Waterproof Flooring Features

Consider the following when comparing one product to another:

Perforated Surface
Most waterproof outdoor floor mats and outdoor foam tiles will feature perforation, which will allow excess water to go through. Standing waters will not gather on the upper section. This is an important safety item that reduces the chance of falls.

Additionally, the material stays drier, so start using it again sooner after it rains.
The rate at which the drainage will occur will depend on the design of the perforations. For the best drainage, look for multiple, larger perforations if the area is prone to heavy rainfall or if it is close to a pool where there will likely be a lot of splashing.

Raised Plastic Base
Most feature a floating base design. This means that it is suspended above subfloors using tiny pegs. Air can freely circulate around the base, which speeds drying and helps prevent mold and mildew growth. It can be paired with both perforated and nonperforated designs.

Non-perforated units reduce the amount of circulation, so they're not a smart choice for locations that will see heavy moisture, such as those that will be placed near a pool or in a locker room. When combined with perforated surfaces, it maximizes air circulation for quicker drying—even in places where there is a lot of moisture.

This design means never worrying about pulling them up if leaks do occur. They are also excellent for spas, bathrooms, and other spots where no one wants to see mold growth.

Foam That Resists Dampness
If you're going to use foam, make sure it's made of durable, closed-cell EVA rather than open-cell EVA, which doesn't keep moisture out. Closed cell, meanwhile, is resistant to dampness or spills.

Revulcanized or Vulcanized Rubber
If shopping for waterproof rubber flooring, pay attention to the differences.
Standard or devulcanized rubber is not a strong or dense type of rubber. When tires are recycled, they're initially devulcanized, which makes them absorbent to fluids, creating an unhealthy situation.

On the other hand, vulcanized rubber is converted into a more durable, stronger product. Revulcanization is the same process, but it's used to treat previously devulcanized materials, such as the aforementioned recycled tires.

In short, vulcanized or revulcanized rubber is protected from absorbing moisture.

Tips for Choosing Waterproof Flooring for Bathrooms

The following questions will help in choosing the right option for a project:
  1. Will it be used indoors or outdoors?
  2. How much direct sunlight will it receive?
  3. Will it need to withstand drastic temperature changes?
  4. Who will be using the surfaces, and is there a falling risk?
  5. Is fatigue relief vital in places where people stand continuously, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms?
  6. Is resistance to items like oil or grease important?
  7. How much traffic will it see?
  8. How easily can a repair or replacement be performed?
  9. Will this be a DIY project?
  10. What type of subflooring is present?
  11. Is there a particular color scheme already in place?

We've outlined some considerations for different usage plans below.

Waterproof Basement Flooring

Everyone wants their flooring to look great, but don’t trade off looks for a leak or a flood that will destroy the flooring or create mildew.

That's why floating waterproof flooring for basements is a popular choice. Raised bases allow water and air to circulate beneath, promoting quick drying and removing odors. Waterproof foam floor tiles, waterproof carpet tiles, and waterproof floor mats for homes are all available in floating forms.

Key features in waterproof foam mat products for basements include:
  1. Airflow underneath prevents odor formation
  2. Removable, so it can be pulled up and reinstalled if needed
  3. Comfortable designs that increase the livability
  4. Attractive finishes that suit the decor scheme
  5. Low maintenance and are easy to clean

Outdoor Waterproof Flooring

This can be used for a variety of purposes, including covering a deck or patio or converting a rooftop into a gathering space. It must be resistant to the elements, including temperature fluctuations and UV light.
Features of quality outdoor flooring include:
  1. Comfortable
  2. Traction for maximized safety
  3. Drains liquid away
  4. Materials that can survive harsh temperatures
  5. Durability that can withstand high amounts of traffic
  6. Versatile installation capabilities, including over rooftops, dirt, and grass

Flooring for Pools and Saunas

If you're working around a sauna, it must meet some demands. Many feature ASTM fall height ratings. This means that it is a forgiving surface that helps to absorb shock. In the case of a fall, it can help minimize injury, which is a major benefit in areas where falls and slips are common.

For pools, seek out:
  1. Fall rating
  2. Comfort underfoot
  3. Perforations to maximize drainage of large amounts of rainwater
  4. Raised options to keep people’s feet away from standing water
  5. UV protection to keep it looking great for years
  6. Surfaces designed to maximize traction

Simple Installations Process

Most of ours are modular, which is incredibly easy to install, saving the expense of a professional installation.

They connect via a variety of systems, including a puzzle-style interlock and a hook-and-loop system. The exact installation method will depend on the product in use and the location. In certain cases, an adhesive may be needed for long-term installations.

FAQ Waterproof Flooring Q&A

What is the Best Waterproof Flooring?

Select among vinyl, PVC, laminate, and rubber models. Consider the use case planned for the location and match it to the desired type of material.

What is the Top Waterproof Vinyl Plank Flooring?

This style is outstanding in areas where liquids may spill, as liquids just pool on the surface until it's time to wipe them up. Some of the luxury vinyl plank products will resemble solid hardwood in the wear layer, which is ideal for a variety of situations where real wood-look flooring is typically in use. Our Max Tile is extremely popular, delivering excellent quality and style. Another option is a stone-look tile or a tile in a solid color.

Are Vinyl Floors 100% Waterproof?

Yes, which gives them a huge advantage when used in locations that are often damp, like waterproof floor mats for dogs. This also ensures spills from the kids, a leaking washing machine, or something in between will not cause damage.

Are PVC Floors Waterproof?

Yes, the majority of models are. If using PVC in waterproof mats, manufacturers will create a lightweight material that also has the protection against spilled liquids that customers are seeking.
