The beauty of real hardwood, in a completely waterproof package? Yes!
Waterproof hardwood flooring will stand up to everyday traffic. The new waterproof hardwood floors will be moisture resistant and won’t swell if they get wet. Water will not enter waterproof hardwood flooring and cause it to swell, or discolor over time, as solid wood floors may.
Because of its unique construction, engineered hardwood flooring is stronger and more durable than solid wood. It is more resistant to pets and children in an active home. Today’s active families want to find flooring that is durable and waterproof while providing the look of hardwood. Waterproof hardwood flooring works well, in high-traffic areas and any room of your home, especially in the kitchen and family room or even your bath.
Waterproof hardwood flooring is real, so if you’ve been wanting that authentic hardwood floor in your bathroom to compliment the rest of the floors in your home, now manufacturers of hardwood flooring have applied waterproof coatings to otherwise normal hardwood. It’s the same process that creates other types of waterproof floors. True waterproof hardwood floors are made with engineered hardwood. Engineered hardwood floors are in many ways superior to solid wood, and always superior in humid climates. Most retailers in Florida do not even sell solid hardwood floors; it’s just not a good fit in humid regions of the country, often buckling and swelling with humidity.
