Hi

Currently, the flooring for my basement are the original wood strips. I am planning to replace it with porcelain tiles. However, I am concert with the stability and long-term effects if I replace it with porcelain tiles. I believe there is at least a 3 inch space between the the earth and the the most lower portion of the house. I am concern about moisture that might develop and the longterm effect it might have on the foundation of the house. What do you suggest in a scenario like this?

There is always the risk of popping tiles due to moisture and hydrostatic pressure. I have found epoxy/stone flooring in basements to be a good looking alternative to tile. Goldenlook out of Texas can find an installer in your area.
