Waterproof flooring eliminates subfloor concerns. But, as many know, water damage travels quickly from the sub to the surface floor–the one we see and touch. 

That affects both aesthetics and performance. Please continue reading to learn more.

First, understand the difference between waterproof and water-resistant

Waterproof means impervious. An impenetrable product is made of waterproof materials, so the capabilities are inherent. There's no coating or any other "special feature."

Water-resistant floors will repel liquid for a short time. Unless wiped immediately, however, it breaks through to the core, soaks, and stains.

No water absorption

Also referred to as waterproof vinyl flooring, these floors are thick, durable, and constructed with the WPC or SPC core. Wood plastic composite and stone plastic composite cores keep spills and leaks on the surface.

It can't leak under the planks or squares; the liquid can't drip into the subfloor, so there's no rotting or collapsing.

Waterproof vinyl flooring won’t soak, stain, or ripple, no matter how much water or long it's been there. 

You can travel for weeks or months with the peace of mind of knowing you won't come home to a significant leak.
