For active families, waterproof flooring is a safe bet, but when you think of waterproof flooring, you may remember the ugly vinyl flooring of yesteryear. No worries. New technologies have given birth to new, beautiful options in waterproof flooring that can give you the exact look and feel that you desire.
Home Areas That Need Waterproof Flooring
High-traffic and high-moisture areas such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, and basements call for waterproof flooring. And when you have little ones toddling on two feet or furry friends on four feet, spills and wear and tear are destined to happen. These areas require durability, resilience, and easy clean-up. That’s where waterproof flooring can come to the rescue.
Flooring Options for Active Living
In areas of the home that are damp or have water, wood flooring and carpet simply aren’t practical. Hardwood can buckle and become water damaged, and carpet can stain and become moldy if the water isn’t thoroughly removed from it. There are three great alternatives to hardwood and carpet that you can have installed in areas that require waterproof flooring. They are vinyl, tiles, and a newer variety of laminate flooring that is waterproof.
Vinyl is a very popular choice for high-moisture areas because it is affordable and durable. Today’s vinyl flooring is worlds away from the old vinyl. New technologies have enabled vinyl to mimic the look of tile, wood, and stone. You’ll be surprised how good vinyl looks. Vinyl flooring comes in sheets, tiles, and planks. Our flooring specialists can help you find the one that’s right for your waterproof flooring projects. Contact us to set up a free in-home consultation.
Tile floors are beautiful, durable and waterproof. It is usually used in smaller rooms simply because it can get pricey to layout a large room in tile. Tile also tends to be cool underfoot, unless you add heat beneath the floor. There are tile floors now that look like wood, so you can get a hardwood look that is waterproof. Tiles are also easy to clean and maintain, which is a great perk for high traffic areas. Contact us to have tile samples brought right to your home.
Waterproof laminate differs from traditional laminate in the core. Rather than fiberboard, which reacts poorly to moisture, waterproof laminate planks are made using moisture tolerant composites or plastics and due to this innovation, can be used in high moisture areas such as bathrooms, basements or kitchens. We have beautiful waterproof laminate flooring from top manufacturers, and we can bring samples right to your door. Contact us for an in-home consultation.
