Waterproof vinyl flooring satisfies so many needs that after careful consideration, many homeowners determine that installing it throughout their homes is prudent. Good looks top the list of luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile attributes. With a great selection of high-quality products, the RCI Flooring showroom in Palm Harbor, FL, is the place to go for all your waterproof flooring needs.

Durable core

Waterproof luxury vinyl brands usually feature a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. The former is made with wood fibers, while limestone is the main component in the latter. Standard vinyl flooring is flexible, but waterproof vinyl flooring, also known as 'rigid core' flooring, is sturdy like the wood and tile materials it mimics. 

Tough surface

Rigid core flooring features a long-lasting surface or wear layer, like the core layer. In addition, the transparent wear layer is thick on these superior brands, so the wood or tile image layer under it is well-protected from stains and scratches. As a result, a like-new look can be maintained over the years with routine sweeping to remove dirt and occasional mopping to remove grime. 

Interlocking design

Many vinyl planks and tiles are designed to be clicked and locked together so installers can construct waterproof floors that float above the subfloor. Therefore, these floors can be laid over most surfaces, including concrete slabs and existing hard surface floor coverings. Glue-down brands are also available, as well as semi-permanent loose-lay brands that butt together.
