    One of the questions our customers ask is whether waterproof floors are worth it. If you have ever had any type of small flood in your house that led to ruined floors, you already know the answer. Sure, waterproof flooring is more expensive when you buy it, but that is due to the benefits of having it installed. Plus, the additional expense is far less expensive than having to replace flooring if you get water on your floors.

    There are several benefits to waterproof flooring. Of course, they are waterproof. That makes them a great choice for wet rooms. Wet rooms are rooms where the floors are likely to get water on them. Basements, bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms are all wet rooms. However, depending on your home other rooms may be wet rooms as well. Do you have an outdoor pool? If so, then the path from the pool to the nearest restroom is going to collect water. Waterproof flooring is important for those areas, as well.

    Waterproof flooring is also a versatile option. You can get products that look like other flooring standards, such as natural wood and stones. Waterproof laminate is generally more expensive than other synthetic materials. However, in many instances, the waterproof options may be more affordable than the natural options. So, choosing them allows you to get a classic, upscale appearance without overspending.

    Even if you do spend more than you would on other synthetics, the long-term savings make it worth it. Because they are more durable than other synthetics, waterproof flooring is a good long-term choice. You can expect it to look great for decades, providing a warm, natural look.

    The newest waterproof option is waterproof laminate. They add durability of the traditional laminates as well as the waterproof properties of vinyl planks.

Will definitely use again!amy G.amy G. ★★★★★ Always a pleasure dealing with Shane, has the product at a great place installed when you need it.Dustin H.Dustin H. ★★★★★ After checking out other places for flooring, I contacted Smart Carpet through Costco. The process was quick, salesperson showed up for appointment on time, took measurements, discussed options and showed me samples to choose from. (There was no charge for that service) At that time, Steve W gave me an exact price on the job. I didn't need to await a call back. Not only was I happy with the price, but, being an Executive Card Costco Member, I received an extra perk! Install was a short time later, completed in one day with polite and helpful workers who cleaned up to perfection. My floor looks spectacular and my friends and neighbors are envious, lol. If you are considering sprucing up your home with new flooring, call Smart Carpet and request Steve W to get the ball rolling!Janice P.Janice P. ★★★★★ The customer service and quality of work was absolutely spot on.
