Mannington AduraAs if luxury vinyl tile wasn’t hot enough these last couple of years, vinyl has made another debut over the last year with the newest trend: Waterproof Vinyl, (WPC Vinyl). This next revolution in vinyl flooring is a patented hybrid of wood and plastic called Wood Plastic Core (WPC). It’s particularly appealing for its waterproof properties, dimensional stability, rigidity, and great style. Read on to learn more about why WPC Vinyl is a trend on the move....and of course, we carry it at Barry Carpet.

Interior designers are in love with LVT 2.0 - Waterproof Vinyl. WPC Vinyl comes in stunning stone and wood visual designs in tile or plank construction. Carried now by many leading industry brands, WPC Vinyl offers wonderful warranties for both residential and commercial spaces.

As a product, WPC Vinyl is more affordable than hardwood with significantly easier installation and maintenance. WPC Vinyl will never need to be sanded down or resurfaced and, of course, it is immune to spills and water-related accidents. Its waterproof capabilities make WPC Vinyl suitable for environments such as bathrooms and basements, and because it's stylish and realistic look, it can be used throughout the home.

WPC Vinyl has the unique ability to hide subfloor imperfections like cracks and divots in concrete or wooden subfloors - something that traditional LVT cannot hide. The vinyl wear layer of WPC provides comfort and also absorbs the impact of sound to make it a quiet floor.

We carry a wide selection of WPC Vinyl at Barry Carpet. A few brands worth mentioning include: US Floors - COREtec Plus, Shaw Floors - Floorté, Mannington - Adura, Provenza - Maxcore, and many more...
