Tile And Carpet In Basement

If you’re asking this question, you’ll first need to ensure your basement is waterproofed and/or that you truly have your heart set on basement carpeting. Most basements aren’t conducive to having quality, long-lasting carpet without enduring the cost to finish a basement. Of course, any finished basement is going to require eliminating any existing water problem you may have in your basement. Yet, even basements that don’t have any obvious water problems may suffer from high moisture levels. Leaky gutters, for example, can cause water to build around your basement concrete and moisture can be forced through even solid concrete walls. Basement by Finished Basement Company in Denver, CO Carpeting a Basement If you’re able to get your basement moisture to a reasonable level and keep it there, you should still take additional steps when carpeting a basement. Mold and mildew love moist, stagnant air, so you should try to create a dry, airy environment by installing an automatic dehumidifier and ceiling fans to keep the air moving. It will also help keep the room more comfortable. Carpet padding that has an anti-microbial built into it will also help keep the carpet from supporting mold or mildew. Although many additional considerations must be made before you can begin, once you’ve dealt with these discouraging factors, carpeting a basement shouldn’t require any specialized installation techniques. Choosing a loop, twist, or plush style carpet will also follow the same rules as your main floor carpeting. If you expect a lot of foot traffic, pet wear, or other abuse, you may not want to buy an expensive carpet that you’re going to need to replace in just a few years. On the other hand, if you’re able to take care of your carpet, paying a little extra for carpet that may actually last 15 years may be the right decision. Basement Carpet Fibers Along with carpet style, your choice of carpet fiber will influence the performance of your basement carpet. Consider carpet made from olefin face fiber. This product is very chemical-resistant in case you need to clean it with an aggressive cleaning solution (including bleach). Make sure the entire carpet is constructed of synthetic products only, not a jute-backed carpet. Jute backing is very similar to a potato sack, so you can guess how that would hold up to moisture. For all the possible problems associated with basement carpeting, the good news is that most basements aren’t exposed to direct sunlight. Many synthetic fibers fade under sunlight. If you’re able to keep moisture out of your basement, your carpet fibers should stay in good condition for many years. Basement by Mr. Handyman of Upper Fairfield County in Fairfield, CT Alternatives to Basement Carpet Carpeting a basement isn’t impossible, and if you like the soft feel of carpet fibers, it may very well be the answer for you. That said, even if your basement is unusually dry, some of the alternatives to basement carpet are likely to be cheaper flooring installations. Nearly all basements have either concrete floors or concrete subflooring. Concrete staining and finishing can create a smooth, decorative surface from your concrete that will also be warmer than you probably imagine. Or, you can throw down a few rugs in high foot traffic areas. Chances are refinishing your concrete floor will yield a sharper-looking, longer-lasting floor for less money. You can then use this money to put in a wet bar, flat screen TV, a nice billiards table, etc. Tips for a Long-Lasting Carpet Need to find a pro for your basement carpet?Find Pros No Comments Yet You can be the first to comment!

Kids’ Playroom Safety and sound issues are foremost in this room, and carpet emerges as the best choice. It cushions kids’ falls and takes the noise level down a notch. Some carpet is made from yarn that’s virtually nonabsorbent, which allows spills to be cleaned easily. Entryway Any type of floor covering will work in this area, since most people wipe their feet off on a mat before entering the house. “If it’s a high-traffic house with several kids and pets, I’d be more concerned with scratching (the flooring) than moisture,” Jennings says. “Hardwood’s still a good look for many homes, as well as ceramic tiles.” Bedroom The most private room in the house is still the domain of carpet, which dampens sound and feels softer underfoot than other floor coverings. “Carpet is textile for the floor,” Jennings says. “The construction of the fiber itself dictates how it performs underfoot. Choosing plush pile versus Berber is a cosmetic choice. Someone older, who’s more tentative on their feet, wants a firm feel underneath, so a harder finished carpet is best to avoid slippage.” Image courtesy of Shaw Floors Dining Room In most cases, the dining room is attached to the kitchen, so it makes sense to simply extend the flooring from one room to the next, whether you choose wood flooring, tile or cork. Image courtesy of Pergo Guest Bedroom While carpet is a popular choice for the bedroom, wood flooring, whether hardwood, engineered or laminate, can be a great alternative for a guest bedroom if you’re looking to add style. Choose a warm color and a defined texture to up the coziness factor. Add a premium underlayment for maximum sound reduction. Image courtesy of Pergo Library or Study A study or reading room should exude a sense of elegance and formal serenity. Wood floors in dark, rich colors help make that statement. If you’re on a budget, laminate is an affordable alternative to the real thing. Image courtesy of Pergo Living Room The flooring options for living rooms are many and should match the style of the house. Hardwood is timeless, and slate, terra cotta and carpet are also good choices. Bathroom Water splashed from the tub or shower and the high humidity in this room require flooring that won’t be affected by moisture. Laminates and hardwood floors, which absorb moisture, aren’t recommended, but ceramic tile is a good choice. And if you use natural stone or marble, seal them with a protective coating. Image courtesy of Daltile Media Room When watching television and movies or listening to music, the acoustics of a room are a factor. You don’t want to disturb others in adjoining rooms, and at the same time you want to enjoy hearing what you’re listening to. Carpet and cork are good choices where acoustics count. Avoid hardwood. Basement and Below Grade Before installing any flooring option, make sure there are no moisture issues with the concrete slab. If there are, laminate and wood wouldn’t be good choices, because they tend to absorb water. Resilient vinyl floors are often used in basements because vinyl is unaffected by moisture and is low maintenance. Engineered wood or laminate flooring, above a moisture barrier, will also work. If moisture isn’t an issue, carpet will help keep the room warm. Photo By: Geoffrey Hodgdon Kitchen Wood flooring and tile are popular choices for the kitchen, which may be affected by liquids hitting the floor during cooking, but Tom Jennings, technical adviser and former chairman of the World Floor Covering Association, recommends cork for those who cook a lot. “Cork has a similar finish to laminate but has resiliency, which matters if you’re going to be on your feet a lot,” he says. Cork is virtually nonabsorbent and moisture-proof, and it won’t burn. It comes in many patterns, making for a unique look. Jennings says the problem with using ceramic tile in the kitchen is that it adds weight and thickness to the floor, which can cause clearance issues with the refrigerator or stove areas.
