This newer version of luxury vinyl is engineered to be thicker and more durable with a technologically advanced core, WPC (wood plastic composite), or SPC (stone plastic composite). These cores won't peel or ripple ever, no matter how much water they're exposed to or for how long. Since it's a version of luxury vinyl (LVF), it follows all industry trends. It has the same style and design innovations, including images taken with digital photography, micro beveling, and embossing. Like LVF, it can be cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards or groutable squares to echo stone and tile.
Laminate, which has long been considered a popular alternative to genuine wood, now offers a waterproof version, which is just what the market has been waiting for. Unique construction, including the ultra-stable high-density fiberboard (HDF) core, makes it impossible for spills to absorb. This eliminates any concern about soaking, staining, and peeling.
Both waterproof vinyl and laminate are low maintenance, requiring only daily sweeping and periodic mopping. Installation, too, is easy. Both can be a floating floor where the pieces click together, mat, and hover over a clean, dry and level subfloor.
Waterproof flooring is a superior choice for the home or offices, restaurants where style and practicality are needed.
