There was never a better time to remodel your basement the green way.

If you’ve been dreaming of transforming that dingy basement into a home theater, a home gym or any type of livable space in your home, the time to finally tackle that project is now.

The Federal Government, under the section 1121 of the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act of 2009, is giving qualifying homeowners a series of incentives to make their homes more energy efficient, including a Tax Credit of 30% of the cost of energy efficient improvements, up to $1,500 dollars.

Total Basement Finishing’s  EverLast Perimeter Wall Panels qualify as an eligible building envelope component under 25c of the Internal Revenue Code and IRS Notice 2006-26.

Basement insulation is one of the most cost effective energy efficient improvements. The U.S. Department of Energy reports enormous savings from insulated basement walls.  For example, picture a 1,500 square-foot home in the northwest U.S. that has a finished basement with R-10 insulation.  If it’s heated by natural gas (at $0.72/therm), a homeowner should save $400 every year with an R-10 insulation!

EverLast Basement Wall Panels are mounted on a R-13 rated, closed cell foam insulation board which,  unlike fiberglass and competing fiberglass based insulation boards, will not soak up moisture and loose its R-Value. There are also other features that make Total Basement Finishing’s EverLast walls the best choice for your green basement remodeling project.

  • 100%waterproof, inorganic and non-absorbent. Will not soak up water, support mold growth or get ruined, even if your basement floods.
  • The cement core panels give you sturdy walls to hang book shelves, flat screen TVs and fixtures with no need to look for studs.
  • The washable, stain-resistant, waterproof finish is virtually maintenance free while giving you the refined, high-end look you are looking for in a basement remodeling project.
  • Everlast Wall Panels come with an impressive 50 years warranty.

There was never a better time to get the basement room of your dreams with Total Basement Finishing. But you have to act quickly: homeowners only qualify for this credit if the walls are installed after 12/31/08 and before 1/1/11.
