Waterproof flooring gives you peace of mind

We all have those "oops moments" when we drop, spill, track in soggy towels from the pool, or track snow, ice, and moisture in on our shoes. They can all ruin a floor, but when you have waterproof flooring, it’s just not such a big problem anymore. The options are just as stylish as they are functional, so please read further to see what flooring alternatives work for you.

Waterproof vs. water-resistant flooring

There is a difference between waterproof and water-resistant flooring. Waterproof flooring is impervious to liquid and is constructed of waterproof materials, not needing any special coatings to help it. A good example would be porcelain tile. When something is resistant to liquid, it means that, unless immediately wiped, it will break through the barrier and soak the core.

Stylish options great for any room in the house

1. Porcelain tile remains one of the most popular bathroom options because it can stand up to water and humidity. Constructed with a non-porous clay that gives it a low absorption rate, porcelain comes in countless colors and designs. It can also be made to look like anything, including wood and stone. 2. Luxury vinyl offers images of wood, stone, and tile taken with high-definition photography, including micro beveling and embossing. It is so authentic that some have trouble discerning it from the real thing. An additional design option can also be cut into plank (LVP) or tile-sized squares (LVT). 3. Waterproof vinyl flooring is a newer version of luxury vinyl LVF), engineered to be thicker and more durable and constructed with the WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) cores. These won't peel or ripple no matter how much water there is or for how long and, since this is a version of LVF, it has all the same style and characteristics as the original version. This includes easy care and uncomplicated installation. 4. Rigid core flooring is for you if you want the true feeling of authentic wood. They are also called stone core LVP, an engineered luxury vinyl plank constructed with the SPC core. While SPC is denser and more inflexible, WPC is more resilient, like that of vinyl flooring. 5. New to the market, waterproof laminate flooring is constructed entirely without wood, making it spill-proof. It is now appropriate for installation anywhere, even in kitchens and baths where it was once avoided due to water/wood issues.
