We carry a variety of resilient flooring at Hopkins Carpet One Floor & Home, so you have multiple options to choose from. The most common types of resilient flooring sheet vinyl, WPC, and rigid core products. Continue reading below to learn about each different type.
What is Sheet Vinyl Flooring?
Innovative designs have made it possible to get affordable vinyl sheet flooring that lasts for years. It’s even stylish enough you'll be thrilled to keep it that long! To help you begin your search for the best vinyl sheet flooring, let's review some basics. Vinyl sheet is often used as an alternative to natural stone, ceramic tile or even hardwood, especially in rooms like kitchens, laundry rooms and bathrooms that are more susceptible to moisture. The layered construction provides stability, cushioning and a protective finish for durability.
Wood Plastic Composite Flooring
WPC, or wood plastic composite flooring, is a 100% waterproof flooring option. They come in both tile and plank options, so you can get the natural look of stone and hardwood, but with added durability. The core is where it gets its waterproof features. The core is made from materials that do not absorb water. That means your floors will no expand, contract, or warp when exposed to changes in temperature, humidity, or weather.
Rigid Core Resilient Flooring
Rigid core is just another term for a solid piece of luxury vinyl. Luxury vinyl normally comes in flexible planks and tiles, but there are rigid options that more directly mimic the look and feel of hardwood or stone flooring. Just like other resilient options, rigid core will not warp or be affected by changes in humidity and you can even install it over most subfloors and sometimes existing floors depending how flat the surface is.
