Waterproof Laminate Flooring—The Fastest Growing Trend on the Market!
LAMINATE ISN’T THE SAME AS WATERPROOF LAMINATE FLOORING, AND IT’S IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THE DIFFERENCE.
Laminate flooring is a popular choice for homeowners who desire a traditional hardwood look but require ease of installation. Laminate, as a man-made surface, can replicate many different natural surfaces, including wood grain and even marble. Those who want waterproof laminate flooring in their bathrooms or basement should first understand how laminate is comprised.
While moisture-resistant properties are included in traditional laminate flooring, damp areas such as bathrooms are constantly exposed to moisture. Over time, it’s possible for excessive moisture to warp wood-based laminate flooring.
Thankfully, there is another option. Waterproof laminate flooring exists as a separate entity to traditional wood-based laminate. Design associates at Floor Coverings International know the difference and are excited to show shoppers all possible laminate flooring options available, wood-based and waterproof.
True waterproof laminate flooring is actually comprised entirely of plastic. Introduced in the 1990’s, it was once considered laughable as a plausible flooring option. Currently, it’s the fastest-growing type of flooring due to affordability, durability, stain-resistance, and ease of installation.
