I'm about to undertake another basement remodel. With our first, we simply stained the concrete floor. We really liked the look of it. However, it still would bring in moisture at times.
This time, I'm considering tile. Would adding tile in any way help reduce the potential of moisture migrating through the floor? Or should I just assume that grout won't be any type of blocker anyways.
What if I painted the floor with a product like Redgard first? Overkill?
I may also go with vinyl plank flooring...which I assume WOULD act as a barrier.
