Is vinyl flooring suitable for basements?

If you?re remodeling your home, that will most likely include the basement, and you?ll need to think about materials that will stand up to that environment; they get humid, damp, susceptible to leaking or floods, as well as lots of foot traffic.

A vinyl floor is affordable, easy to install, and is considered the best option for the basement. It comes in two versions: sheet or luxury.

It is waterproof

Vinyl is a waterproof product, and if it's the luxury version, it can be submerged or spilled on without peeling and rippling. So whether it's a laundry room, family or game area, or an apartment, any concerns about leaking and flooding are eliminated.

Durability fit for kids and pets

While all vinyl is durable, the luxury version is thicker still, being five times denser with a top, transparent, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and spills.

Vinyl can be installed over anything

This includes concrete. Because it's waterproof, dampness won't seep and damage the floor and, although underlayments aren't always necessary, you might want to use a vapor barrier if the room is prone to leaks. Please seek the advice of the experts at our vinyl flooring store.

Luxury vinyl can also be installed as a floating floor where the pieces click together, mat, then hover over the subfloor without nails or glue. That's important because this type of installation makes it easy to remove and replace a piece if necessary.

Affordable style

Whether sheet or luxury, you will find nature-inspired, true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile, taken with high-definition photography, making them clear, vibrant, and accurate. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks. While sheets come in big rolls of six-foot or 12-foot widths, luxury vinyl can be cut into planks or tile-sized square pieces. Many feel the extra seams add even more to the realism.
