Vinyl tile on concrete basement floor

badgergrrlJune 3, 2011

We're thinking of tiling the laundry room in our basement, which is currently bare concrete. Should it be sealed first?

The basement is dry, but does get humid/sorta dank during the summer (nothing a couple of dehumidifiers can't handle).

We weren't going to use anything to fancy, just some of the "nicer" peel and stick tile from HD/Menards (TrafficMaster resilient tile or something similar).
