WPC vinyl flooring is best known for being 100% waterproof. It is luxury vinyl flooring amped up a notch with a special waterproof core that makes it perfect for any room in the house.
WPC stands for wood-plastic composite, which makes up the waterproof core. The WPC core is enhanced with a foaming agent, making it slightly softer and more comfortable in addition to being completely waterproof.
This flooring is hugely popular amongst homeowners looking for the look of traditional hardwood without the maintenance. It is also one of the most popular flooring options for commercial spaces and businesses. It’s beautiful and low maintenance. Plus, it’s easy to install, making it a dream come true for DIYers.
What is the structure of the WPC Flooring?
WPC waterproof flooring is typically composed of four layers, but that can vary between manufacturers. In general, here’s what you can expect to find:
Wear layer: This layer protects your floor’s surface from the wear and tear of everyday life. The thicker the wear layer, the better that protection!
Printed vinyl layer: This layer features the gorgeous photo imagery of wood or stone that makes vinyl so popular as an alternative to natural materials.
WPC core: This is where the magic happens. WPC flooring contains a solid, waterproof WPC core. No matter how much water it encounters, it won’t swell, stain, or warp.
Backing layer: This is the bottom layer of your plank. It provides a sturdy base, and sometimes comes with an attached underlayment for added convenience.
Pros of WPC Vinyl Flooring
Completely waterproof: From both the top and bottom, WPC vinyl is designed to withstand moisture and prevent water damage to your floor.
Comfort: It’s true, you could just get a wood or stone look tile or SPC plank and it would also be waterproof. But those options are hard. Standing on a hard floor all day isn’t great for your joints or feet. WPC is more resilient and much more comfortable.
Style: Vinyl is at the top of every trend right now. Luxury vinyl can come in those highly sought-after wood-look and stone-look styles that people can’t stop talking about.
DIY installation: If you like doing things on your own, you will love how easy it is to install WPC flooring. Many come with interlocking tongue-and-groove systems that can float over your existing floor.
Low-maintenance: With the occasional sweep and mop, you can easily keep your floor looking good as new.
