How does waterproof flooring differ from water-resistant?

It is only natural when searching for waterproof floors to wonder if water-resistant flooring is just as good. The truth is, there are some differences between the two, and you will want to know what they are before you purchase.

Waterproof floors can do so much


When most homeowners think about waterproof flooring, they think about a basement, laundry room, or bathroom placement, and those are undoubtedly excellent options. However, you can install these materials anywhere throughout your home for the peace of mind you deserve.

You will find options like luxury vinyl plank and tile, porcelain, ceramic, and many other products that can keep you safe from water damage for years to come. Be sure to ask about the various levels of protection and lifespan, affecting how well they work for your specific needs.

Depending on the waterproof flooring options you choose, installation times can vary. For instance, luxury vinyl flooring is a quick and easy installation, while porcelain tile can take longer due to the vast precision necessary for the task.

Also, when you speak to your flooring professional, be sure to ask about the type of protection these floors provide. With some options, such as laminate, you will need a vapor or moisture barrier to protect against any possible subfloor situations.
