Luxury Vinyl Planks - What does "Waterproof" mean?

6 years ago

Hi Everyone!

I've posted in the Building a Home Forum many times but I feel like this question is much more specific. We're thinking about getting Luxury Vinyl Plank for our basement. Now, we live in an area that has a high water table and it is not uncommon to have flooding in the basement sometimes. I originally figured we would get tile, but then I came across LVP with their waterproof claims.

So I was wondering - just how waterproof is this product? If there is a basement flood with standing water for a day or two will this flooring survive? Or does waterproof means if something spills on it, it's fine? I can't seem to find this info online.

Thank you!
