Options for Basement Flooring Over Concrete
Ideas for Flooring Directly Over Concrete in Basement Floor Areas
The first thing to decide is how you'll be using your space. For a recreational area or a kids play room, you may wish to consider a foam flooring product. We also carry foam tiles products with carpeted surfaces. These foam products are excellent for basement floors because they provide a softer surface that is also nonabsorbent.
To make your basement into a home gym, you may wish to look at a rubber flooring product. Rubber is a common product for protecting the concrete from weights and heavy equipment in home gyms. You can install rubber tiles and rubber flooring rolls directly on top of a concrete basement flooring surface.
Modular floor tiles are an excellent option for basement floors that occasionally seep moisture because the surface of the floor is not lying directly on the concrete surface. Raised tiles such as these allow for air and water to flow beneath the surface of your floor covering, allowing the concrete floor to breath.
