Basement wall panels – Keeping the basement walls and ceiling free from dampness

25 November, 2022

Dampness and humidity are big issues in most basements. If you have a basement space that you wish to use, make sure you do the interiors well. The basements have problems like bad window quality, property located near a waterbody, pump not functioning, and compromised grading and drainage. Firstly, you need to resolve these issues, remove the damaged drywall, and settle for PVC basement waterproofing panels

½ inch thick and long-lasting PVC boards

Duramax boards are ½ inch thick, have 16-inches widths, and the length can be customized accordingly. Basement waterproofing panels are a one-time investment because they can last a lifetime. The vinyl boards have a minimum shelf-life of 45 to 50 years and can go up to even 100 years. Duramax basement wall panels can be installed easily without extra cost on the material purchase or hiring labor. One contractor can install the vinyl sheets within 7 to 8 hours. There is no need to keep your basement closed for more than one day. The panels are cut to shape before the installation. The PVC sheets are attached to the studs with the help of fasteners and screws. The tongues and grooves are arranged in interlocking patterns. This facilitates a faster installation process. 

Easy and simple maintenance

Vinyl basement waterproofing panels need easy and simple maintenance. The vinyl boards installed on the walls and ceiling keep the concrete covered and in good condition. The vinyl boards do not require daily maintenance but occasional cleaning is good. Do not use bleaches, acids, and abrasives. Clean the surface of the panels by gently wiping them with a soft cloth and a cleaning agent. 

Moisture-resistant PVC boards

Duramax PVC Panels has been reputed in the USA for manufacturing vinyl sheets for over 40 years. Our panels are customized for industries that include warehouses, grow rooms, wet rooms, dairy farms, fisheries, restaurants, commercial kitchens, basements, shipping containers, hospitals, riding stables, poultry, and more. The boards are ASTM-certified and FDA-compliant. The vinyl sheets are lightweight and can be easily transported from the factory to your location. Duramax basement wall panels are completely moisture-resistant. They are resistant to mold as the surface of the panels is coated with an antibacterial layer. They do not have backers so the panels do not draw moisture and humidity into the walls. There are various waterproofing solutions in the market. Those are injected into the foundation’s cracks but do not guarantee a long-term or permanent solution. Vinyl has strong waterproofing capabilities like no other. 

Eco-friendly and lightweight  panels

The panels are non-porous,  they are eco-friendly, can be recycled and produce minimal waste. The PVC sheets resist impacts, abuse, and chemical spills and control odor. The basement wall panels have a Class A, 1-hour fire resistivity that prevents sudden fire accidents. Duramax manufactures white color plastic panels that remain the same by not turning yellowish. The pure white color gives a fresh and spacious look to the interior. You can paint the surface using PVC-grade paint. The panels have a smooth surface that does not attract dirt or impurities. Many plan to turn their basement into grow rooms, and we all know the importance of light for the growth of cannabis. PVC sheets are light-reflective so you can save an amount from the monthly energy bill. Most grow room owners are concerned about energy consumption but are fine when you have vinyl panels installed. 

Vinyl panels – its affordability explained

You too might think that FRP panels are a low-cost solution because they are available only for $70. Did you notice that there is little difference between the pricing of FRP and PVC boards? Vinyl panels are a little expensive as they come for $83.58. But, FRP sheets cost a hefty amount for the installation so the total you invest is about $141.50 and the maintenance cost is also high. PVC boards cost only $5 to install so the total you spend is $88.58. It is very important to clearly understand the cost of making informed decisions.
