What is one of the most common problems we find when touring a perspective client's house? Carpet below grade. We know that concrete doesn't feel great underfoot, but that doesn't mean that carpet is the best solution for your basement.
Whether moisture from below or liquid from above...sooner or later that carpet and the underlying pad will get wet. Save yourselves a lot of money and trouble and use LVT.
If the dog has an accident, the washing machine hose comes loose, a pipe bursts, or anything else happens, which eventually it will, you can thank us for thinking ahead.
