SPC & WPC flooring facts you should be aware of

When you choose luxury vinyl flooring for your home, chances are one of the benefits you’re looking for is waterproof protection. This is a great product line to find that in, along with many other benefits as well. It's the core components in this flooring line that make it possible for complete waterproof protection, and we'd like to tell you a little more about them.

Luxury vinyl flooring specifics

Two of the most popular core materials for complete waterproof protection are wood plastic composite (WPC) and stone plastic composite (SPC). They are both excellent options for your needs, but they do differ a bit. Here are some facts about each that might be important as you choose the best fit for your home.

SPC flooring

Pros and cons of SPC include:
  • The stone plastic composite core creates a thick, rigid construction for a sturdier look and feel.
  • It’s affordable, durable, and effortless to clean.
  • The subfloor must be completely level, but repairs can be made to ensure this is possible.
  • There are no repair options, and they are hard to remove once in place, but the durability they offer often makes up for this in a long life span.

Pros and cons of WPC include:
  • Wood-plastic composite is just as waterproof, yet more pliable and forgiving than SPC.
  • It’s an excellent choice for both indoor and outdoor applications.
  • There is often a noise or “click” when walking on these floors, which can be alleviated by adding a soft underlayment.
  • The digital repeating pattern can look synthetic, but this can be broken up with area rugs or runners to divert the visuals.
