I think one of the more common questions as of late has been "can you compare your finishing system to the Owens Corning system?" Technically...when I'm at work...I can't.
However, this is MY blog, and I'll tell you what's up.
Here I talk a little about the Pioneer Home Basement Finishing "system" called BasementShield.
Here's a list of things that Make BasementShield better/different than The Owens Corning Finishing system:
1.) Water and moisture control is included. Owens Corning, as of this past year finally got a grip and started outsourcing to Basement Systems dealers basements with water problems. HOWEVER, because they outsource this will add an additional 6,000-$16,000 on top of the OC's $50,000 price tag.
2.) Because our walls are made with mold and mildew resistant material that's just as strong as Drywall, you get a finished feel that's similar to upstairs. The walls are designed with traditional studs that won't rot, insulation and are combined with the moisture control system installed to fully protect your basement.
3.) Ceiling and Flooring options are INCLUDED in the price you get! This is something that OC hasn't ever done.
4.) Our system is custom. Design what you want, paint it, wall paper it, custom trim, built in storage..you name it, it can be installed! OC worries about your 4 perimeter walls which come in 1 color and tell you "the color will change with the carpet you put down." *sigh*
5.) Recessed lighting, electrical can be customised for your needs and design ideas.
6.) All of the products are non-organic, which means that mold and mildew can't use them as a food source.
7.) Most designs can be constructed in the same amount of time as an OC system, for thousands of dollars less than Owens Corning.
The Pioneer Home Basement Finishing system is the best, most cost effective, efficient, customisable and protected system on the market today.
