Basement Finishing Solutions
Take advantage of your basement! You could be missing out on having a nice, comfortable room beneath your home. Don't tolerate a cold, damp basement any longer. ABS Foundation Services can put you on the right track to having a finished basement which will add usable space and value to your home.
ZenWall and BrightWall are two great solutions that give your basement a great semi-finished look at an affordable price. These wall paneling solutions attach to your existing wall and improve the aesthetics of the basement as well as its overall waterproofing.
Wall panel features:
- Hidden fasteners for a pleasant appearance.
- Washable surface for easy cleaning.
- Insulation that keeps your basement warm and dry.
If you decide to completely finish your basement later on, finished walls can be installed directly over the wall paneling. And if you decide not to finish your basement, the wall paneling systems look great on their own! ZenWall and Bright wall put you one step closer to the finished basement you always wanted.
Hardwood and linoleum flooring may look nice, but they are not always the right choice for a basement. Moisture and mildew can lead to damage. ThermalDry is a great alternative to conventional flooring for your basement. ThermalDry comes in four great styles: carpet, tile, parquet "wood" tiles, and basic matting. The matting style lets you install wall-to-wall carpeting of your choosing directly on top.
ThermalDry also adds the benefit of enhancing the waterproofing of your basement by allowing small amounts of water to pass underneath the flooring in the event of a flood. Best of all, ThermalDry is much warmer than a concrete basement floor, transforming your basement into a warm, dry, comfortable living space.

What our clients say about ABS:
There's an old adage which states that a person should always get a second and third opinion/estimate and hear out everyone's approach before making a final decision.
I'm certainly grateful that I took the aforementioned advice. ABS was the final estimate I had sought and had previously resigned myself to embarking down a far more expensive and laborious path to fix the issue with the intermediate basement flooding we experienced whenever there was heavy rain or melting snow.
Tim Case, who is the owner of ABS, looked everything over and within 2 minutes of him being down in the basement, I felt reassured about his approach to assessing and correcting the problem.
He took the time to look things through and explain what the problems might be along with the various options we had available to us.
Rather than provide us with the most expensive solution (which, it turns out, would have involved work we didn't need), he offered a well thought out plan which not only appears to have addressed our problem, but also did so at a cost far lower than the estimates offered by several of his competitors. He was an honest, professional, pragmatic and extremely pleasant man.
While it took about three weeks to get everything scheduled and finished, he disclosed this to me upfront and set my expectations accordingly, so my wife and I didn't experience any impatience.
The guys who did the work itself were fabulous; they explained what they were doing, did a thoroughly professional job and left everything in tip top shape prior to leaving.
Though ultimately, time will tell whether or not the solution will hold in the long run, I would not hesitate to use ABS again for any basement work we need. After listening to three other companies who were more interested in selling the highest priced solution based on what we "told" them we'd been experiencing, it's incredibly refreshing to work with a company like ABS. Tim and his team run a first class operation and they receive my highest recommendation!
