The layers of waterproof flooring are what hold the secret to their abilities. The backing is made of cork or foam, so there’s no need for a different type of underlayment. Cork is also naturally resistant to mildew and mold, so there’s no worry whatsoever.
The next layer, or the core structure, is the waterproof layer. It is constructed of high- density material and will neither expand nor contract. Above this is the luxury vinyl layer that easily resists light abuse, making WPC durable and resilient.
Finally, you have the top layer, which is a wear layer. It helps to prevent against untimely wear, has an excellent ability to resist staining, and is very easy to clean.
Just as with other luxury vinyl, waterproof flooring is available in designs that look just like stone and wood. Of course, other flooring options give you this look as well, but at a price. Tile, for example, is very dense and hard. For this reason, it’s not good to stand on for long periods. That’s no problem with WPC waterproof flooring.
