Over the years, waterproof floors have become increasingly sought after; waterproof vinyl flooring has become a trend.
Technological advances have resulted in manufacturers creating true-to-life designs of wood-and-stone- tile looks. They also come with ultra-strong cores, giving them extra durability and moisture protection.
SPC and WPC
The core is essentially the floor itself. When it gets soaked, it peels, ripples and stains. At that point, the entire floor needs to be replaced.
That’s all eliminated with waterproof floors that have WPC pr SPC cores. In addition, stone-plastic-composite and wood plastic composite won't peel or ripple no matter how much water there is or for how long.
Both are graded for commercial use. Also, SPC has a solid, rigid feeling underfoot while WPC is more flexible and resilient.
About luxury vinyl
The vinyl itself is waterproof. Luxury vinyl comes with the traditional vinyl composites core that can be submerged or spilled on without consequence.
One of the most stylish waterproof flooring options, this offers amazingly realistic images of wood, stone, and tile. As a result, the floors have depth, dimension, and textured looks.
They have an added design option: They can be cut into long planks to mimic hardwood or square, tile-sized pieces for tile and stone.
More about textures
Through the technological marvel of embossing, brushed, hand-scraped, distressed, and embossed-in-register (EIR) textures are available.
EIR might be the most realistic yet. It refers to the little indentations that exactly match those of the image.
