Nothing in your home endures as much traffic and constant use as your floor. Day in and day out, it must withstand shoes, pets, spills, and more, an unending cycle of wear and tear that can wreak havoc on your once beautiful flooring choice.
For years, homeowners had a limited selection when it came to their flooring: carpeting, which retains dirt, allergens and wears down with time; inexpensive vinyl or hardwood, which can be scuffed, rubbed, and discolored; or tile, which can crack or break. Although flooring is often an aesthetic choice when it comes to a homeowner’s particular tastes, a fairly new alternative has lately become more popular for having few of the drawbacks that can often detract from other flooring options.
What is Waterproof Flooring?
There are several names for this flooring, things like “Rigid Core”, “Luxury Vinyl”, “WPC” and many more. All of these fall under the latest technology in “click-and-float” floors. Waterproof flooring is very much like a laminate in that the finish is an “image” of a wood, tile or stone floor. However, no matter what type of this flooring you choose, it is installed over some type of core that is impermeable to water or any other “liquids” you expose it to.
Waterproof flooring is so named because it is a multi-layered fusion of materials designed to resist the weathering that some other flooring standards cannot, while still maintaining the elegance and attractiveness of more expensive types.
Though nothing is scratch-proof, these are as scratch resistant as flooring comes! The result is a solid, rigid-core, floating floor system that clicks together, floats, and boasts some of the most realistic look-and-feel finishes available in flooring today.
Are Waterproof Floors the Best Choice For You?
Every type of flooring has its pros and cons, but WPC flooring directly addresses many of the drawbacks inherent in other popular styles. Thanks to the bottom underpad, it is much more comfortable to walk on than vinyl, hardwood, or tile. Unlike hardwood, the flooring is waterproof, so you won’t have to worry about it sagging, warping, or cracking. It’s very easy to clean, as opposed to most brands of carpeting, which often require expensive professional cleaning to handle spills or periods of prolonged use. Perhaps most important of all, waterproof floors are easy to install and reasonably priced, often less expensive than similar-looking hardwood or high-end tile.
