Is it Waterproof or Water Resistant?
You’ll often hear these terms, making it critical to understand how waterproof differs from water-resistant flooring.
- Water-resistant flooring is designed to accommodate minor splashes, followed by swift clean-ups. Spills left unattended will create issues over time, though it’s important to note that water-resistant flooring tends to be less expensive.
- Waterproof flooring can manage major spills and accidents: certain varieties are even floodproof. Liquids are trapped on the surface and aren’t absorbed into the floor. While pricier, these flooring options tend to outlast their moisture-resistant counterparts for obvious reasons.
Waterproof Vinyl Flooring
Although all vinyl flooring is considered water resistant, not all are fully waterproof. We carry all the top vinyl flooring brands, including Invincible H20 and COREtec Plus.
Waterproof vinyl plank and vinyl tile are made in two distinct forms: WPC (wood-plastic composite) and rigid core flooring.
- WPC flooring features a strong waterproof core. This core provides exceptional dimensional stability to the planks and tiles, so they won’t expand or contract when exposed to moisture. The core also prevents moisture from penetrating into the planks and tiles and reaching the subfloor.
- Rigid core flooring is not as popular as WPC flooring, but it’s considerably more durable. Whereas WPC flooring has a layered construction, rigid core planks and tiles are more uniform. These planks are extremely strong and dense, so they can withstand moisture and other external factors.
Waterproof Tile Flooring
Tile is one of the most time-tested waterproof flooring options.
Ceramic, porcelain, and stone tile can all handle moisture, so they’re typically top choices for kitchens and bathrooms.
While all tiles can be considered waterproof, some are rated better for extreme moisture. For instance, porcelain tiles tend to handle water better than ceramic, but be sure to work with our tile experts to learn more.
We carry the industry’s best tile brands, including:
Yes, you read that correctly! Although most carpet isn’t compatible with moisture, there are some notable exceptions to the rule.
Waterproof carpets, including those made by Tigressa H2O, are considered waterproof because of their strong thermoplastic backing. This backing stops moisture from soaking into the carpet, so most spills can be cleaned from the surface without many long-term consequences. Its durable carpet fibers resist stains.
