Best Basement Flooring Options

Having a finished basement in your home provides a safe place for kids to play, and gives you a break from all the screaming and yelling. Nonetheless, your basement can be one of the most difficult places to install a floor due to temperature changes and water leaks. Having a durable floor in your basement is incredibly important not only to withstand the everyday wear and tear but to also remain at a constant level in high humidity and damp situations.

Basement Vinyl Plank Flooring

At Bradford Carpet One Floor & Home, we offer a wide variety of flooring options for your basement, Yet luxury vinyl planks have continued to be a favorite among homeowners. Why? LVP and LVT flooring allows you to have the same natural look and feel of real hardwood, but without the setbacks. There are many benefits to hardwood flooring, but when it comes to your basement, durability and sustainability are key. Hardwood floors don't perform well when exposed to high moisture and temperature changes. An LVP floor allows you to have the same rich look of a plank floor. Not only will you not be able to tell the difference, but your guests won’t either. These floors are also more comfortable and warmer.

We offer the top vinyl flooring brands at Bradford Carpet One, so you never have to worry about compromising. Some of our most notable brands include Invincible H20, COREtec Plus, Armstrong sheet and vinyl planks, Tarkett vinyl and sheet planks, and Bayou. One thing to keep in mind is that each luxury flooring brand provides its own benefits, but all offer water resistance and a tight locking system to keep out dust, dirt, bacteria, and water. Being impervious to water allows your family to live on your basement floor and not have to worry about spills or accidents. For instance, COREtec Plus is 100% waterproof and is a floating floor allowing it to be installed over many existing floors including concrete. In addition, COREtec Plus will not warp, expand, or swell when exposed to water. Nonetheless, if you are looking for a little extra assurance, the exclusive Carpet One brand Invincible H20 offers the same features as COREtec Plus and a Lifetime warranty on wear, fade, rips, tears, indents, water, and installation.

Just because your basement floors sees a lot of traffic doesn’t mean you have to get an ugly floor. Let LVP flooring give you a luxurious basement that can withstand years of use.
