Choosing a top waterproof flooring material

Waterproof wood look and stone look flooring is a 'step-up' from standard human-made flooring. Luxury vinyl is tops in the waterproof flooring category. This tough and durable child- and pet-friendly material withstands heavy foot traffic, and it's very resistant to scratches and stains. Family-owned Quality Carpets Inc. offers waterproof flooring in Glassboro, New Jersey, including luxury vinyl planks and tiles. Our shop from home service provides a handy and convenient way to begin your waterproof flooring upgrade.

Core layer

Luxury vinyl is composed of four layers. The core layer makes up the bulk of the flooring. A plank or tile with a wood-plastic composite, or WPC, or a stone plastic composite, or SPC, the core is waterproof. The former is made with wood byproducts, while the latter includes limestone. A foaming agent is added to a WPC core, making it softer underfoot than an SPC core. But the denser SPC core is better at tolerating extreme temperatures.

Wear layer

The core layer is protected by the backing layer, while the wear layer protects the wood or stone image layer. This transparent surface layer determines the durability of a plank or tile since the floor must be replaced when the high-tech image is worn. Therefore, a product that features a thick wear layer is best. Flooring with a 20-mil wear layer can be installed anywhere in the home, including the areas that receive heavy foot traffic.

Embossed in Register

Texture can be added to vinyl plank flooring. Usually, it is added with no correlation to the wood image. But top-of-the-line luxury vinyl planks use Embossed in Register, or EIR, to align the texture with the wood grain perfectly. This means that planks look and feel like hardwood flooring. In addition to a more natural, authentic look, the planks provide increased traction and slip resistance.
