Be proactive with waterproof flooring

 
Waterproof flooring comes in handy and limits damage and cleanup when there is an open window during a storm, a malfunctioning appliance, or a burst pipe. Spills or messes from snow-covered boots or muddy paws are never a problem. Several waterproof materials are available, and you can find a large selection of each of them at family-owned Hunts Flooring in Greenfield, Wisconsin. We have been bringing top-quality flooring and flooring services to the area for over 40 years.
 

Vinyl

 
For parents and pet owners, waterproof vinyl flooring, which imitates hardwood, stone, and ceramic flooring, is always a good choice for your home. Standard sheet vinyl and luxury vinyl planks and tiles can tolerate water for an extended period without becoming damaged. Depending on room size, one to three sheets are installed by attaching them to the subfloor with glue. Most luxury vinyl flooring clicks together for floating floor installation. Glue-down brands are a popular alternative. Loose lay planks and tiles butt together for easy installation and removal.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Laminate

 
Like luxury vinyl, laminate flooring is a multi-layer product that mimics flooring made of natural materials. Laminate planks and tiles have a fiberboard core, so the floor is always warm underfoot. Standard and waterproof brands are available. Waterproof laminate flooring repels water for a limited amount of time. Typically, this period is about one day. Before purchasing a laminate brand labeled 'waterproof,' it is best to read the manufacturer's specifications, where this information is noted.
 

Tile

 
Ceramic and porcelain tile is made of clay and hardened in a high-temperature kiln. Porcelain is inherently waterproof, but ceramic is only waterproof when it is glazed. While ceramic is durable, attractive, and quite serviceable, porcelain is the superior product. This fact is reflected in its cost. Ceramic is composed of coarse clay. Porcelain, on the other hand, is made of kaolin clay. Thus, the material is denser and harder than ceramic. Porcelain tile designs are more colorful and diverse than ceramic tile designs. Wood-look and stone look brands are popular.
