Insulated Subfloor Installation in Southeastern New Hampshire & Greater Boston
See what makes this insulated subfloor system a must for your finished basement.
An attractive, long-lasting floor depends on a high-performance subfloor system
Anyone with dreams of a beautiful finished basement is sure to pay attention to flooring. Whether your wish is for laminate, carpeting, engineered wood or vinyl, there’s one critical ingredient that many homeowners overlook: the subfloor.
That’s why it’s important to know about an innovative product that we install, called ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™.

Plywood subflooring and a wet basement can lead to mold problems
When it comes to basement flooring, we know what DOESN’T work. Installing most types of finished flooring directly on top of the concrete will result in a cold, clammy floor that can easily be damaged by moisture. It’s also a mistake to install a plywood subfloor. Sure, the wood will make your finished floor a little more comfortable, but wood will also absorb and retain moisture from plumbing leaks, spills, high humidity and dampness from your concrete slab. Damp wood is a favorite food source and habitat for mold. In addition to destroying your floor, mold and wood rot put hazardous mold spores into the air you breathe. It’s expensive and messy to remove moldy, moisture-damaged flooring and subfloor materials.
Insulate basement walls too
When it’s cold outside, more heat loss will occur through basement walls than through the basement floor. Adding basement wall insulation will make your basement space more comfortable. In fact, basement wall insulation will benefit your whole house in terms of comfort and energy efficiency.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a basement subfloor that can’t be damaged by mold or moisture, and that will keep your finished flooring warm and comfortable all year long?
