Waterproof flooring is a smart option for many homeowners. The protection it provides makes it possible for busy homes to have great looking floors for years ahead.

You may have heard that luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is waterproof, and that’s true. But other factors determine which specific material you should use based on your unique requirements and preferences.

The facts about waterproof flooring

The biggest difference between waterproof and water-resistant flooring is time. Water-resistant materials do not fend off the effects of water forever but do give you more time to clean up spills, dampness, and moisture.

When dealing with luxury vinyl that protects you from water damage, you'll hear specific terminology. Wood-plastic composite (WPC) uses wood resins but no real wood materials to create a core that stands up very well to liquids.

Stone plastic composite (SPC) utilizes ground rock and other materials to create a wonderfully rigid flooring that stabilizes and protects.

And 100% vinyl core materials use the same types of vinyl materials used to create the rest of the luxury vinyl flooring. This product can easily withstand even flood conditions, providing absolute peace of mind.

All of these great core options work to protect your floors from cracking, peeling, molding, or developing foul odors after being exposed to dampness. And each has characteristics that offer different benefits, including ease of installation.

Water-resistant flooring can easily be installed in any space in your home to give you complete peace of mind for even the most active households. But you'll see the protection in basements, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens.
