What you need to know about waterproof luxury vinyl floors

Luxury vinyl floors

Q. Are luxury vinyl floors really waterproof?

A. Luxury vinyl floors are topically waterproof, meaning the product itself is waterproof. However, this does not mean that water cannot get under the vinyl via the perimeter of the room, or that water cannot be present under the vinyl (a slab with a high moisture content, a broken pipe in the subfloor, etc.). The product itself may be waterproof, but in the case of standing water or flooding, the luxury vinyl tile (LVT)/luxury vinyl plank (LVP) will not act as a waterproofing barrier for the subfloor and/or any surrounding structure.
