware store models.
The SaniDry™ includes an air filtration system that filters particles out as small as 2 microns, keeping your space healthy and clean. An automatic digital on/off feature allows you to set it and forget it.
This basement dehumidifier is powerful enough for ductwork, allowing you to install it in a closet or utility area, where it ducts dry air into your finished space.
EverLast™ Basement Windows feature an all-vinyl design that will never corrode, need paint, rot, or support mold growth. Their sleek design helps to eliminate energy-wasting drafts often associated with other designs.
These windows have an insulative R-rating of 2.94, making them more than 30% more energy efficient than traditional single-paned, steel-framed basement windows.
Two panes of Low-E glass help to promote solar gain in the winter and limit it in the summer, keeping your basement warm during cold months, and cooler during the summer.
