Waterproof Flooring in Deerfield Beach, FL
The Advantages of Waterproof Flooring
Waterproof vinyl flooring is a relatively modern addition to the flooring world and has fast become one of the most popular choices for new homes and renovations. It’s designed to realistically mimic the look and feel of a variety of natural hardwoods, stone and tile materials. For this reason, it can be found in virtually any color or texture you can imagine.
Waterproof vinyl flooring is a highly versatile material suited for installation in almost any room. Part of that versatility is the ease with which vinyl can be installed. Floating click and lock installations are common.
An overflowing dishwasher, your pet’s spilled water bowl, wet footprints tracked across your bathroom floor, even boot-sized puddles in your mudroom after a rainstorm are no problem with waterproof flooring. With 100% waterproof flooring from COREtec and Mohawk, you never have to stress that these messy moments will ruin your beautiful vinyl flooring.
What are the Layers That Waterproof Flooring is Made of?
Most waterproof vinyl flooring products consist of four main layers of polyvinyl chloride resins (PVC). This PVC is melted down and combined with other elements for added durability & moisture resistance.
Once melted down, layers of the PVC are pressed together into planks or tiles which include the following layers:
- A backing layer with waterproof capabilities. This prevents mold or mildew that would otherwise result from the floor soaking up moisture.
- An inner vinyl core layer that lends strength, durability & flexibility.
- A realistic photographic image layer depicting the desired wood look or tile look.
- A surface wear layer on top that provides transparent protection for the image below.
