Learn more about our basement flooring system with this educational video.
Typical basement floors are hard, cold concrete. Since concrete is porous, ground moisture continually makes its way through, contributing to the humidity in your basement. When traditional flooring materials like organic carpeting, chipboard, and wood are placed on a concrete basement floor, moisture collects between the flooring and the concrete floor.
Over time that moisture will be absorbed by the materials on top and lead to mold, rot, and musty odors. Other products (ceramic, stone, or marble tile) are grouted to the concrete and are difficult and expensive to repair or replace.
At MidAmerica Basement Systems, our basement flooring options are all made specifically for concrete basement floors. When installed in your home, our flooring options will never rot, decay or support mold growth. All of our flooring products are designed to easily interlock for quick installation without grout or adhesives. The interlocking flooring is ideal for basements since the flooring can be picked up and reinstalled if water gets underneath. Combined with our other basement products and our basement waterproofing system, it's a great way to upgrade your home!

Many homeowners want hardwood flooring in their basement but are concerned about the potential of flooding and water damage. MidAmerica Basement Systems has the perfect solution for this problem with ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring, a faux-wood basement flooring that looks and feels like natural wood.
ThermalDry Elite Plank Flooring is made from 100% inorganic materials, making it completely waterproof and mold-resistant. This ensures that your basement will be protected for the long term while still looking great. Available in two beautiful finishes, ThermalDry Elite flooring will match any basement decor.
ThermalDry® basement floor tiles are engineered specifically for basement environments. Unlike ceramic basement floor tiles, ThermalDry® basement flooring will never crack or shatter. They are available in both Sandstone and Canyon Beige to allow you to find the right color choice for your home's design.
ThermalDry® creates a thermal break from the surface of your concrete floor, making the floor temperature 8-10°F warmer. This flooring has no grout to clean, making it a very low-maintenance flooring option. Should it ever be damaged, ThermalDry® Floor Tiles are easy to repair or remove and replace.
ThermalDry® carpeted floor tiles are designed to keep your basement floor warm and dry. Unlike a long blanket of carpeting, damaged or worn tiles can easily be replaced. This carpet comes in a lovely mocha color, which fits perfectly with nearly any color scheme and furniture.
ThermalDry® carpeting is made from inorganic materials to provide a waterproof system that won't be damaged by mold, mildew, odors, or rot. The floor tiles provide a snug fit to the basement perimeter without needing to be glued or adhered to the floor. This system doesn't have any need for a subfloor, and if for some reason a tile is damaged or worn out, the individual tile can easily be replaced.
ThermalDry® Insulated Floor Decking™ is a unique basement subfloor that combines inorganic, waterproof flooring with insulation for exceptional warmth and water resistance. Like all our other flooring products, ThermalDry® Floor Decking is made from 100% inorganic material to prevent any issues with mold, mildew, rot, and warping due to water.
This system comes with rigid foam insulation, providing an exceptionally warm and comfortable floor in the basement. The thin design also saves an inch of headroom compared to a traditional built-up wood subfloor, which can be very valuable in the basement. Though ThermalDry® Floor Decking is not considered a finished floor, it is easily compatible with all our floor finishing systems.
ThermalDry® Basement Floor Matting is perfect for homeowners who want to install wall-to-wall carpeting in their finished basement. By installing this underneath your carpeting as a subfloor, you protect it from moisture from the concrete below. This subfloor is made with completely inorganic material to ensure that it lasts longer and won't have any issues with mold growth should you have a leak in your basement.
ThermalDry® subfloor matting is 100% waterproof, creating a vapor barrier on your floor. It also provides a thermal break that causes the surface of the floor to be 8-10°F warmer than the concrete floor. This product is compatible with tack strips and will outlast several cycles of carpet. ThermalDry® installs quickly and doesn't need grout or adhesives.
