The many benefits of waterproof flooring
The peace of mind is
reason enough to want this flooring! No
matter what, we all have those moments when we drop or spill, and suddenly,
these things don't seem like such a big deal. Waterproof flooring is so popular
it's now become a trend.
Waterproof vinyl flooring
This is what it means when the flooring expert
asks you if you want "waterproof flooring." This is an even more
advanced version of luxury vinyl (LVF), engineered to be thicker, more durable,
and using the WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite)
cores. However, you'll see the same high-end style with true-to-life images of
wood, stone, or taken with digital photography.
Like LVF, it has micro beveling and embossing to add
depth, dimension, and textured features such as wire-brush have scraped,
weathered, and distressed. It, too, follows the trends, whether it's
whitewashed wood or granite, marble or travertine look you desire. If you prefer tile, you'll find chevron,
herringbone, encaustic-styles, and filigree patterns, and the material can be
cut to mimic hardwood boards or groutable squares for stone and tile echoes
Does water-resistant flooring mean it’s waterproof?
No. Waterproof means impervious to liquid. The
flooring is constructed of entirely waterproof materials, in this case, vinyl
and the unique cores, and it has the capability from bottom to top, meaning
that it can be submerged or spilled on. When something is resistant to water,
it repels but must be wiped quickly; otherwise, liquid can break the barrier and
seep through to the core.
