Waterproof flooring prevents potential problems

Waterproof flooring minimizes messes caused by rambunctious pets, exuberant cooks, and leaking sinks and appliances. Ceramic, vinyl, and waterproof laminate flooring do not sustain damage when wet, and lifespan is not shortened. You can find practical and low-maintenance flooring at Vogel's Carpet & Flooring, located in Seattle, Washington. We have been offering high-quality flooring to area homeowners and business owners for over 35 years.

Waterproof vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl planks mimic hardwood, and luxury vinyl tiles imitate hardwood, stone, and ceramic. Planks and tiles have four layers: backing, core, design, and wear. A thick wear layer, which can’t be easily worn down, will protect the high-tech design layer from scratches and stains for decades. A 20+ mil wear layer stands up to heavy traffic. This durable flooring can be installed anywhere in the home. Waterproof vinyl flooring is also available in sheets that are cut from rolls. Sheet vinyl is a favorite budget-friendly flooring for kitchens and bathrooms.

Waterproof laminate flooring

Laminate flooring shares some similarities with luxury vinyl flooring. It has multiple layers, including a design layer that mimics natural flooring materials. Most brands are designed for floating floor installation, although glue-down brands are available. Wood-based laminate is available in standard and waterproof brands. In contrast to vinyl flooring, laminate can repel water only for the amount of time noted in the manufacturer's specifications. Typically, floors can be safely exposed to water for up to 30 hours.

Ceramic tile flooring

Glazed ceramic is waterproof, and porcelain, a type of ceramic, is inherently waterproof. Ceramic is made of coarse clay, while porcelain is composed of fine kaolin clay. The clay is molded into a tile shape and then hardened in a high-temperature kiln. Ceramic tile tends to come in neutral colors and standard sizes. Superior porcelain, which is harder and denser than ceramic, comes in many sizes, colors, and designs. Wood-look and stone look designs are popular. Porcelain, the most durable tile material available, is more costly than ceramic.

The installation team at Vogel's Carpet & Flooring travels to Seattle, WA, Bellevue, WA, Kirkland, WA, Edmonds, WA, and nearby areas. An in-home estimate for a waterproof flooring upgrade is free. In addition to installation, we provide an area rug binding service. Consider placing a rug or two on your new hard surface flooring. We turn a carpet remnant into an area rug by cutting the remnant to the requested size and finishing the edges, so the rug doesn't unravel. To begin your waterproof flooring project, you can contact us via email, phone, or showroom visit.
