Why you should consider waterproof flooring

When most people hear the term “waterproof flooring”, they are immediately put off. Many homeowners only consider that type a flooring a necessity for those who live in flood-prone regions. However, there are far more benefits to choosing this floor covering for even the most average home, no matter where it’s located. Once you find out about them, you may wonder why it’s taken you so long to come around.

Waterproof flooring works for everyone

Waterproof flooring is no longer an option that only certain people can make use of. In fact, there are so many styles and design choices in this material alone, it’s likely you’ll find not only a product that meets all your needs, but that matches your existing décor as well.

Many kinds of material now carry the title of “waterproof”, with luxury vinyl and laminate being the most popular. With these two floor coverings, you get a floor that is not only impervious to water, but that has the look and feel of real wood as well.

Some dealers might try to convince you that water resistance is just as good as waterproof. However, when it comes right down to it, it’s really not the same thing. The major difference between these two types of flooring is the fact that one is resistant to water, meaning it can withstand the liquid up to a certain point, while the other blocks water completely, and with no time limitations. In other words, your house could flood, leaving water standing in your house for days, and there will still be no damage to your floor coverings.

With this kind of resume, who wouldn’t want this flooring in their own home? Well, you also have the added bonus of a quick and easy install, with some brands featuring a click and lock system that creates a floating floor. Not only is it a quick install, it’s an easy one too.
