Luxury vinyl flooring vs. waterproof flooring

At first, the title might seem a little misleading. After all, luxury vinyl flooring is waterproof. However, certain differences might make one product better for your specific needs than many others. Knowing what they are and how they work is vital for educated purchasing.

For instance, luxury vinyl is an excellent option in many spaces, especially where striking beauty is desired. However, you can also get that beauty in other waterproof products with various characteristics. To find out more, we invite you to keep reading and then plan to visit us at your convenience.

What to consider with luxury vinyl flooring vs. waterproof flooring

Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring offers excellent resistance against water damage, mold and mildew growth, and any kind of temperature-related damages as well. Planks, tile, and sheet versions are equally as protective, offering layers of protection and a core material that never swells, peels, or buckles. Even in basements and laundry rooms, you’ll have great peace of mind with it in place.

Other terms you might find here when you visit our luxury vinyl flooring store are wood plastic composite (WPC) and stone plastic composite (SPC), both of which are also waterproof. WPC is created using wood resins and composites, while SPC is thicker, less flexible, and utilizes stone materials in place of the wood in WPC. Both are waterproof and work well in a variety of spaces.

Other waterproof materials include porcelain and ceramic tile, and some forms of natural stone. With a whole new set of characteristics, depending on the materials chosen, their waterproof abilities might be dependant on sealants or specific installation procedures but are no less waterproof in their final state.
