What is waterproof composite flooring? 

Waterproof composite flooring also goes by the name waterproof laminate or waterproof core or WPC for short. In essence it is a breakthrough in flooring technology that is 100% waterproof. This flooring is installed as planks with a special interlocking technology that doesn't let water seep beneath your floor. Adding to its practicality, waterproof flooring typically comes with a commercial-grade top coat that resists scratches, stains and normal wear and tear. It's one of the most durable floors available today.

What does waterproof composite flooring look like? 

It looks like just about any type of flooring you want. The top layer of the flooring planks are designed to mimic ceramic, wood and stone in a wide variety of shades and colors. Using high definition printing, these floor planks have a look that's highly authentic. It's a great way to get a high-end look without the high maintenance.

Where can I install waterproof composite flooring? 

Anywhere! Over uneven subfloors... on top of existing vinyl or tile... in the basement, bathroom, kitchen, entryway... you can use waterproof composite flooring anywhere in your home. It's installation requirements are very forgiving. Most manufacturers have designed WPC flooring with a floating installation system with a rigid core and acoustic cork underlayment. It installs quickly and since it is waterproof you can install it in areas where water damage might be a concern.

Resilient waterproof flooring can handle it all.
