What type of flooring

My husband and i are putting a small apartment in our garage and need a vinyl flooring tha can be placed over radiant heated concrete. Some have suggested resiliant vinyl like the allure trafficmaster. Any other suggestions?

What type of flooring

Have you thought about tile? You could get some on clearance from a tile supplier - I am sure the square footage needed is small.

It will hold up better and longer than vinyl. And tile is proven and tested over radiant heat.

Thanks for the reply. I would love tile, but husband and I had very bad experiences in our home with cracking, etc, even after shoring up floor joists, adding the hardiboard etc. Even though these would not be problems on the concrete, he is not enthused.
