Building Finished Basements that Last

If it is time to finish your basement make sure you do it correctly. After all you want it to last.

The hard part about making finished basements last is that the great majority of contractors you speak with install wood, drywall and other organic materials. These materials are susceptible to mold and rot if they get wet. A burst pipe in the kitchen could mean you need to tear out your newly finished basement!

At Tri-State Total Basement Finishing, we are not like other contractors. We only use state of the art patented, exclusive Total Basement Finishing basement materials that are attractive but also waterproof! You can have both a beautifully finished basement and one that won't be damaged by a water leaking from a water heater.

Job Stories From Lafayette, NJ
Basement Environment Fixed in Lafayette, NJ

Older homes often have stone foundations; as the foundation ages, the mortar becomes less and less viable.  Over time, the mortar deteriorates, turning to sand, and allowing water to seep into the basement.  Originally, basements were simply a place for the mechanical systems of the house to be stored, but over time, we have turned to using the basement as additional living space:  recreation rooms, offices, laundry rooms, etc.  However, it is vital to eliminate moisture in order to create a healthy living environment prior to turning any basement into usable living space.

Tri-State Total Basement Finishing has more than 50 years of combined construction experience.  It is because of this experience that we are your local area expert on Basement to Roof reconstruction.  During this time, we have also partnered with additional local area experts in order to garner the homeowner additional expertise:  for instance, Jim & Julie of Lafayette, NJ have a home built in the 1920’s.  This home has a stone foundation and the stone weeps from time to time.  We took a look at the stone and immediately realized much of the mortar was missing completely, and past repairs that were made, were inadequate for the high water table in the area. 

Foundation repairs can be expensive, but there are reasonably priced maintenance undertakings that should be tackled first:  are the roof gutters in good repair?  Are the downspouts properly located a few feet off of the foundation?  Are the trees and bushes around the perimeter of the foundation properly maintained so that they do not collect moisture and debris?  Is the soil surrounding the home properly grades so that water run-off is directed away from the foundation?

After it was confirmed that the homeowner had done everything they were able to alleviate their water issue, it was time to call in our sister company.  Under the umbrella of Basement Systems, we have many sister companies to deal with all your basement repair needs!  Our water proofing expert was able to eliminate the water the encroachment and Chris and his team installed a SaniDry to ensure that water would no longer be problematic for this family!

Drying up the Basement in Lafayette, NJ

Tri-State Total Basement Finishing has over 30 years of contracting experience.  We have a great deal of partnerships with many fine organizations, and often get referrals from them.  We were called into a basement in Lafayette, NJ that floods seasonally.  Because there was free standing water in the basement, there was not much we could do for this couple in that moment.  We recommended they first take care of the water encroachment problem they were having, and invited them to give us a ring after speaking with our partner.

As fate would have it, we ended up discussing the best remedy for the water in their basement.  In addition to redirecting rain run off, and installing french drains around the parameter of the home, we installed a SaniDry Air Handler System to drain into the sump-pump.  When these items hold up through the rainy season, we were invited back to refinish the basement.
