The moisture issue has to be solved first and independently before a flooring option is chosen. When it comes to flooring options, I'm a huge fan of LVP for a couple of reasons. The first is that is extremely cheap for high quality and looks like real hardwood. Second, LVP is inherently waterproof. This is great for a lot of basements that open up to a pool area and are going to have a lot of traffic because of that. That being said, you shouldn't leave water sitting on any flooring surface for days or weeks on end without wiping it up. Then you'll have to call your insurance adjuster. Finally, there are a large number of options containing Aluminum Oxide in their finish. This the of the hardest compounds we have and it strengthens the wear layer to point where the plank is nearly scratch impervious. These are some of my favorite reasons to pick LVP.

Here's a link to one of the most helpful blogs I've been able to find in my research if you're interested in learning more!: https://www.reallycheapfloors.com/blog/what-is-luxury-vinyl-plank-flooring/

Basement flooring is the common issue faced by most of the house owners. Try to create bright and warm flooring for more appealing look. We planned to change our flooring with concrete floors and for more details we contacted http://www.pcwoodfloors.com/ the experts of flooring. Even the prices are reasonable and long term investment. Such floor is one of the most durable and quickly addresses water issues.

seweing kit and a glue strip or sealent under the seam without looking at it. I would call a capet install compamy and have them look at it for sure. Find out what the cause is before the remedy. Gavigan Homes uses Lowes for install

Wood on the enrty will help stop it, also find the end of the part of the carpet that has begun to unravel and cut it with a sharp knife or clip with a sissors and place a drop of glue on the end down in the carpet, stay off it until it dries. That should work....

I probably would not recomend it.  A laminate floor is a floating floor and the flex, expansion and contraction of both as well as the hollow sound you can have with a laminate may give you undesireable results.  Laminates come out very easily and I feel it worth your while to remove the 1st laminate to elimate any future floor structural issues and install the new floor to the manufacturer's specifications.

Tyler,

It sounds like the existing laminate flooring is solid and free from flex. If so, you will have no problem installing the new laminte over the old. You will want to use a sound absorbing pad underneath to avoid a hollow sound as well as potential squeeks between the 2 laminate surfaces. Best of luck!

I would try to find out the manufacturer of the product and follow their instructions.

Start with a washcloth and some rubbing alcohol and gently wipe down where the scratches are.  Take a cotton swab and go through each scratch with some rubbing alcohol to make sure they are cleaned out.  Purchase a floor repair wax kit from your local hardware store (I recommend Picobello Flooring Repair Kit).  Using the putty knife, apply wax to scratches and ensure its all the way inside the cracks.  Once you are done, take the flat edge of knife and scrape off any excess wax. Last step just gently wipe repaired areas with a cloth to wipe up any residual wax.  

For cleaning the floors, make sure you are using a damp (not soaking) mop with a small ammount of floor cleaner.

Hope that helps!
