Originally designed for use in outdoor applications, wood-plastic composite has recently become an increasingly popular choice for indoor flooring, thanks in large part to a spike in the demand for waterproof flooring and advances in wood-plastic composite flooring production, that have increased its aesthetic appeal sufficiently to be considered for indoor usage.
Wood-plastic composite is produced by mixing wood flour or ground wood fiber with intensely heated thermo-plastics, to create a flooring material that is both waterproof and extremely durable. Strong, UV resistant, and very long-lasting, wood-plastic composite flooring is an excellent choice for homeowners who are looking to have the extremely waterproof and highly durable qualities of an outdoor flooring solution for their interior flooring.
If you want a tough, fade resistant, and completely waterproof floor covering for your home, wood-plastic composite is an option you should seriously consider.
Originally introduced in the 1930's as a flooring solution specifically intended for areas of high humidity, or areas at risk of experiencing standing water, luxury vinyl has come a long way since its debut. Luxury vinyl, though an effective waterproof flooring option, was often maligned in its earlier years, because it lacked the aesthetic beauty of other floor covering options. However, luxury vinyl has come a long way from those early days.
Over the years, advances in digital printing and imaging have breathed new life into luxury vinyl's desirability. These days, producers of luxury vinyl are able to mimic the look of other natural floor coverings such as stone, wood, and ceramic tile so well, that even a trained eye can be easily fooled. In addition to being waterproof, homeowners are particularly fond of the ease with which luxury vinyl can be installed as a DIY project. The durability, ability to mimic more expensive flooring options at a fraction of their price, and the money saved through self-installation, make luxury vinyl a serious heavy-hitter in the waterproof flooring world.
