What is WPC?

WPC (Wood Plastic Composite) - is a 100% waterproof engineered luxury vinyl plank. Featuring an inter-locking system that can be installed over most existing sub floors. WPC flooring is extremely durable and known for its gorgeous realistic aesthetic. It most commonly comes as a long plank, in sizes similar to  7" x 48".

 

Price Range: 

Price Range is $1.89 to $3.89. Depending of thickness of wear layer. Your wear layer can range from 6 mil. to 20 mil. 

 

Why should you buy WPC?

This flooring is more stable to different climates. Its wear layer is stronger which is why it is a more resistant flooring when compared to laminate, vinyl plank, and hardwood. 

WPC will have that realistic wood-look and is durable against water and humidity, as well as reusable.

If it was to rain for 10 days straight and you had 2 ft of water inside of your home, you could disassemble the WPC, clean it, let it dry and reinstall the same planks. This flooring could last you a lifetime.
