What to expect from waterproof flooring

Waterproof flooring often gets passed over simply because homeowners think they don’t really need it. While it’s true that this material is great in spaces where flooding, leaks, spills, and accidents are common, it’s actually much like an insurance policy, offering peace of mind like you’ve never known. At the same time, it provides gorgeous designing options and abilities with other benefits that will make it more than worth the extra upfront cost associated with it.

Waterproof flooring vs. water resistant flooring

Many homeowners ask the very important question, “Are waterproof flooring and water resistant flooring the same thing?”The truth is, they do share some similarities. Both will give you ample time to clean up spills or accidents before damage sets in. But the real determining factor on what makes one “resistant” and the other “waterproof”is time.

In most cases, flooring that is resistant to water gives you about 24 hours before the moisture begins to seep into the under layers of the flooring. Over the course of time, as more moisture and dampness finds its way underneath, that damage will start to show in buckling, cracking, and other visible problems. It can also create offensive odors as bacteria, mold, and mildew begin to grow.

Waterproof flooring, however, is 100% resistant to water, its effects, and any damage that could possibly happen. With materials that have a 100% vinyl core, the flooring can easily withstand flood conditions and be dried off and reinstalled at a later date. This is true protection against water damage, from any moisture source, and offers you extensive peace of mind for the homeowner.

To determine exactly which floor covering is best for your home, our associates will discuss your specific preferences and requirements. We’ll make sure you have the best materials and services and a finished product you can be proud of.
