Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Beautifully Renovated Basement Floor in Ozone Park, Queens NY

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016 by Sarah Gozick


An Ozone Park, Queens homeowner wanted to make her basement beautiful. After tearing up her old carpet, she revealed cold, unattractive concrete. The concrete was chilly, uncomfortable and uninviting. She wanted her basement to be inviting and attractive for guests, but she also wanted the floor to be functional and waterproof. Looking for help, she called Quality 1st Basement Systems to learn about basement flooring options.


Qualified basement specialist Nick Biris visited the homeowner and discussed flooring options with her. She loved that ThermalDry basement flooring was made with waterproof materials but still looked great. There were five different colors of ThermalDry basement flooring to choose from, and because of its tiled design the colors can be mixed and matched. The homeowner decided on two colors: sandstone and parquet. Organic basement flooring such as wood can grow mold, rot, and hold in moisture. But ThermalDry basement flooring is made with inorganic vinyl. Its raised peg design lifts the flooring up from the cold concrete, keeping it warmer.

Installation was simple. The tiled design allows for ThermalDry flooring to be easily snapped into place. The vinyl finish is easy to clean, so in case of spills or a mess a piece can easily be popped out and wiped down. Replacing damaged tiles is effortless. Now the basement looks fantastic! The parquet flooring has the look of real wood without the worry of mold and rot. The homeowner is excited about her results, she loves how her basement floor feels and looks.
