This video will show you how different basement finishing materials react in the event of a basement flood, leak, a water accident, or just by being exposed to typical basement humidity.
Larry Janesky, owner and president of Total Basement Finishing and Dr. Energy Saver, recently conducted this experiment to compare how these different basement walls and flooring solutions behave when exposed to moisture.

The time-lapse video shows how these different assemblies perform in contact with water, in terms of water absorption and mold growth.
Total Basement Finishing products clearly outperform all the typical assemblies because they were specifically developed for basements by the world's authority in basement environment specialization.
