When it comes to YOUR BASEMENT FLOORING INSTALLATION the first thing you need to do is determine what you are going to use it for.  After all, that will determine what you will want to seriously consider for your flooring. Although moisture can be a concern for basement finishes, there are many types of flooring that are ideal for basement applications. The key to successful basement flooring installations is to ensure that the basement is dry and that there is a smooth, flat surface for the new finish material.

The next thing you need to determine is how ‘dry’ is your basement.  In an area where water never enters in, carpet can be a good choice for flooring.

If carpeting is your choice, an area where you will want to use wisdom is in choosing the padding that will go between the carpet and the cold, cement floor.  EnviroCushion is a good choice, as it is waterproof and has an R factor of 4.5 – – which help to keep your feet nice and toasty!  Another good choice is Delta-FL, which is a heavy-duty plastic that is dimpled.  Installed with the dimples down, this creates an air space that serves as an insulator.

If your basement flooring is going to have a lot of heavy traffic you will want to take that into consideration when choosing your flooring.

If you are pretty much locked into carpeting, you will undoubtedly want to consider a dark-colored, short napped carpet.  For the most, part that stuff is nearly indestructible!  Factor in that today most of this type of carpeting comes with stain repellant products built in, damage by spills is pretty much negated!  And, if pets are going to be part of the “traffic,” their nails, for the most part, will not have too adverse of an affect on the carpet either.

YOUR BASEMENT AND FLOORING INSTALLATION is not, of course, limited to carpeting.  Other choices include:
•    Epoxy Coating
•    Linoleum Sheets
•    Vinyl Sheets
•    Ceramic Tile
•    Vinyl Tile
•    Laminate
•    Hardwood
