Waterproof Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Waterproof luxury vinyl takes the vinyl flooring category to the next level by providing homeowners and businesses with 100% waterproof protection in a stylish package. Modern vinyl is now a high-end item that beautifully mimics real hardwood, tile, and stone. While most luxury vinyl is water-resistant, waterproof luxury vinyl is one of the latest developments in this type of flooring. At O’Briens Carpet One Floor & Home, we carry the best waterproof luxury vinyl flooring on the market. Our experienced experts can guide you through the unique features of this innovative type of flooring.
Several unique features make luxury vinyl waterproof. First, it has a watertight seal that prevents moisture from getting past the surface of the floor. It’s also created in a layered construction that’s exceptionally durable and doesn’t bend, warp, or gap when exposed to humidity and spills. The layers include a waterproof core that helps trap any moisture that collects underneath the floor and prevents it from moving to the subfloor and causing permanent damage. It’s important to understand that waterproof luxury vinyl is different from the majority of LV, which is water-resistant. While water-resistant LV can handle an occasional spill here or there, puddles that are left to sit on the floor long enough can eventually sink into the surface of the vinyl.
Part of luxury vinyl’s appeal is that it looks just like real hardwood, tile, and stone, but doesn’t require the same involved installation and maintenance requirements. It’s easy to install and can be put in as a floating floor or glued-down. It comes in both waterproof luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank formats. It also never needs to be refinished, sanded, polished, or grouted — although you can grout luxury vinyl tile for added realism. Waterproof luxury vinyl is perfect for high-moisture areas and rooms where puddles collect, like the bathroom, entryway, kitchen, laundry room, and basement. Its luxury appearance also makes it ideal for essentially any room, including living rooms, bedrooms, home offices, and commercial settings.
