Questions concerning waterproof flooring

As you begin to look into waterproof flooring, a term you’re sure to hear is WPC, which stands for wood plastic composite. If you have questions concerning that phrase, you’re in good company.

In fact, here are some of the most frequently asked questions on the topic:
  • What is WPC, exactly? This is a composite material that doesn’t actually contain any wood at all. It can sometimes be referred to as waterproof vinyl, or enhanced vinyl plank, and is a composite material. It is stable, rigid and waterproof.
  • Is WPC better than laminate? Laminate, unless it is also waterproof, cannot be used in areas where water, moisture and humidity are a factor, but WPC can. In that case, WPC would be more appropriate than laminate would, and it will perform better as well.
  • What about this material and subfloors? Other floor coverings, such as LVT (luxury vinyl tile), are often thinner and show uneven areas with ease. This floor covering, on the other hand, can often cover those uneven areas, making them appear perfectly even. This is due to the rigid core that exists inside WPC.
  • What does this material look like once it’s installed? In many cases, you will think you’re looking at laminate flooring. However laminate does have more edge detail in the bevel, and can often feature deeper embossing. However, these floors are beautiful in their own rite.

These are just a few of the many questions we’ve answered on this topic. Stop by if you have further questions.
