Wood-look tile: The beauty of wood, the functionality of tile
Thanks to modern technology, such as Inkjet, you can get intricate patterns with raised grains and bold colors, including high variation. Planks are available in many widths and lengths.
SPC and WPC: technologically advanced cores
Stone plastic composite (SPC) and wood-plastic composite (WPC) are two cores used in waterproof vinyl flooring that will never peel or ripple, no matter how much water there is or for how long. Waterproof vinyl is a newer, more advanced, and amped-up version of luxury vinyl. These floors have an uncomplicated floating floor installation with a clicking mechanism.
Waterproof laminate: eliminating concerns about absorbing and staining
Laminate is well-known for its raised grain wood look, another hot trend. Now, a unique non-wood construction makes installing this anywhere in the house, including wet locations like the kitchen and bath--once avoided due to wood and water issues. It is spill-proof, eliminating concerns about soaking and staining.
With images inspired by nature, this material provides true-to-life photos of wood, stone, and tile cut into planks to mimic hardwood (luxury vinyl plank, LVP) or groutable squares (luxury vinyl tile, LVT) to echo stone and tile. The high-end style is combined with affordability, 100% waterproof capabilities, durability, low maintenance, and easy installation.
SPC rigid core
Also referred to as Stone Core LVP, this is an engineered version of the luxury vinyl plank with a firm, more durable, and rigid feeling like an authentic hardwood surface.
