Waterproof Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Today’s luxury vinyl is nowhere near the vinyl associated with the 1950s. High-resolution photography and embossing techniques have transformed this type of flooring over the years so that it now looks unbelievably authentic and can mimic tile, stone, and hardwood. While the majority of luxury vinyl products are water-resistant, waterproof choices are now available and quickly becoming a hot item. Pioneer Carpet One Floor & Home is your local source for gorgeous flooring. We carry a large selection of luxury vinyl, including waterproof options.
A number of factors go into making luxury vinyl waterproof. To begin with, it’s made using a layered construction that’s exceptionally sturdy and resistant to warping when exposed to humidity, heat, and heavy foot traffic. It also has a core layer that not only adds cushioning and warmth, but is waterproof and prevents moisture from passing down and reaching the subfloor where it can cause serious damage. On the surface level, waterproof luxury vinyl has a watertight barrier and is generally installed without seals to keep leaks from occurring. This is opposed to water-resistant luxury vinyl, which will repel moisture and spills, but if puddles are left to sit long enough, the liquid can sink into the surface and lead to problems.
Waterproof floors are ideal for high-humidity and moisture-prone areas like the bathroom, kitchen, entryway, and laundry room. Waterproof luxury vinyl is simple to install, unlike hardwood and tile, and can essentially be put into any room with a dry, flat, and clean subfloor. Our experienced professionals can help you determine which rooms in your home are most suitable. Beyond its easy installation process, waterproof luxury vinyl is excellent because it gives you the option to have a gorgeous hardwood look anywhere in your home, including the kitchen and bathroom, where wood isn’t usually recommended.
