How to Solve Dampness Problems in Basement Flooring
A common problem in many homes is a damp basement floor.... water creeping into the basement floor and causing musty smells, mold, rusting of metal tools, rotting and disintegrating cardboard boxes etc. Unfortunately, making basement floors completely waterproof is big task and normally a specialist job... and can be quite expensive if a complete fix is required. And in many cases it's really hard to justify the expense.
However with HandyDeck decking tiles you can avoid a complete basement waterproofing routine... and still keep stored objects high and dry and free of ground contact.
You simply lay HandyDeck interlocking wood, granite or ceramic tiles over the existing surface for an instant basement tile solution. Its quick, easy and the whole job can be finished in just an hour or so.
The open mesh base on the tiles allows any water to drain away freely and easily under the tiles. Excellent air circulation is maintained due to the open mesh base, minimizing the risk of mold growth. And the attractive wood or stone surface offers a strong, dry and stable support for storage of boxes etc.
Since HandyDeck tiles come in a range of different styles and colors, you could make a border with one style around the edge of the basement floor or perhaps create an attractive centerpiece with a mixture of other styles. If you get tired of of your first basement flooring design, just lift up the tiles and lay them down in a different design.
