Is vinyl flooring waterproof?

You’ll have plenty of options when you choose tile for your flooring. Ceramic and porcelain are the most popular, offering plenty of variances just between the two of them. Porcelain brings you a very natural appearance with a clear glaze and through-body color that helps hide cracks and chips, while ceramic is brightly colored and gives you plenty of options for décor-matching. Both materials can be cut into a variety of shapes and sizes for inclusion into even the most personalized and unique floor coverings.

Luxury vinyl features a layered construction, consisting of the following layers:

  • Backing layer –This creates stability, noise reduction, and a terrific foundation for your vinyl flooring.
  • Core layer –This layer is responsible for creating waterproof protection that gives you the peace of mind you deserve.
  • Design layer –Thanks to a 3D, high-resolution laser printing process, the design layer gives your floors the all-natural wood and stone look, complete with grain patterns and textures that make it look just like the real thing.
  • Wear layer –This layer is responsible for protecting you against many forms of daily wear, such as scratches, scuffs, and stains, for keeping your floors looking like new for years.
