“If we want something with a cool hardwood or stone look that’s moisture resistant and durable, what should we do?”

“Dear PoPville,

Moving into a new house with a CARPETED basement. We don’t like the look or feel, and it doesn’t seem to be the right choice for a basement, dry as it may seem.

If we want something with a cool hardwood or stone look that’s moisture resistant and durable, what should we do? Thinking about vinyl block – seems like some of it looks pretty good.

Also, any good local contractors or sources for materials or other resources anyone could recommend? Anything to avoid at all costs? Appreciate the help (even though the dogs won’t have a chance to participate in one of their favorite sports – sneak peeing on carpeting)!”
