If you are living in an area that sees a lot of heavy rainfall and storms, you will want to make sure that your basement floors are protected from water damage. In today’s article, Guardian Garage Floors shares some of the best flooring solutions you can use to make sure your basement will not see another day of water damage.
Painted concrete. One of the least expensive and most worry-free flooring options is painted concrete. You can use latex-based paint that is resistant to hot and cold temperatures. Use a roller and apply two to three coats to the floor. One downside of this is that you need to touch it up every few years.
Ceramic tile. Ceramic tiles are easy on the wallet and the eyes. This flooring solution can be applied directly over concrete slabs. Tile is also resistant to heat and humidity and is not affected by water damage.
Vinyl tiles. If you want to take it up a notch, use luxury vinyl tiles. This option is elegant, warm underfoot and resistant to water. It also does not chip or crack like ceramic tiles. If water leaks onto the floor, simply grab a mop and wipe.
Concrete sealer. Perhaps the most protective sealer you can apply on concrete basement floors is polyaspartic coatings. This waterproof flooring option is layered by painting, spraying or plastering to prevent corrosion and water damage. It is also ideal for high-traffic areas such as restaurants and offers great resistance to oil, gas and grease. Because of the clarity and shine of the coating, it is often used to restore faded colors on floors.
