Basements The Purpose-Built Basement Solution

Traditional Materials Don’t Make The Cut

Outperforms the Competition

Traditional building materials were not made for the basement environment. Drywall and wood studs provide food sources for mold to thrive in the humidity that is common in basements. The Owens Corning Basement Finishing System was the first purpose-built basement solution for finishing your basement. With over $1 billion dollars in basements installed, you can be assured that when you choose the Owens Corning Basement Finishing System, you are choosing the best finishing materials for your basement.
