Luxury vinyl has quickly become one of the most highly sought-after flooring options in residential and commercial settings. Why? Let’s take a closer look at its advantages.
One of the major allures of luxury vinyl flooring is its appearance. Luxury vinyl is specially-made to look exactly like real wood and stone, and for the most part, these looks are truly authentic. In addition, most luxury vinyl floors even have textured surfaces that feel like wood and stone!
Is Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
Most luxury vinyl floors feature some level of resistance to moisture, but there are vinyl floors that are completely waterproof as well. Waterproof luxury vinyl features a waterproof core that does not soak up water, but rather allows it to evaporate or sit at the surface of the floor to be wiped up. This core also stops moisture from ever reaching the subfloor, where is can promote the growth of mold and mildew.
Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring options include WPC and rigid core flooring. Rigid core flooring, which is a relatively new type of luxury vinyl flooring, is super-durable, and it is considered totally waterproof because of its thick and uniform construction.

Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Durable?

Luxury vinyl will resist almost all scratches, scuffs, and stains, so it will never need to be finished and sealed. Plus, most luxury vinyl floors are waterproof, and they also are built to handle heavy foot traffic.
