Badger Basement Systems Before & After

    The Curley's contacted us when they were looking to make their outdated basement into a space they could use again. They were looking for a family room, full bathroom and a kitchenette area. We used Elite Planking-Light Pecan for the flooring, Linen color for the Ceiling, and of course our Everlast Wall Panels. All of our basement finishing products are mold and water resistant.

    This home in Watertown, WI got quite the update.  No longer do they have a large "storage room" but rather beautiful, usable space that they can enjoy for years to come. 
  • A new window and fresh walls will change the way you look at your basement!

    These Madison homeowners got water in the basement and also wanted to freshen up the appearance of the basement.  We installed a partial water control system to stop the water infiltration, 2 new windows and window wells and some wall panels to make the basement a dry, usable space.

    We did quite a bit of work for these Monona, WI homeowners.  One job in particular was the Finished Basement Ceiling.  Our finished ceiling comes with a 30 year warranty against sagging and mold.  We offer two different textures to give your basement a sophisticated, finished look.  Unlike other basement ceiling tiles, ours are designed to withstand humidity and moisture.  They will not sag, droop or stain like you sometimes get with other tiles that are not made of inorganic mineral wool but rather of cellulose which is recycled newspaper.
