Waterproof flooring! It is, without a doubt, the most requested feature when residents of Parkland, FL shop for new flooring. When talking about modern waterproof flooring, most people are talking about luxury vinyl plank flooring or modern, waterproof laminate floors. Every time you spill something on the floor, you might find yourself dreaming of laminate waterproof flooring. If you do a bit of research, you’ll find laminate waterproof flooring is alive and well in Parkland, FL. But what does that really mean?

Living with waterproof flooring in rooms where messes often occur sounds perfect. But is laminate waterproof flooring really a thing? Every homeowner knows that water can be one of the most damaging forces you’ll ever deal with. It’s an invasive problem that can start small and bring tremendous damage as it moves along its path. It can compromise roofing, siding, drywall, and flooring.

That makes waterproof laminate flooring sound perfect. But is it?
 

Waterproof Laminate or Water-Resistant Laminate Floors?

 
This is one of the most misunderstood marketing claims you’ll find on many waterproof flooring products. And different manufacturers use these terms interchangeably in some cases. They are not equal terms.

Water-resistant means the material can withstand or resist water for a period of time. Eventually, it will be damaged by standing liquid or water. For most Parkland, FL homeowners, this level of protection against liquids is adequate but for rooms exposed to water (bathrooms, mud rooms, laundry rooms and even kitchens), a waterproof laminate floor would be the better option.

Waterproof means impervious to water. It will stand up to water indefinitely, and remain in its original shape without damage.

This is where things start getting a little tricky. The laminate flooring itself may be waterproof, but what’s around it may not. If moisture seeps down into the subfloor, which is not waterproof, the damage could occur from the bottom up. With so many products claiming to be waterproof, you’ll be best served looking for products that also warranty your subfloor. That is a great way to determine what companies actually stand behind their waterproof flooring claims.

A point we can’t stress enough is that there is no such thing as a flood proof floor.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Waterproof Laminate Wood Floors

 
Nothing beats the look of hardwood. That’s why so many products mimic it, trying to look like the real thing.

When you want to move even closer to the look and feel of hardwood, waterproof laminate wood might be a perfect choice. Keep in mind that not every laminate is the same. Some may be waterproof while others are water-resistant. Be sure to do your research well to ensure you purchase what you truly desire or stop into our Coconut Creek showroom for an education on waterproof floors. Our Coconut Creek flooring store is located at 4450 N. State Road 7 in Coconut Creek, FL 33073.

Waterproof laminate woods do a very good job with everyday messes. While it will easily stand up to kitchen messes and a spilled glass of water, a flooding dishwasher may force laminate beyond repair, as it would other types of flooring. This is where it’s important to know your lifestyle, and understand the product most likely to give you the results you’re looking for. Quantum Floors carries waterproof laminate floors from a wide variety of manufacturers. Our flooring experts will spend as much time with you to make sure the waterproof laminate floors we recommend and install are the best flooring for your needs.

Our clients in Parkland, FL, our installers and our flooring specialists love Mohawk RevWood, Quick-Step and Pergo Elements waterproof laminate floors. Many of these laminate wood collections feature WetProtect, offer a warranty for pet accidents and are made in the USA. In fact, some of the collection have such great waterproof properties that you can clean them with a steam mop, a huge no-no on hardwood or vinyl floors.

WetProtect technology provides the right kind of waterproof warranty protection, features water-tight joints that prevent water from leaking through gaps to damage your subfloor, and a waterproof finish that traps moisture on the surface. WetProtect is full-coverage waterproof protection backed by a lifetime surface and subfloor waterproof warranty.
