No. Waterproof means that the product is impervious to liquid; it is made of waterproof materials, so there are no special coatings. Water-resistant means that, while a flooring might repel water for a short time, it will break through the barrier, soak and stain. We want you to know what you're getting when exploring waterproof flooring in Syracuse, NY, so be sure to visit us.
Waterproof vinyl: the highest level of moisture protection
This is a newer, more advanced version of luxury vinyl (LVF) that, although relatively new to the market, has already captured the attention of retailers and consumers. This is engineered to be thicker, durable and uses the SPC (stone plastic composite) or WPC (wood plastic composite) cores. Both cores are technologically advanced and won't peel or ripple ever, no matter how much water there is or for how long.
Because it’s a version of luxury vinyl flooring (which is also waterproof), it has all the same style. Nature-inspired wood, stone, or ceramic tile images are taken digitally; micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks. Just like LVF, waterproof vinyl follows all the trends, so you can get anything you want, from gray wood look floors to marble surfaces and more.
Other waterproof options include:
1.Tile: This time-honored flooring material has been used as a building material for centuries.
2.Waterproof laminate: This is constructed without wood, making it appropriate for any room in the house, including kitchens & baths, which were once avoided because of the wood/water issue. It is spill-proof, eliminating concerns about soaking and staining. Original laminate remains popular, so please specify which version you want.
3.Stone core LVP. This is a luxury vinyl plank with the SPC (stone plastic composite) core, making it durable and waterproof with a rigid feeling of a hard surface, like wood or stone.
