Recommended flooring for walk out basement

A client installed laminate flooring. Installation was too tight to the walls, not allowing for any movement ... and the floor buckled. In addition, the basement flooded due to excess rain. What is a good replacement flooring that can go on a concrete slab of a subfloor (in required), that would work for situation like this? I' thinking floor tile, industrial weight.

Tile would be a good choice.

Ceramic tile would be my first choice,too.

Most of the basements I have done in recent years are either full ceramic or partial--walk ways and utility rooms.

Easy to do--nice area rugs in the seating area---looks classy.
