What Are the Best Waterproof Flooring Options?

Whether it is burst pipes, overflowing sinks, or tracked-in rain or snow, there are a lot of ways your floors can get wet. For some flooring materials, this can be a real widow maker, causing all sorts of damage like warping, separation, cupping, and more. For other flooring materials, getting wet is no problem at all. That's what we want to talk about today, waterproof flooring.

If you would like the peace of mind that comes from knowing your floors will be safe from all of the aquatic dangers it could face on any given day, you're probably wondering which flooring materials are most resistant or immune to water. Well, Massud & Son Floor covering has you covered with this guide to the two best waterproof flooring options out there. Here's what you need to know:


Tile is one of the oldest, most reliable waterproof flooring materials out there. It's easy to maintain, can be easily repaired on a per-tile basis, and offers nearly unlimited variety when it comes to design options.

Tile is a traditional choice for rooms like the bathroom and kitchen, where water damage is a very real concern.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring

It wasn't too long ago that luxury vinyl flooring, or LVT, was considered to be something of a consolation prize for people who wanted the look of more expensive flooring materials, but couldn't afford them. Over the last decade or so, huge leaps in materials and imaging technologies have catapulted LVT into a resurgence of popularity. These advances have improved this material's durability and have been a game-changer for their ability to mimic pricier materials.

Nowadays, LVT is able to recreate the look of those pricier materials so well, that even a trained eye has difficulty telling them apart. If you are looking for beautiful, durable waterproof flooring that won't break the bank, this LVT should definitely be on your short list.
