Waterproof flooring spans several different material lines, including tile, luxury vinyl, and some varieties of natural stone. With options this diverse, you’re sure to find something that covers your every need. Durability is a standard across all of them, so you won’t have to worry about stains, scratches, scuffs, fading, or other signs of daily wear. Instead, your floors will look new longer, even extending the overall lifespan of your flooring.
The lifespan of waterproof flooring depends on the material you choose. Luxury vinyl offers an average of 25 years, while stone can easily give you 100 years with proper care and maintenance. Tile falls in between, averaging roughly 50 to 60 years. The money you’ll save in never having to shop for flooring again could be the determining factor for your own decision. Which one will be best for you?
Each material also carries its characteristics, but one thing remains constant. Waterproof flooring offers peace of mind that is simply priceless, everywhere it’s installed. In basements, bathrooms, and laundry rooms, it makes perfect sense. These rooms carry the probability that water damage could occur and are likely to do so at some point. However, in bedrooms and living rooms, it can protect against spills, accidents, and even actual flood conditions. We think that’s a benefit every homeowner deserves.
