Does water-resistant mean the same as waterproof?
No. Water-resistant may seem almost waterproof, but there is still a chance that water can trickle through, resulting in stains on flooring, as well as peeling and rippling. Waterproof flooring is entirely impervious to water and is typically made of completely watertight materials, such as vinyl. As a result, it repels moisture from both the top and bottom, meaning it can be spilled on or submerged. If you are looking for waterproof floors in Houston, be sure to come into Carpet Giant.
Why do I need waterproof floors?
Waterproof floors will change your life and eliminate any concerns about leaks or spills. It doesn’t matter where you live; we all have those "oops" moments, like a spilled gallon of milk, a dropped glass of wine, or a leaky dishwasher. These floors, also sometimes called SPC or WPC floors, will never be damaged, no matter how much liquid there is or for how long.
What do SPC and WPC mean?
Stone plastic composite (SPC) and wood-plastic composite (WPC) are two technologically advanced cores that offer the highest protection level. We know someone who was away from home for several months, only to come home to an appliance flood. He just cleaned up the water, and the floors were fine.
Is it stylish?
Yes, this is engineered luxury vinyl (LVF). A premium (but affordable!) product, these floors have images inspired by nature. Photographs of wood, tile, and stone are taken with 3D photography, available in an extensive color palette and a wide assortment of patterns, so they are clear and amazingly realistic. Micro beveling and deep embossing add depth, dimension, and textured features, such as wire-brushed, hand scrape, weathered or distressed. The flooring can be cut into long planks to mimic hardwood or square, groutable pieces to echo stone and tile, and, like all LVF, these floors are low maintenance and easy to install.
