Luxury vinyl flooring: The best waterproof flooring for your home

Between tropical storms and a generally swampy climate, Florida homes have a real problem when it comes to finding floors that can hold up to the humidity. Wood flooring, carpet, and a number of other flooring materials all suffer serious damage from exposure to moisture, whether in the form of standing water, or humid air.

Luckily, there is a way to avoid the headaches and cost of moisture damaged floors: Get floors that aren't damaged by moisture! That's where luxury vinyl flooring comes in! Here's everything you need to know about how to get the great-looking floors you want, without all the concerns about water damage!

The look of wood without the risk

Wood flooring is more popular than ever if current trends have anything to say about it. That's all well and good if you live in Arizona, or some other dry place, but here in Florida, wood isn't always the best way to go. Wood floors can warp buckle, crack, and separate with prolonged exposure to humidity or moisture.

Luckily, luxury vinyl flooring can give you the look of wood without any of those concerns, and modern advances in imaging and printing technology have made it so that even an expert eye, would have a hard time telling it apart from real wood once it is installed.

Waterproof flooring that is durable

There are other waterproof flooring options out there, but none quite so durable as luxury vinyl. Luxury vinyl flooring is engineered from the word "go" to be long-lasting, resistant to impact, and almost impervious to the wear and tear of heavy foot traffic.

The secret is in the durable wear layers that are applied to the top-facing part of the flooring that sloughs off erosion from gritty dirt and foot traffic as easily as it beads up water.
