Hi... I just saw a commercial about the Owens Corning basement finishing system, and it looks great... I'm just wondering if the surfaces are paintable like regular drywall? Anyone have any experience with this product? Thanks!

You do not need to paint the Owens Corning BFS Panels. This is due to their construction. First, the panel is Owens Corning, Commercial grade panels, very durable and resilient. The cloth layer that covers the panels is made of Polyoflin which has 12 different colors of strands within the fibers, so it takes on the color of your decor and furniture, kinda like a Chamelion. The fibers are even coated with teflon tm for easy cleaning.

The main benefits of this BFS are serious noise reduction, not sound proofing, easy care, very quick installation, and Mainly, the systems does not rot and does not harbor mold and mildew. If you have an existing humidity or leak problem in your basement you may need to care for that prior to installation, or install a dedicated dehumidifier.

Every basement is different and may or may not allow for this system, but figure your local construction cost for the finished room with this system, also who ever your local Owens Corning BFS dealer is will price all the basic room less flooring.

Hope this helps.


Just as I know it - I tell it straight

Yes! The basement system is now paintable. Owens Corning Basement Finishing System has a new basement system that is similar to drywall (you can paint it), but has all the great/same benefits of their original system that people like so much.
