Please stop by our showroom in Woodinville, Washington, or schedule an appointment for a visit from our mobile showroom so you can shop at home.
Waterproof laminate flooring
Wood-based laminate is a multi-layer synthetic flooring that mimics hardwood, stone, and ceramic. Some laminate planks and tiles are waterproof for the amount of time specified by the manufacturer. Generally, laminate that is labeled ‘waterproof’ repels water for about one day. The flooring may become damaged if the water is not wiped or mopped up in this timeframe.
Waterproof vinyl flooring
Unlike waterproof laminate flooring, vinyl repels water for long periods. Standard sheet vinyl is cut to size for each project. With no or few seams, the water stays on the surface rather than seeping to the subfloor. Luxury vinyl planks and tiles, which imitate hardwood, stone, and ceramic, withstand moisture and abrasion because of their multiple layers.
Like waterproof vinyl flooring, ceramic and porcelain tile can remain wet for long periods without sustaining damage. Clay-based ceramic is waterproof when it is glazed, while porcelain, a type of ceramic, is inherently waterproof. While ceramic is durable, porcelain is a superior material that comes in more colors and designs, including those that mimic other materials
