Up until recently, the only waterproof flooring choices were tile and
luxury vinyl. While both are lovely flooring materials, there are now two more
to consider: waterproof vinyl flooring
and waterproof laminate flooring. Everyone needs a waterproof floor no matter
where they live because we all have those moments when the dishwasher floods or
we spill liquids.
When something is waterproof, it is utterly
impervious to liquid, and it's made from entirely waterproof materials. Engineered vinyl is an example, and it's
impenetrable from bottom to top, meaning that it can either be submerged or
spilled on. Water-resistant means there is always a possibility that liquid can
absorb, soak, stain and ripple.
