Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?

Homeowners love luxury vinyl because of its durability and authentic natural looks. Many luxury vinyl options come in water resistant options, and others are made to be entirely waterproof. Regardless if you have pets at home or just need a floor that is easy to care for, you should consider installing waterproof luxury vinyl flooring in your home. Our experts at Rich’s Carpet One Floor & Home in Hamilton Township are here to help you design your space around your new floors. Below we go over what waterproof luxury vinyl is and the benefits that come along with installing it in your home.

What Makes Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?

Our flooring professionals will show you the difference between a waterproof floor and a water resistant floor. Eliminate any unwanted headaches down the road by purchasing waterproof flooring. Water resistant luxury vinyl flooring means the floors can repel moisture from the surface, but eventually the core will soak up any moisture, which will cause it to be trapped and soak through the floor itself to your subfloor. Water resistant floors are a good option for rooms in your home that you spend time in often so they are not forgotten.

A waterproof floor forms a watertight barrier between the surface of your floor and your subfloor, and resists moisture all the way through the core. Manufacturers use materials such as limestone dust and PVC composites in the flooring to make the core, which allows moisture to evaporate and not cause unwanted damage. This waterproof core means your floors will not expand or warp due to moisture.

Where Can Waterproof Flooring Be Installed?

Waterproof flooring 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. Remember though, just because your flooring is waterproof that does not mean your subfloor is, but we can help you prevent any unwanted damage.
