Finding the waterproof flooring you need

Finding great waterproof flooring might be easier than you think, especially when considering all the available options. These floors cater to more than just a need for protection against water damage. They also work to beautify any area into which they are installed, so be sure to read along for more information.

Waterproof or water-resistant floors?

We know that waterproof floors can keep you safe from water damage, buckled or warped flooring, and mold and mildew growth, which is a perfect option in damp, humid areas. But homeowners want to know if water-resistant flooring is just as valuable for these areas. The truth is the two materials are quite different.

While waterproof materials are entirely impervious to water in all its forms, water-resistant materials only give you a certain amount of time in which to clean up the moisture. Protection times vary, with some offering up to 72 hours before your floors begin to take on damage. When the utmost protection is required, it’s always best to choose waterproof materials, especially in basements and laundry rooms.

Now, more than ever, waterproof flooring offers some of the most beautiful décor-matching options available. Luxury vinyl plank and tiles, for instance, show the appearance of solid wood, stone, and porcelain tile, in a variety of color options and finish types that are sure to help your rooms look their best. They are also most likely to help you remain current, even through trend changes.

Waterproof floors offer a quick and easy installation, which means you'll be walking on your floors sooner than later. If you have questions about your specific material's installation procedure, feel free to ask. We'll go over every detail, so you know what to expect.
