Waterproof Flooring


A Beautiful, Durable and Economical Flooring Choice

By Shannon Salisbury, Director of Marketing, Flooring Depot

The newest innovation of engineered flooring products, waterproof flooring is beautiful, durable flooring offering designs that faithfully replicate the high-end look of hardwood, ceramic tile, stone and concrete with the exceptional performance, comfort and affordability of luxury vinyl. These floors have the same multi-ply layer construction, but feature a waterproof core that can survive splashes and spills without swelling or warping.
Waterproof solid core planks are thick like solid wood boards, but also 100% waterproof—a feature that places them in a league of their own! It’s the look and feel of hardwood with waterproof performance. The advantageous backing on solid core floors also muffles sounds, making them quieter than other hard surface floors.

Waterproof solid core floors can be installed directly over most existing floors, including ceramic tile, vinyl, hardwood and laminate floors, and feature easy-install locking systems or flexible glue-down installation options. In addition, their rigid, dense construction conceals the bumps and hollows of an imperfect subfloor. The solid core planks can also be installed with attached underlayment to create a floating floor system.

So, what are the best rooms for waterproof flooring? Waterproof vinyl plank and tile flooring has the eye-catching style to be featured in your best rooms, but is designed to go anywhere—from kitchens and bathrooms to basements and mud rooms.
