Luxury vinyl flooring in Phenix City, AL from FloorWorks

Is luxury vinyl flooring waterproof?


Luxury vinyl flooring can be installed on top of any subfloor in any room from the basement to the attic. The best brands are designed to repel water and resist stains and scratches, and a pet-friendly warranty backs many brands.

In addition, you can find the plank or tile design that enhances your decorating style at FloorWorks in Phenix City, AL.

Four layers

Luxury vinyl flooring comprises four layers, and while every layer has an important function, it's the core layer that makes up the bulk of the flooring.

Any luxury vinyl plank or luxury vinyl tile (LVT flooring) with a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core is waterproof. Moisture does not change the size of either floor covering or cause it to warp or buckle.

WPC and SPC cores


A WPC core is made with wood flour, and an SPC core is made with limestone. WPC flooring, which includes a foaming agent that makes planks and tiles softer and more comfortable underfoot, is installed in homes.

In contrast, almost indestructible SPC flooring is used for commercial applications. Both types of low-maintenance flooring are easy to clean.

Textured styles

Wood-look vinyl plank flooring and stone-look luxury vinyl are trendy, and if you choose a textured style, your new floor will closely resemble the natural material. There are two types of textured planks, and both are created with embossing techniques.

Standard texturing is applied randomly, while Embossed in Register texturing is precisely aligned with the wood grain pattern depicted on the plank.
