Water-resistant or waterproof flooring? What to know


Water-resistant floors and waterproof flooring are not the same. They both work toward the same result, but not in the same way.

Understanding the difference between the two can help you choose the perfect material. And one will likely work better in your home than the other because of your lifestyle and needs.

What is water-resistant flooring?


Water-resistant materials help hold off the effects of spills, humidity, and dampness. But they can only do so for up to 72 hours, depending on your chosen brand.

Some floors offer top to bottom level protection, helping keep damage at bay. For example, waterproof laminate flooring is perfect in spaces with no subfloor dampness.

Waterproof flooring works in every room


When you choose waterproof flooring, you have complete protection from water damage. Even with pets and children in the home, you can have peace of mind that your floors will hold up under any situation.

Waterproof options give you excellent protection, even in laundry rooms and kitchens. And with professional installation, they could last more than 20 years.

Extended benefits you'll love as well


Besides offering protection against water damage, these floors offer much more. Waterproof vinyl flooring features impressive visuals that mimic natural wood, stone, and porcelain tile.

Each look provides extensive colors, textures, and formats that cater to your decor. In addition, specific trends enhance your home's looks and keep you current for years.
