Basement Flooring Guide
For many homeowners, the basement isn't just for storage. It's the family room, the play room, the home gym — a frequently enjoyed living space that deserves attention to great design, just like the rest of the house. The challenge with rooms that are below grade (underground) is that they are subject to environmental concerns like moisture and humidity that can damage certain floors.
