SPC flooring, also known as stone plastic composite vinyl floor, is an upgraded version of engineered vinyl flooring. It’s the toughest type of luxury vinyl available.
The core of SPC flooring is a combination of limestone powder, polyvinyl chloride, and stabilizers that makes it extremely resilient. This gives SPC flooring the ability to resist expansion and contraction - which can cause shifting or buckling in traditional wood flooring.
Aside from durability, SPC flooring also offers a realistic appearance. It's made to mimic natural materials and comes with a variety of colors and textures.
Despite its durable nature, it can be easily damaged or worn out if not properly maintained. Therefore, it is important to choose high-quality SPC flooring.
It is more resistant to scratches and stains than other vinyl options, and it's easy to maintain with the occasional vacuuming and damp mopping. It's a great option for busy homes with pets and children who need to be comfortable underfoot.
Another benefit is that SPC is phthalate-free. It's also a good choice for those who want to make a green upgrade to their home.
It’s also a good choice for basements and secondary vacation or rental homes. It is a very affordable option, can be installed quickly and has minimal maintenance required. It’s also waterproof, which is especially useful for bathrooms and kitchens where it may be exposed to moisture.
