What makes Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
Water resistant luxury vinyl flooring means the floors can repel moisture from the surface, but eventually the core will soak up any moisture, which will cause it to be trapped and soak through the floor itself to your subfloor. Water resistant floors are a good option for rooms in your home that you are in often so you do not miss an accidental spill.
A waterproof floor forms a watertight barrier between the surface of your floor and your subfloor, and can resist moisture all the way through the core. Manufacturers use durable materials like limestone dust and PVC composites in the flooring to make the core, which allows moisture to evaporate and not cause unwanted damage. This waterproof core means your floors will not expand or warp due to moisture.
Where can you Install Waterproof Flooring?
Waterproof flooring can be installed anywhere in your home. That means you can have wood or tile look flooring installed in rooms like your basement, mudroom, kitchen and even bathroom. Waterproof luxury vinyl is made to look and feel just like real hardwood or stone, so you do not have to sacrifice function for style. Remember though, just because your flooring is waterproof that does not mean your subfloor is, but we can help you prevent any unwanted damage.
