What is the best flooring for basements for house in north Coquitlam?
Is it concrete?, We seal and/or put a vapor barrier down on basement floors. Then you can put underlay/carpet directly on that, laminate or vinyl click flooring can be used if moisture rated for basements. I don't recommend hardwood in basements. There is a subfloor product called "dri-core" that can also be used and it keeps flooring 3/4" off the concrete. In the old days we used to install a wood and plywood subfloor over concrete but so many products are now basement rated you don't need it. The west coast has more moisture so probably sealer or a dri-core sub floor is best. If you have wood floored basement and its a dry insulated space, anything can be installed.
In my basement, I did a coated concrete finish. If I were to do it again, I might just do a grind and seal on it. Depending what part of the country you are in, that might play well to the market OR.... people might not understand.
Probably best to just carpet it. Something that makes the basement seem "warm". Especially if you are in a colder climate.
