Why everyone wants waterproof flooring

Why everyone wants waterproof flooring

When people come into our showroom to ask about waterproof flooring, they, understandably, focus on that capability. After all, it doesn’t matter where you live, because we all have plenty of those “oops” moments, but let’s also not lose sight of the gorgeous style of these floors. Whether it is waterproof vinyl flooring or waterproof laminate flooring, you can be sure of getting the classic, rich, warm look of hardwood flooring that makes it as appropriate for the living and dining room as for the kitchen and bath.

Waterproof vinyl

The vinyl version is engineered to be thicker with a technologically advanced core, the WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) that won’t peel or ripple ever. These floors are watertight from bottom to top, meaning that you can spill on them or submerge them, and there are no time limits. We know someone who was away for three months, only to return home to find an appliance flood. He mopped up his waterproof vinyl, and the floor was completely undamaged.

Laminate: Just what the market’s been waiting for!

Sealants and construction features like the stable and ultra-water repellent HDF (high-density fiberboard) core make it impossible for liquid to penetrate through the layers and to the core. This eliminates staining, peeling, or rippling. However, be aware that there are two versions, including the original water-resistant (but not waterproof) one, so when you see us be sure to specify which one you want.
