When selecting a floor for a basement, many things must be considered. If your basement gets damp or has the potential to flood, it’s essential that you select a product that is waterproof. If your subfloor is cold concrete, you will likely want a solution with insulative properties, or, include an underlayment in the flooring process. You may also want to think about what the basement space will be used for.

Will you have a gym space, a living room, a rec room, and/or a bathroom? All of these considerations will impact your final decision.

Greatmats offers a wide variety of flooring products that perform well in basement settings, with vinyl basement flooring being among the best available. The most popular products are attractive, durable, and affordable.
