Aging is an unavoidable feat, but nonetheless, it can be tough to decide what the best route is for an aging parent, loved one, or yourself. With MidAmerica Basement System’s patented products, we may be able to help you, a parent, or a loved one age in place. “Aging in place” is a term used when an elderly individual remains in an existing dwelling. The individual largely retains independence and autonomy in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. Making the home comfortable for your loved one for many years to come, may not be as difficult as one may think.
Things that make it easier to be mobile from home are level concrete slabs to avoid tripping hazards, low carpets that would be easy to push a walker or a wheelchair over, and lower level entrance to evade steps. It is also helpful to have wide walkways, and handicap accessible bathrooms, kitchens, and entertainment spaces.
MidAmerica Basement Systems offers solutions to all of these concerns. Concrete both inside and outside the home are leveled with PolyLevel. PolyLevel is an inorganic polyurethane foam, which conditions the soil underneath it and hardens into place. With small injection sites, warranties, and superior technology, PolyLevel is an easy choice. With our waterproof flooring options, like Thermal Dry Tile or Carpet Flooring, the floors will not only stay dry, but are easily maintained options built to last. Waterproofing and crawlspace encapsulation make the basement a desirable place to spend time, and with our Total Basement Finishing line, full of durable, inorganic, waterproofed materials, finished spaces will stay dry. Even the walls are made of inorganic, water resistant products. The insulation is designed to be energy efficient, and safe against water.
No matter the basement goal, finishing the basement with Total Basement Finishing products means the basement stays dry.
