Why waterproof flooring will change your life!

Everyone would benefit from waterproof flooring because it gives the ultimate peace of mind. As we say on our website, "Beautiful homes begin at Carpet Mart and More Flooring Center," and waterproof vinyl flooring doesn’t disappoint. It’s stylish with a high-end look, is durable, easy to care for, and comes with a core that won't peel or ripple no matter how much water there is or for how long.

What are SPC and WPC floors?

SPC (stone plastic composite) and WPC (wood plastic composite) are engineered luxury vinyl floors. While luxury vinyl is waterproof, the SPC and WPC cores offer the highest protection levels from water and moisture. Your home will be fully intact, even if the flood occurred while you were away for weeks.

While SPC and WPC offer the same degree of waterproof capabilities, they are different in feeling. SPC floors are rigid core, and they are so durable that even subfloor imperfections won’t telegraph to the surface. SPC floors are appropriate for installation in bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and commercial spaces.

WPC floors have a more flexible, bounce-like quality that makes the material softer, more comfortable, and easier to stand on. They are also warmer. Like SPC floors, WPC floors can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and basements and are a popular choice for offices.

Both have true-to-life wood and stone images, and both have four layers, including a top, clear, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. Both can be installed with the floating floor technique where the pieces click together and hover over the subfloor with no nails or glue needed. Subfloors should be clean, dry, and level.

What is waterproof laminate flooring?

This has a special backing that absorbs liquid and keeps it from spreading, staining, and swelling. It works differently than vinyl. While this laminate is waterproof from the top, vinyl is waterproof both from the top and bottom, meaning that you can submerge it, and it will still be fine.
