CHOOSING FLOORING FOR YOU BASEMENT RENOVATION
There are many different types and styles of flooring to decide from when doing any home remodeling projects especially a basement renovation because you are in a colder and damper area of your house. So there are some things to consider like moisture and temperature. Thankfully there are many options to choose from, in many budget areas that can vary from room to room.
When doing a basement remodeling, carpet can be the least expensive in comparison to some of the other alternatives. It is warmer to the bare foot and softer to walk on. The downfall is that over time the heavy traffic areas show more wear, dirt and bacteria over time seeps through the carpet and padding and can not be cleaned out totally and will constantly work its way back through as its being walked on. Keep in mind that water can cause permanent damage unless it's fully extracted immediately. If not mold and mildew will occur.
