Wait a minute, did the title mention ‘waterproof laminate flooring’? Well, there is no such thing as waterproof laminate flooring, as no laminate flooring is 100% waterproof. However, good quality laminate flooring does have a high level of water resistance, which makes it highly suitable for kitchens and many commercial areas.
The introduction of click resilient flooring in the early 2010s was first depicted as a strong substitute for traditional laminate flooring due to its waterproof nature. However, as flooring technology advances, home owners now have a better and wider range of click resilient flooring available in various patterns, sizes and designs. During that time, as there was not a particular category name for click resilient flooring, it was called ‘waterproof laminate flooring’ by local designers and contractors.
In a short span of time, manufacturers began to mass produce various specifications of click resilient flooring products. Because of that, the quality among laminate flooring products varies, sometimes to a very large extent. Various flooring distributors also started to offer their version of click resilient flooring under various trademarked names such as ‘high end’, ‘luxurious’ and so on, thereby staging a branding war between click resilient flooring distributors.
As the mass production of click resilient flooring products continues, the quality of the products become even wider. To ensure quality among the click resilient flooring products, a few manufacturers managed to increase their eco quality standards by implementing responsible flooring manufacturing processes. In other words, consumers are able to differentiate between a conventional click resilient flooring product and an eco resilient flooring product.
One way is to look for credible green certifications such as The Singapore Green Label and Floorscore that certify the flooring’s eco quality as well as optimal indoor air quality standards.
As flooring technology advances, the ‘waterproof’ laminate flooring has evolved into a higher quality waterproof resilient flooring with better Eco qualities. Start sourcing for your best waterproof laminate flooring today, get in touch with our flooring team HERE.
