When it comes to finishing a basement, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing the right flooring. Basement floors are unique in that they need to be able to withstand moisture and potential flooding, while also being comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Here are some options for basement flooring that RPK Construction recommends.

Concrete Epoxy

If you’re looking for a durable and long-lasting basement flooring option, concrete epoxy is an excellent choice. Concrete epoxy is a resin-based flooring that is applied to the concrete surface to create a seamless and durable finish. It provides a low-maintenance surface that can withstand heavy foot traffic and is resistant to moisture, making it an ideal choice for basements. The epoxy creates a non-porous surface that repels water, preventing mold and water damage. Additionally, it is easy to clean and maintain, making it a great option for homeowners who want a hassle-free flooring option. With a wide range of colors and finishes available, concrete epoxy can also be customized to fit your design preferences.

Luxury Vinyl Tile

LVT, or Luxury Vinyl Tile, is a type of flooring that has become increasingly popular in recent years. It is made of several layers of vinyl, which are fused to create a highly durable and waterproof material. LVT comes in a variety of colors, patterns, and finishes, including wood and stone looks, which can give your basement a modern, industrial, or even rustic look. One of the benefits of LVT is that it is easy to install and maintain, making it a cost-effective flooring option. It is important to note that if the LVT floor does become flooded, it should be removed as quickly as possible to allow for proper drying and then professionally re-installed.

Carpet Tiles

Carpet tiles are another great option for basement floors. They are easy to install and can be replaced individually if they get damaged or stained. They also come in a variety of colors and patterns, allowing you to create a unique look for your basement. Carpet tiles are also softer underfoot than traditional carpets, making them a comfortable choice for a basement space. Additionally, they can be easily removed and cleaned, making them a low-maintenance option for your basement flooring. It’s worth noting that while some carpet tiles come with waterproof backing, in a flooding event all affected carpet tiles should be removed and discarded. New carpet tiles can be installed when the subfloor is thoroughly dry.

Ceramic Tile

Ceramic tile is a classic choice for basement flooring. It’s durable, moisture-resistant, and comes in a variety of styles and colors. While it’s not the warmest option, you can always add area rugs or underfloor heating to make it more comfortable. Something to consider is the installation process. Ceramic tiles require a flat and level surface to be installed properly, which can be a challenge in older homes with uneven basement floors. It’s important to have a professional installer assess your basement floor and make any necessary preparations before laying the tiles.

No matter which option you choose, it’s important to work with a professional contractor like RPK Construction to ensure that your basement flooring is properly installed and sealed. With the right flooring, your basement can become a comfortable and functional space that adds value to your home.
