    A lot of the DIY guys on tv use the vinyl flooring... especially in areas where there might be water intrusion (like in a basement that might get flooded in the spring or during heavy rains)... they say that once the water goes away the vinyl flooring is fine.

    You can use laminate or hardwood but be sure your floor never gets damp from the humidity. To test for dampness,. place a plastic garbage bag on the floor, tape all sides and leave a few days to see if there is any moisture under the plastic. If there is you will need to put down the 2X2 foot square insulators which also make the floor damp proof.

    Any manufactured flooring would be perfect - Pergo, Armstrong, etc. This type of flooring isn't affected by changes in temperature and is a floating floor so they don't sit directly on a chilly concrete slab.

    Ceramic tile can be installed over concrete. I know this because after our basement flooded, we had new carpet laid down. Then we flooded again and kissed that brand new carpet good-by. We installed ceramic tiles after that. No more flooding. It wore well and we loved it.

    I love the new tile out there that looks like wood. It does not absorb moisture from your basement, if you ever have water damage you do not have to tear up and replace, cleans easy, low maintenance and doesnt show wear
