It’s a relative newcomer to the market and there’s a lot of confusion, but this is what you, the consumer, need to know: Waterproof Flooring WPC
is the superman of luxury vinyl tile (LVT) or luxury vinyl plank (LVP).
It is thicker and denser, and that makes it sturdier, so it’s a separate product from LVT and LVP. To simplify it, all waterproof WPC is luxury vinyl flooring, but it’s not the other way around.
Luxury vinyl flooring has always been popular, but we can say this is the upper crust version of the product.This product has an advanced construction with a core of wood pulp and plastic composites add a thickness (more so than traditional vinyl), giving it even more strength and stability.Jaime's Designs & Floors has been in business for 36 years. An award-winning company, we have a full inventory of products and services. Our showroom is located in Fresno, and we service the surrounding areas including Clovis, Banger, Madera, and Fowler CA.
This waterproof flooring is comprised of four main layers. At the top is a clear wear layer that protects the floor and keeps it scratch-and-dent resistant and waterproof. Directly under that is the image layer which, thanks to high definition photography, is sharp; it is impossible to “walk-off”, because of that protective layer on top. Next is the core, made of wood pulp and plastic composites (WPC). Then there’s an underlayment (construction depends upon the manufacturer), which makes it a little more flexible easier to stand on for long periods.
