Waterproof flooring in a Brooklyn, NY home from Buono's Flooring

What is waterproof flooring?

Waterproof floors can come in many materials, and it protects against water and moisture, even in basements and laundry rooms and kitchens. The question you may have is, what is it exactly? Let’s look at one of the materials that fall under the waterproof category.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury Vinyl Flooring is one of the most popular types of waterproof floors on the market today. This type of flooring features a waterproof core that gives it the ability to ignore spills, stains, humidity, and moisture. It takes no damage whatsoever.

It is a vinyl core that is either a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or stone plastic composite (SPC). The stone composite is much more rigid than the wood composite. These composite materials are made from PVC, a popular construction material that is naturally waterproof. An image layer, or design layer, has the 3D photograph of the wood, stone, or tile pressed together.

If you have pets or children in the home, it’s worth a second look at waterproof floors. The maintenance of waterproof flooring, especially LVF, is relatively easy. In addition to the waterproof benefit, LVF is amazingly attractive. It’s exceptionally durable against day-to-day wear and, if taken care of, can easily last two or three decades. Many LVF floors come with a lifetime guarantee.
