WPC flooring

Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is the best type of vinyl flooring offered by manufacturers. It is highly resistant to stains and scratches. What?s more, it is waterproof while standard vinyl is only water-resistant. A WPC luxury vinyl plank, which mimics wood species like oak, hickory, and maple, has a rigid wood and plastic core that:

?assures floors won?t be warped by moisture and temperature fluctuations.
?hides imperfections in the subfloor.
?gives the plank stability.

Usually, a WPC luxury vinyl plank has four layers. The bottom, or backing, layer adds extra sound insulation and cushioning. The WPC layer is on top of the backing layer. It is the thickest of all the layers. Then comes the design layer and the wear layer, which resists damage to the floor.

Reasons to choose vinyl

Luxury vinyl planks have a lifetime of up to 25 years while thinner vinyl materials last 5 to 10 years. Vinyl floors are more than durable and tolerant of water. Vinyl flooring:

?absorbs shocks so it won?t crack or chip when a hard object is dropped on it.
?is resistant to scratches, scuffs, and other surface damage.
?sometimes can be installed over existing flooring.
?comes in a variety of textures like hand-scraped.
?can be paired with radiant heating systems.
?absorbs pressure so it is soft underfoot.
?offers endless design options.
?stays at room temperature.
?absorbs noise.
