What’s the best basement flooring system?
Remodeling a 1500sq.ft. walkout that previously had carpet on the concrete. We want to do the kitchen and bathroom in tile or stone and the rest of the area in wall-wall carpet. The only ptroduct I’ve found thats meets my requirements are Delta Fl with t&g plywood for the carpeted area and Schluter¯-DITRA-HEAT for the tile/stone area. Not fond of the t&g plywood in the basement as everything else will be mold proof. Are there other options beside inorganic individual tiles or is the Delta Fl system reliable? In the 17 years we lived here, never had water in the basement and the foundation has a perimieter drain that gravity flows downhill from the house.
