The truth is laminate flooring is not waterproof in the sense that it is entirely impervious to water. Certain products provide more water resistance than others, however, and we’re going to talk a bit more about the reasons for this.
Waterproof: laminate or luxury vinyl?
The water resistance you get from laminate flooring is from top to bottom and not from bottom to top. What this means in a practical sense is that you have more time to clean up spills and splashes, but if you have subfloor moisture issues, you will need a sound moisture barrier to protect against mold, mildew, and water damage.
For an excellent waterproof floor covering, you might want to take a look at luxury vinyl planks or tiles, which offer a superbimperviousness to water with core materials such as wood-plastic composite, stone plastic composite, and 100% vinyl. These options mean that you can have the genuine peace of mind that comes from knowing you won’t have to worry about water damage at all.
While luxury vinyl offers both plank and tile options, they both also provide wood and stone appearances, with many diverse color options and textures between the two. You're sure to find the flooring that meets your décor needs as well as protecting against water damage, so be sure to stop by to check out your options.
