Is Laminate Flooring Water Resistant?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: August, 2021 - Modified: September, 2021

Laminate flooring, made of layers of different materials with a photographic surface, is not generally known for its water resistance. The materials used in the different layers really determine its resistance to water. While many laminates feature a wood or composite material at their core that do not resist water well, there are plenty of laminate flooring tiles and plank made of materials that will withstand water. These are generally referred to as SPC, LVP or LVT products. Most of them offer a waterproof vinyl laminate surface.

There are so many attractive, high performing water resistant laminate flooring products available from Greatmats - all of which are easy to install, clean, and maintain.
