Waterproof luxury vinyl is 'liquid spill-proof'

If you're looking for a practical and cost-effective flooring that is appropriate for every room in the house, vinyl might be your best option. This floor covering is easy to keep clean, and it resists stains, scratches, water, and daily wear and tears. While standard vinyl may be adequate for your needs, it's wise to upgrade to luxury vinyl. Johnson’s Carpet & Tiling INC is a luxury vinyl retailer in Napoleon, Ohio. Our knowledgeable design consultants can answer all of your questions about vinyl and guide you through the decision-making process. We have a large selection of luxury vinyl and other types of popular flooring like laminate, hardwood, and carpet.

Water-resistant flooring

Luxury vinyl is thicker than standard vinyl, which means that it is more comfortable to stand on. It also means that it's able to support the deep embossing involved with 3D printing technology. With this high tech printing, luxury vinyl planks and tile can more realistically mimic the look of wood, stone, and ceramic than standard sheet vinyl. Luxury vinyl usually has four layers: base, core, design, and wear. You can judge the flooring's durability by examining the wear layer. While a 12 mil wear layer is serviceable, a 20 milwear layer is essential in an active home that includes children and pets. The best brands have a protective coating on top of the wear layer. Look for terms like 'titanium top coating.' Luxury vinyl is most often installed as a floor that is connected to float over the subfloor.

Waterproof flooring

Liquid spills aren’t a problem for water-resistant luxury vinyl. There is no damage to the floor when spills are cleaned up immediately. But some luxury vinyl is more than water-resistant, it is waterproof. Any luxury vinyl flooring that has a wood plastic composite core or a stone plastic composite core can tolerate standing water. Even if left in water for a long period, it won't swell, warp, or buckle. High-quality brands include Armstrong Pryzm, Mohawk SolidTech, Karndean Korlok, Mannington Adura, and Shaw Floorte. Some waterproof brands are backed by a lifetime warranty while others have 30-year or 15-year warranties. Top of the line products boasts waterproof construction as well as highly durable wear layers.
