Waterproof flooring is the best low maintenance option for families who have children and pets in their home.

We work with you and to answer any questions you may have and to find the product that works best for you and your family. Waterproof flooring was made with active households in mind, and can withstand everyday uses and challenges.
Waterproof flooring cuts back on how much time you spend doing your weekly cleaning routine, and you also no longer have to worry about accidentally missing a spill or mess. Waterproof flooring creates a watertight seal between your floors and subfloors, so accidental messes will not cause long-term damage. Waterproof flooring is also a hypoallergenic option because it does not absorb moisture, there is nowhere for bacteria to thrive and grow.
Luxury vinyl flooring offers up a world of waterproof options, and it can be a confusing process indeed to navigate your options. WPC and SPC vinyl planks are very similar in appearance, but there are some important distinctions beneath the surface! As a general rule, WPC flooring is much thicker than standard SPC and is much softer to walk on due to a cushioned core. SPC vinyl flooring, which tends to be the more affordable option, is harder due to its limestone construction. An added underlay is often desired to give your SPC a softer touch.
Below are a few different waterproof flooring options to consider for your home.
Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring comes in both water resistant
and completely waterproof options. Waterproof luxury
vinyl flooring features a surface that stops moisture
from penetrating through your floor, and a core that
allows water to sit on the surface and be wiped up instead
of seeping through to your subfloor.
Porcelain tiles that absorb less than 0.5% moisture
are considered waterproof. Tile can be installed in
places around your home that see a lot of moisture
such as laundry rooms, basements, and even outside
as a patio. Shower tile is the ultimate in waterproof tile,
and allows you to turn your bathroom into your own
