What waterproof flooring options do I have?
Waterproof flooring tends to be more durable than standard types of flooring, especially if your household is very active or includes pets and children. Vogel's Carpets & Flooring offers high-quality waterproof flooring in Seattle, WA. Armstrong and COREtec are two of our favorite manufacturers.
Hardwood and carpet flooring have limitations that can be overcome by waterproof luxury vinyl. In addition to repelling moisture, the multi-layer planks and tiles resist abrasion and stains. The wear layer, especially if it has at least a 20-mil thickness, adequately protects the stone, wood, or ceramic image layer. Thus, this high-tech image is hard to wear down. A 25-year warranty often backs the best brands.
The backing layer cushions the core layer. Waterproof luxury vinyl usually has a wood plastic composite (WPC) core or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. The main ingredient in the former is wood flour, while the latter includes limestone. All components work together to create functional and realistic-looking planks and tiles. Flooring can be enhanced with random texturing. Choose Embossed in Register planks for texturing that is matched to the wood grain.
Conveniently, this attractive and versatile floor covering can be installed in three different ways. First, if you choose loose lay luxury vinyl, you can pick the flooring up and take it with you when you move! Second, planks and tiles, which butt together, use friction to grip the subfloor. Finally, glue-down brands stay firmly in place while floating floor brands interlock, and therefore, do not need to be fastened to the subfloor with adhesive.
