Luxury vinyl is inherently water-resistant, but if spills are left to sit on the surface, they can eventually soak through. Waterproof luxury vinyl uses a watertight seal and seamless installation to keep moisture out. It also has a layered construction that resists bending and deforming when exposed to humidity and water. Additionally, the layers include a waterproof core that prevents moisture from escaping to the subfloor and causing permanent damage.
The main benefit of waterproof luxury vinyl is that it offers 100% protection from moisture. This makes it a great option for high-moisture rooms like the bathroom, kitchen, and entryway, especially if you want to see the gorgeous look of hardwood floors in these areas. Real hardwood is generally not advisable for installation in a high-moisture place because it can warp, gap, and crack. Likewise, natural tile and stone is waterproof, but has an involved installation process and can chip if you accidentally drop anything hard on it. Luxury vinyl is also more affordable than natural floors, but just as stylish and beautiful.
