Basement finishing – The most important factor to consider with any floor finish in a basement is humidity. If there is moisture, you should repair the cracks in the concrete floor and foundation, and then seal the floor with the water-resistant or latex-based epoxy mixture. Once the basement is resistant to moisture, you can choose from a wide variety of floor finishes.
The same type of epoxy paint sold to seal and garage color plants can be used in basement concrete floors. Epoxy provides a durable, durable finish in concrete, but the selection of colors is limited. Another option is to seal the floor then use latex paint, which is available in a wide variety of colors. The use of latex in a basement floor offers the same creative possibilities as painting walls, such as imitation finishes, mixing colors and a granite look. After it is cured, seal the latex with several layers of varnish to give a durable finish.
Before considering the wooden flooring for your basement, take steps to reduce the humidity levels down. Even in dry cellars, steam barriers, slats and insulation it is most likely necessary before a wooden floor is established. Laminates made of wood are more durable and resist deformation better than solid wood floors.
