We just had a rare flash flood which raised the water table and forced water into our basement between the floor and wall. It was a finished basement with carpeting. We don't plan to put carpeting back in but would like something nice looking that would not have to be removed if this ever happened again. It previously was a completly dry basement since 1993. Thanks for any help.
