Waterproof flooring has been around for quite some time and has been a wonderful addition to the homes of many. It offers extensive peace of mind in situations where other types of flooring are likely to become damaged over time after exposure to spills, dampness, humidity, and moisture. The good news is that you can have this kind of peace of mind as well, including all the benefits that go along with it.


You may hear some water-resistant floor coverings called waterproof, but there are major differences between the two. While floors that are resistant to water and dampness give you more time to clean and dry the environment, floors that are truly impervious to water can withstand the implications nearly indefinitely. If you spill something on flooring that is resistant to water, given enough time, the water will soak in and create damage.


Waterproof flooring is created with a completely impervious core, sometimes called WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite). These core materials offer a more rigid floor covering, but they will also never peel, swell, or expand, leaving you with great looking floors, no matter how much you spill on them. To make them even more long-lasting, they are topped with a protective wear layer that guards against stains, scuffs, scratches, and more. You’ll have great looking floors for the life of your flooring.


Other benefits include an excellent variety of appearance options, many of which replicate real natural materials, and an easy maintenance and cleaning routine. They are also easy to install, but we still advise you to allow a team of professionals to cover this procedure. In the event that something was to go wrong, you would be completely covered.
