The FAQs about waterproof flooring

Why is waterproof vinyl flooring so highly recommended?

You’ll hear about 100% vinyl, wood plastic composite (WPC), and stone plastic composite (SPC) core, and we can fill you in on all the details about each one. But these floors are also popular because they are just as gorgeous as they are protective, offering an excellent lifespan.

Is waterproof laminate flooring waterproof?
Waterproof laminate is indeed waterproof, but in a different way than you might think. While some materials protect the top and the bottom equally, laminate protects primarily from the top down.
