Waterproof flooring is a wise investment
You won't be sorry if you invest in waterproof rather than standard floor coverings. The lifespan of your new floor might be longer, and you'll have peace of mind throughout that lifespan. With proper care, you can count on your floor to retain a 'like new' look. Waterproof flooring is composed of materials like ceramic, natural stone, luxury vinyl, and laminate. You can find a large selection of each type of flooring at Builders Wholesale Finishes. We have a showroom in Morrice, Michigan, and we offer a shop-at-home service, too.
Ceramic waterproof flooring
Porcelain, a type of ceramic, is naturally waterproof. Porcelain is made with fine kaolin clay, while ceramic is made with coarse clay. Porcelain tiles are hardened in the kiln at a higher temperature than ceramic tiles. Thus, porcelain tiles are denser and harder than ceramic tiles. Porcelain tiles are the most durable type of tile on the market. Wood-look porcelain tiles, which are often shaped like small planks, are trendy at this time.
Natural stone flooring
Natural stones like travertine, marble, and limestone are a high-end choice for a bathroom, kitchen, or mudroom. These quarried stones add an attractive and unique 'straight from nature' element to room decor. Weight is a factor to consider before placing stone in any home space. Like ceramic, most stones are porous. Thus, a stone floor is sealed during the installation process and then resealed regularly throughout its lifespan.
Waterproof vinyl flooring
Some waterproof vinyl flooring imitates ceramic and stone flooring and also offers a wood-look floor. Luxury vinyl planks mimic many wood species, while the most fashionable luxury vinyl tiles imitate wood and stone. The best luxury vinyl flooring does not peel, warp, or buckle even when exposed to standing water. This floor covering is designed for glue-down, loose lay, and floating floor installation.
