Finding the right flooring for your home can be challenging and your basement isn’t the exception. Here are some items to consider when considering basement flooring options.
When you are in the process of selecting basement flooring, take into consideration some of the prep work that will take place. Most basements have a tendency to be cold and have some moisture issues. The subflooring may need to seal cracks, level the sub-floor, and possibly even waterproof the foundation.
When thinking about the basement flooring also consider the purpose of your basement which can help guide you on the best flooring option. Whether you are transforming the basement into a guest room, game room, home office, or kids’ playroom your Spartanburg flooring professionals at Canopy Hardwood is here to help you.
If you are able to control the moisture level in your basement carpet is a terrific choice. Carpet is able to add comfort and warmth to your basement, as well as being a cost-effective option that works well with a wide range of sub-floors. Carpeting also adds some extra cushioning under your feet if your sub-floor is concrete.
Engineered hardwood flooring is more water-resistant than other wood flooring options. This is a great option for those with subflooring that is in good condition, level and smooth. Engineered hardwood is known to bring a modern and elegant look to a basement.
You may not have thought about ceramic tile, but its durability and water-resistant properties landed it on the list of options and can make a excellent choice for your basement flooring. Ceramic tile is also suitable for moisture-prone areas like kitchens, bathrooms, and mudrooms. When properly installed and sealed by your flooring professional and a basement flooding would occur, you would not be forced to retile.
