What Makes Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
Finding out your floors are not waterproof the hard way can be an unfortunate thing. We can help show you the difference between a waterproof floor and a water resistant floor. A water resistant luxury vinyl floor means the floors can repel moisture from the surface but the core will eventually soak up any moisture. Install water resistant luxury vinyl in places around your home you are in often so they are not forgotten about.
With waterproof flooring, you now have a barrier between your floors and subfloors. A waterproof floor resists moistures from the surface all the way through to the core. Manufacturers use materials such as limestone dust and PVC composites in the flooring that do not absorb moisture to make luxury vinyl’s core. This waterproof core means your floors will not expand or warp due to moisture. You should always keep in mind that just because the flooring itself is waterproof, that does not mean your subfloor is.
Where can you Install Waterproof Flooring
Waterproof luxury vinyl can be installed anywhere in your home. That means you can install luxury vinyl 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. Luxury vinyl features such authentic looks that you can also install them in bedrooms and living rooms and your guests will never know the difference.
