Is waterproof flooring durable?

Yes, and to let you know how much, we're going to put it into perspective for you. Waterproof flooring (sometimes called waterproof vinyl) is luxury vinyl, engineered to be even thicker, more durable, and offer the highest level of moisture protection. Since luxury vinyl (LVF) is five times thicker than the original product, you can only imagine how durable this is.

WPC and SPC cores

Wood-plastic-composite and stone plastic composite are two technological cores that won't peel or ripple no matter how much water there is or for how long. SPC cores, which once were used primarily in commercial installations, have a firm, rigid feeling underfoot, like a hard surface; as designs increased, so did the use of SPC in homes. Wood-plastic composite cores have a warmer, more relaxed feeling underfoot, like that of resilient vinyl.

Like LVF, images of wood, stone, and tile are taken with high-definition photography and have micro beveling and embossing to add depth, dimension, and textures. It can also be cut into planks or tile-sized squares and only needs regular sweeping and periodic mopping to keep it in shape. Installation can be easy, especially when it is a floating floor.

Other waterproof floors include:

The waterproof flooring options have expanded! Tile is a time-honored building material that has been used for centuries. Luxury vinyl, made of entirely waterproof materials, can be spilled on or submerged with no damage.

New to the market is waterproof laminate. Unlike original laminate, this features a non-wood construction that makes it spillproof, eliminating concerns about soaking and staining. However, since the original laminate is still very much sought after, be sure to specify which version you want.
