So, what are some factors that would lead to your needing waterproof flooring in your home? We have found that if you have pets, children, appliances, water pipes, or a ceiling, you definitely need waterproof flooring. What we mean by that is that anything can go wrong at any given time. Water pipes burst, appliances malfunction, and ceilings can be torn apart by storm damage. In each of these cases, the ensuing water damage can lead to a total replacement of your flooring in that room, and likely the ones surrounding it.
The best possible scenario is that you’re ready for those situations, even if they don’t happen. This is a perfect case of, “better safe than sorry:” Especially if you’ve just installed new flooring. While the waterproof flooring itself may cost a bit more on the front end, it’s still going to cost less than replacing an entire room of flooring should something happen with regards to water damage.
Since you’re not choosing one particular product, you’ll be free to choose from a variety of beautiful materials. Waterproof flooring can be found in luxury vinyl, tile, and some varieties of stone, and is anything but drab.
