What makes Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
Knowing the differences between waterproof and water resistant luxury vinyl is very important in your purchasing decision.it is never a fun surprise to find out your floors are not as waterproof as you thought. Just about all luxury vinyl floors feature some sort of moisture resistance. Water resistant floors are made to repel moisture from the surface, but the core will eventually soak up any moisture. Water resistant floors are best for places around your home you are in often so they are not forgotten about.
Waterproof flooring protects itself and your subfloor by repelling any type of moisture and allowing it to evaporate before causing damage. Since most waterproof floors are made with manmade materials, luxury vinyl floors won’t buckle, crack, or warp due to being exposed to moisture. Waterproof flooring is the best option for families who have pets in their homes. Pets have accidents and you cannot always get to them right away, so waterproof flooring takes away the worry of your floors being damaged by unexpected spills.
Where can you Install Waterproof Flooring?
Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring can be installed anywhere in your home including the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room and even entryways. Luxury vinyl flooring looks so much like natural hardwood and stone that you can even install it in your bedroom or living room without being able to tell the difference.
Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring comes in a floating installation or a click-lock installation. Floating floors are the most popular choice because they are quick and simple to install and can be walked on the same day.
