Rubber is one of the best suited materials for basement flooring. Rubber is very low maintenance, and it is stain, mold, and mildew resistant - unlike wood. Any time moisture may be present, like in a wet basement where water doesn’t always drain, it’s imperative to choose a product that will not absorb liquid. Greatmats offers rubber flooring for basement settings in numerous styles, sizes, and price ranges.

This green product is non-absorbent and provides a cozy surface for a basement space. It works as a sound dampener and floor protector. It’s a low cost flooring option that is ¼ inch thick and 4 feet wide. These flooring rolls can be cut to any length of at least 15 feet.
