Unlike water-resistant flooring that you must wipe immediately, luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is impenetrable to liquid. It's also affordable, stylish, durable, and low maintenance with a simple installation.
When something is waterproof, it's made of entirely waterproof materials; in this case, it is vinyl.
No special coatings are necessary. It can be spilled on or submerged.
Because of this capability, vinyl plank or tile is a popular flooring, especially for those with large families and pets.
It also has a wear layer, a strong, clear melamine coating, that protects the floor. It guards against scratches, scuffs, and dents and keeps spills from absorbing.
Waterproof flooring: LVF, amped-up
This is engineered luxury vinyl flooring. It's thicker, more durable, and constructed with the WPC or SPC (wood/stone plastic composite) cores.
These cores won't peel or ripple ever. Like luxury vinyl, waterproof flooring offers the same gorgeous wood, stone, and tile looks with textures, depth, and dimension. It is also cut into planks or square, tile-sized pieces.
WPC and SPC offer the same level of moisture protection. The only difference lies in the feeling underfoot, whether resilient or solid and firm.
Rigid core plank
This waterproof vinyl is sometimes referred to as WPC or SPC flooring. This is a luxury vinyl plank with an SPC core.
It's budget-friendly and about as close as you can get to the feeling and look of hardwood. By the way, you can also do this with LVT flooring.
