Foundation Wall Panels by Boccia Inc – Perfect for finishing your basement!

Basement Foundation Wall Vapor Retarder Panels

Protect your basement investment by installing a proper vapor barrier

Before finishing your basement, you must consider a vapor barrier on the foundation walls. This often neglected feature is critical to successfully finishing the basement by providing the following:

  1. Reduces moisture vapor passing the foundation wall.
  2. Directs foundation condensation and water to the sub-floor drainage system.
  3. Isolates the foundation from interior environment.  Separates wood framing and insulation from the damp cold foundation wall.  This creates a thermal and vapor break which drastically improves the basement environment.

Many people choose to paint the basement walls when finishing their basement. This can cause trouble down the road as the paint on the concrete’s surface will trap moisture within the concrete walls. Ultimately this can lead not only to peeling paint, but also to crumbling of the wall which is the foundation of your home!

Reduce your risk of mold forming within the basement walls

The right way to finish a basement is by mechanically installing a vinyl vapor retarder to the wall. This will reduce moisture passing through the foundation walls which can lead to mold problems.

Too often insulation is pressed up against a bare foundation wall leading to mold.  Our rigid foundation panels will create a physical barrier between the insulation and the damp cold foundation wall. Vapor Barriers are mechanically fastened to the inside face of the foundation wall.  Any condensation moisture is directed behind the panels to the subfloor drainage system keeping the basement dry!

Clean white finish brightens up the basement

The panels are durable and attractive; they brighten the basement and can be left as the finish wall system.  These panels are permanently attached to the foundation. They do not support mold growth and can easily be cleaned.  Additionally, the wall panel serves as a thermal break creating as much as a 10 degree difference between the concrete wall and the surface of the finished wall panel.

Of course conventional sheetrock walls can be installed in front of this vapor barrier which can be painted and decorated knowing that proper precautions were taken behind them.
