If you’re looking for the highest level of moisture protection with gorgeous, grainy, true-to-life wood looks, consider waterproof vinyl flooring. This flooring is a more advanced version of luxury vinyl and engineered to be thicker and more durable. It’s also available with advanced technology cores that won’t peel or ripple ever.
WPC / SPC cores
These are the cores. With WPC, wood plastic composite, and SPC, stone plastic composite, you can spill on it, or it can be submerged, such as when there’s an appliance flood. It doesn’t matter how long it’s exposed to water or how much; it just won’t peel or ripple. WPC and SPC have the same moisture protection level, but the difference is in the feeling underfoot. WPC is warmer and more resilient, and SPC has the firm, rigid feel of a hard surface.
An abundance of style
When you are shopping for waterproof flooring in San Jose, CA, you’ll be amazed at the realistic designs; while it’s mainly associated with wood looks, you can also get stone and tile look-alikes. Images are taken with digital photography and show knots, grains, swirls, and veining variations. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured appearances such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.
The material can be cut into long planks to mimic hardwood boards, which you’d want for an even more authentic hardwood look. It is also available to cut into squares to mimic stone or tile, available in marble, terrazzo, granite, or colorful patterns and pops of color. Some even use grout with these, now considered an important design tool.
