Frequently asked questions about waterproof flooring

Flooring | The Floor Store

Waterproof floors are an evolution in luxury vinyl flooring. With durability that exceeds other engineered products, these floors have the same multi-ply layer construction but feature a waterproof core that can survive splashes and spills without swelling or warping. In an advantage over laminate floors, the backing on solid core floors also muffles sounds, making them quieter than other hard surface floors.

Yes. Waterproof solid core floors can be installed directly over most existing floors, including ceramic tile, vinyl, hardwood and laminate floors. Their rigid, dense construction won’t telegraph the bumps and hollows of an imperfect subfloor. Install solid cord planks with attached underlayment as a floating floor system.

Waterproof flooring has the eye-catching style to be featured in your best rooms, but is designed to go anywhere, from kitchens and bathrooms to basements and mud rooms. Trend-setting looks in wood, stone, ceramic tile and stamped concrete present numerous options to match your tastes.

Waterproof floors resist the wear and tear of everyday life. Scratch and stain resistant, mold and mildew resistant – you’ll never have to worry about where to install these long-wearing, beautiful floors.
