There are several waterproof flooring options in the marketplace, and luxury vinyl is one of the best. It tolerates standing water so that it won't warp, peel, shrink or expand when exposed to water for an extended time.
JT Flooring in Fort Collins, CO, has a large selection of luxury vinyl planks and tiles in the latest designs. Shop in-store or at home.
Any plank or tile with a wood-plastic composite core is considered waterproof floors. A WPC core, protected by the backing layer, is composed of wood byproducts and plastic composites.
A foaming agent is added to provide cushioning, so the flooring is more comfortable to walk on. WPC flooring is generally installed in homes, while SPC flooring is installed in businesses.
Luxury vinyl that has a stone plastic composite core is almost indestructible. SPC flooring is the most durable vinyl floor covering available. The main ingredient is limestone instead of wood.
Like WPC flooring, SPC brands are designed with an interlocking tongue and groove system so that when planks or tiles are connected, a floating floor is constructed.
Wear layer is essential for waterproof floors
In addition to having a rigid core that tolerates water, multi-layer luxury vinyl flooring includes a surface wear layer that protects the wood, stone, or ceramic image layer from stains, scratches, and typical wear and tears.
Choose a brand with a 20-mil wear layer to assure durability. A thick wear layer is best since the floor must be replaced once this transparent covering is worn down.
