What Is WPC?

WPC flooring Van Nuys, CA

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. Let’s take a closer look at some of the advantages of WPC:

Water Resistance

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.

Almost all WPC floors feature the “click” installation method. Learn more.
