What Is WPC Flooring?

WPC flooring has quickly become one of the most highly sought-after flooring options for both residential and commercial settings. What exactly is WPC? WPC stands for wood plastic composite, but nowadays most WPC floors are made exclusively from synthetic (plastic) materials. It is a luxury vinyl flooring option. Let’s take a closer look at some of the advantages of WPC:

Benefits of WPC Flooring

The biggest advantage of WPC flooring is its water resistance. Unlike hardwood and laminate, WPC floors are totally waterproof, so they can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas with moisture. Moisture will never reach past the surface, so any spills can simply be wiped.

Furthermore, most WPC floors feature strong waterproof cores that prevent the planks from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture.

WPC floors are extremely resilient, so, compared to hardwood and laminate, they are rather comfortable underfoot. Plus, this resilience means that WPC flooring can withstand heavy foot traffic and other potential impacts. For the most part, the planks will never need to be replaced, even after years of use.

Another great advantage of WPC flooring is the fact that it can be installed over most subfloors. In fact, WPC flooring, after installation, will hide any subfloor irregularities and imperfections. With other vinyl flooring options, including sheet vinyl, any subfloor irregularities will show.

Rigid Core Flooring

If you are looking for a floor that is realistic as possible that also provides protection from dents, water, stains, and scratches then consider rigid core luxury vinyl. These floors feature maximum durability and design making them the toughest and most beautiful luxury vinyl floors. WPC is on trend with the latest styles in hardwood and tile. These hybrid floors bring you the best of both such as being 100% waterproof, scratch and stain resistant, comfortable and quiet, and beautiful enough to install all throughout your home. WPC is a rigid core option, but not all rigid core is WPC.
