Waterproof Flooring

Looking for a new floor that will hold up against water and heavy use? Waterproof flooring is a great option for kitchens, bathrooms, laundries and mud rooms in your home.

What is Waterproof Flooring?

Perhaps you’re concerned about the kids leaving taps in bathrooms, overflow from laundry sinks or your pets tracking in water from outside. Or maybe you just want some elegant flooring for your bathroom or kitchen instead of tile or polished cement. If so, waterproof flooring could be for you. Waterproof flooring is a great way to ensure that your floor is protected against spills and water leakage. Waterlogged floors can bend, crack, bubble, and and even grow mould. This will eventually deteriorate your floor, leaving you with potential safety hazards and the hassle of fixing your floor and even the foundation underneath it.

Waterproof flooring has an added barrier that prevents moisture from seeping through the cracks, making it perfect for bathrooms, kitchens, or mud rooms where wet gumboots and rain jackets are hung when entering the home. This barrier wicks away water instead of letting it soak in, like a regular floor might. While we still recommend that you clean up any water that makes it onto your floor, you can rest assured that your floor won’t be damaged.

Why Waterproof Flooring?

Waterproof flooring typically lasts longer than regular flooring, because it is less likely to age from moisture. Even if you aren’t worried about water damage in the bathroom, water can still seep through your floors, whether it be from a spill or simply the moisture from your shower. It is good practice to open the window and or turn on the fan when showering and bathing in the tub.

Lots of waterproof flooring also withholds other extreme conditions, like direct heat and extreme cold. When temperatures fluctuate, flooring expands and contracts. Using a flooring that can handle those extremes is a must, especially when living in hotter areas across Australia.

And if you have pets or kids, you can worry less about the mud and water that they might bring in, making it perfect for mud rooms or even hallways. This durable, waterproof flooring won’t let you down.
