I used Allure last year when I renovated my moms house. We had a little trouble keeping the butt joints tight, but overall the floor came out nice. I read a review about someone who used it over concrete and they mentioned a considerable amount of mold developed underneath it.
The walls in the basement are wood paneling so adding more wood would be overkill unless I painted the walls. Laminate flooring will soak up water like a sponge, engineered flooring is suppose to be better but not ideal.
Ill look into the polypropylene carpet
