Yes what? Has it been fixed so it's not likely to happen again? Do you have insurance for basement water backup? You have to buy it separately from regular homeowners insurance.

If not, I would not suggest Allure, heck, it's vinyl, it has to be glued with mastic. Actually there's been so many complaints that I might think twice even for above grade.

Porcelain it always your best choice, but back to basics, why did it flood, and is it fixed?
