The benefit of waterproof floors

Though it’s relatively new to the flooring industry, waterproof flooring offers benefits that put it above many traditional types of flooring for areas that are prone to damage from spills or leaks. Waterproof flooring has a dense extruded waterproof core which gives it a unique balance of strength and resilience. It is 100% waterproof and will not delaminate or swell when exposed to moisture or spills.

Waterproof flooring is resilient

This unique flooring type resists scratches, dents and stains. Many have an impenetrable vinyl backing that is laid with a waterproof adhesive which protects from water penetration. Because of its special construction, it holds advantages over traditional floor coverings used in areas prone to spills.

Waterproof flooring is easy to clean

Waterproof floors have no grime or dirt traps, making it exceptionally easy to clean. It can mimic the look of your favorite floors including wood and tile. We recommend using the manufacturer's cleaning products to keep your floors looking their best.

Discover the benefits of waterproof flooring

There are few places in the world that understand the importance of waterproof flooring quite as well as we do here in Southern Florida. Sadly, water damage to floors is an all too common occurrence here, which makes having a waterproof floor all the more important for Floridians.

Luckily, there are quite a few attractive and functional options available on the market to fill the need for floors that can withstand ambient humidity and, most importantly, standing water.

Waterproof vinyl plank/tile flooring

Luxury Vinyl Plank/Tile is a layered flooring material that is designed to mimic the look of natural hardwood or stone flooring. The base layer is composed of PVC, provides structural support to the material, and adds to the overall stability of the product. A high resolution printed image is layered over the base which is then covered in a protective coating called the "wear layer".

LVP/LVT is a very popular choice of flooring for rooms like basements, kitchens, and bathrooms where there is a reasonable expectation of increased moisture or standing water. This style of flooring performs much the same way that traditional hardwood does, with the exception of being slightly softer. This makes it a popular choice among customers with joint problems, who find other flooring options too hard to stand and walk on for extended periods of time.

Wood-plastic composite: another top choice in waterproof flooring

Wood-Plastic Composite flooring (WPC) is a relative newcomer to the flooring scene. This material is luxury vinyl flooring taken to the next level. It is made from wood fiber or wood flour that is mixed with heated thermo plastics, that are then either extruded or injection molded into the desired shapes. The resultant product is then often added to a cork underlay, which adds softness to the completed product, as well as a certain degree of sound and temperature insulation.

This extremely durable flooring option is easy to clean, resistant to fading from UV exposure, and, since it is often made with ground wood by-products, is not a contributor to deforestation.
