Waterproof flooring is great for every room in your home

Waterproof flooring is great for every room in your home

Your kitchen, mudroom, and bathrooms benefit most from waterproof flooring, where activity is the highest and moisture can be expected.

Consider, too, that waterproof floors might be best for the laundry room and dining room. Agler Kitchen, Bath & Floors in Stuart, FL, offers various waterproof styles.

Waterproof vinyl flooring

The best luxury vinyl flooring is 100 percent waterproof, which means the floor will not peel, warp, shrink, or expand when exposed to water.

Residential waterproof floors typically feature a wood-plastic composite (WPC) core. Because of the rigid core, this type of luxury vinyl flooring feels similar to the material it mimics; it's not flexible like standard vinyl flooring.

Waterproof laminate flooring

Unlike vinyl flooring, waterproof laminate flooring does not tolerate standing water; its limitations are clearly stated in the manufacturer's instructions. Laminate planks and tiles repel water for a specific amount of time, usually about one day. A laminate floor may become damaged if water or liquid spills are not wiped up within the given period.

Installing waterproof floors

Be aware that the type of subfloor in your home is not a problem since most luxury vinyl and laminate planks and tiles are designed for floating floor installation. With no attachment to a subfloor, waterproof flooring can be placed on top of a cement slab and most existing hard surface flooring. Underlayment muffles noise and enhances floor performance.
