How SPC Stacks up

Flooring solutions such as Laminate, Vinyl, and WPC  have been around for ages. They haven’t changed much since their creation and for good reason. They are stirdy, can for the most part stand up to wear and tear and, most importantly can withstand water damage to an extent. Yet, along with all the great things that these solutions offer they still have some key flaws. They are not water PROOF, they are water RESISTANT. Essentially meaning that they don’t stand the test of time.

Thanks to modern technology and innovations in the process of flooring procurement and  creation, a new breed of flooring solution known as SPC has hit the market. SPC has quickly gained popularity in the flooring industry because of its reputation for durability and for truly being 100% waterproof.

How SPC Ranks against WPC:

On average SPC Costs less than WPC

SPC is Denser than WPC, it has no give when stepped on where as WPC  is more resilient.

SPC has more Uses than WPC. WPC is used for basements, kitches, bathrooms and other areas of homes.  SPC is used in all WPC spacess Plus commercial places.

SPC is 10 times more impact resistant than WPC and 20 times more impact resistant than laminate.

You may be thinking, “What are they talking about WPC is 100% waterproof.” Although WPC is much more water resistant  than laminate, it still isnt 100% waterproof because of its wood composition. The wood within each plank still stands a chance of soaking moisture and thus, creating water damage. This is not the case for SPC. SPC is made solely out of Plastic and Stone, neither of which have properties that maintain or soak moisture. Making it truly 100% waterproof.
