Waterproof Laminate Floors Combine the Beauty of Wood with the Resilience of a Synthetic Material

Waterproof laminate flooring is the ultimate “have your cake and eat it too” option if you want the beauty of natural wood floors in a room that’s not ideal for the real thing. While there are countless good reasons to choose a real hardwood, one major factor prevents its use in certain parts of a home or business: real wood does not handle moisture well. One solution for getting the warm look of wood in rooms that encounter lots of wetness is to choose a waterproof laminate flooring product with Aqua Defense technology from Empire Today®.

What is Waterproof Laminate Flooring?

Simply put, waterproof laminate flooring is a material that can be exposed to liquids without getting stained or damaged. That means you can safely install it in a bathroom, mud room, and any other area of a home or business that tends to encounter lots of messes and moisture—you can even safely install waterproof laminate flooring in a basement. But thanks to the photorealistic wood image printed on each laminate plank, you’ll still get to enjoy the visual elegance of real wood floors.

Are Water-Resistant and Waterproof Laminate Floors the Same?

When shopping for laminate flooring, it’s important to understand the distinction between various descriptions you might encounter. A floor described as “water-resistant” is not the same as waterproof flooring and will, in fact, become damaged by prolonged exposure to water. To be sure you’re getting a 100% waterproof laminate flooring product, look for products from Empire® with the Aqua Defense designation. This identifies the flooring products that are fully waterproof. And thanks to its innovative construction, waterproof laminate flooring often includes other added benefits, like increased wear protection, materials that resist mold and mildew growth, and even protection against pet accidents.
