When your basement floods, the floor is the first thing that needs to be replaced. This is often the most expensive part of a water damage claim. When considering flooring, it’s best to have something that durable and waterproof. Any steps you can take to reduce the amount of a water claim will help protect your insurance rates in the long run.
Elite Flooring Gallery (www.eliteflooringgallery.com) in Chantilly, Virginia is a client of ours, and they recommend Luxury Vinyl Flooring for basements. It’s an affordable waterproof and moisture proof flooring option that has great warmth and texture underfoot. Luxury Vinyl Flooring comes in Luxury Vinyl Planks that look like hardwood and Luxury Vinyl Tile that looks like tile, natural stone and concrete. Both LVT and LVP are designed to hold up in spaces that may have moisture (such as basements, kitchens, and bathrooms).
Advantages of LVF over other types of floorings:
• More durable, holds up better to scratch
• Waterproof and moisture proof
• Costs less
• Warmer on feet
• Easier on feet
• Less noisy
• Won’t crack
• Easier to clean
