Luxury vinyl flooring is one of our favorite ways to floor, but here’s where it’s important to pay attention. It is often mistaken that all luxury vinyl flooring is waterproof. Many luxury vinyl options are made to be water-resistant, but some options are entirely waterproof. Knowing the difference can significantly help you when it comes down to buying a waterproof floor.
At Thompson’s Carpet One Floor & Home of Porterville, CA, you’ll encounter a wide, wide world of waterproof luxury vinyl plank and tile, including the hottest selections by Invincible, COREtec, and Karndean.
Many luxury vinyl floors come in water-resistant options suitable for places such as your kitchen and entryway. Water-resistant floors can repel moisture from the surface, but the core will eventually soak up any moisture. Water-resistant floors are a good option for spaces in your home that you often clean so they are not forgotten.
A waterproof floor repels any moisture, protecting both the floor itself as well as your subfloor. Manufacturers use limestone dust and PVC composites in the flooring that do not absorb moisture to make luxury vinyl’s core. Luxury vinyl floors won’t buckle, crack, or warp due to being exposed to moisture. You should always keep in mind that just because the flooring itself is waterproof does not mean your subfloor is waterproof.
