Basement Flooring That Withstands Moisture and Water Flooding

If a concrete swimming pool filled with water can look great indefinitely, so can your basement floor. If the basement gets flooded, there is no need to worry about the floor. A simple cleaning with squeegee and mop and the floor will look like new. After Hurricanes Katrina and Irene, we had positive reports that the only area that did not get damaged was the floor. Decorative Concrete Basement Flooring Options

Grind, Stain, and Seal

Most basements we come across have concrete floors in good condition. They are flat with the typical cracks but with minimal damage. We can grind floors in good condition with dustless grinding equipment. The purpose of grinding the floor is to sand the top layer and open the pores of the cement surface, allowing the stain to color the floor properly.

After the floor has been properly prepared, we can color it with stains and dyes. The result is like the images here with a natural marbleized appearance. Though many colors, including reds, blues, greens, and yellows, most people choose earth tones that easily match most interior walls. Another recommendation that might be suggested regarding the basement walls is to consider possibly waterproofing exterior basement walls also could be recommended alongside the interior ones to provide potentially better water damage protection. The final step is to seal the surface. We suggest our breathable epoxy coatings.

Concrete Overlays

A Micro-Topping is a thin polymer modified that will chemically and mechanically bond to the existing concrete. This is the perfect choice for an older basement floor because it will fill cracks and voids and provide a clean palette for staining. Concepts in Concrete has been installing MicroToppings in thousands of basements, retail stores, office buildings, theme parks, galleries, and more. If you want to add design elements, saw cuts can be applied to create the look of custom tile.

Self-Leveling Concrete

If your floor is uneven or is damaged, has carpet glue or tile, our Paolino designer floor can be applied at 1/4 – 3/8 inch thick. Self-levers can be colored and dyed just like our Micro-Toppings.

Moisture Vapor Treatment

For floors needing a moisture vapor barrier, we offer 2 different levels of protection.

So, the next time you are considering flooring options for your basement, look at concrete flooring. These floors are completely submergeable and floor resistant. There is no place for mold to grow because it can be under your vinyl or tile floor.
