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.
