Fully Waterproof Flooring

To avoid water accumulation beneath the Floors, fully waterproof flooring requires glue-down installation. Only Glue Down Flooring is capable of completely waterproofing the surface and sides. With a Top Layer Sealer, these floors are suitable for use in bathrooms and other areas that are frequently exposed to water and moisture.

Surface Waterproof Flooring

Surface Waterproof Floors prevent water and moisture from penetrating into the subfloor from the surface. These Floating Floors are excellent for most rooms, including kitchens. These floors are not suitable for bathrooms.

Water-Resistent

Our Water-Resistant Flooring offers superior resistance to mild and moderate water infiltration through the flooring surface. Surface waterproofing of these floors is doable, but further top layer sealing using materials accessible on our website is required.

Waterproof Flooring for Bathrooms and Indoor Wet-rooms

Waterproof luxury vinyl plank flooring or tiles, which have been available for decades, have long been considered the best option for bathrooms and wet rooms. It has become increasingly popular in recent years to use cork glue down flooring for these types of applications because it provides additional warmth and comfort on your feet in addition to its waterproofing properties. After getting out of the bath or shower or before getting ready in the morning, you will no longer experience ice-cold sensations on your feet.

Surface Waterproof Flooring

It is not always necessary to search for the floor that will provide the best answer to the question, “Which flooring material is the most waterproof?”. Fully waterproofed flooring is not required in the majority of applications, including kitchens, laundry rooms, and gyms. A great alternative that is also simple to install is Surface Waterproof Flooring. If you have a small water spill in the kitchen, a wine glass that has been spilled, or a pet that has had an accident, surface waterproof flooring will protect you from water getting into and through the floor from the top. If you are looking for a floor for one of these applications, these cork floors and cork-based floors are the best options for you to consider. Bathrooms and other high-moisture areas are not recommended for use with these products. The use of completely waterproof floors is recommended for these applications because they prevent water from penetrating between the top floor and the sub-floor from the sides as well.

Water-resistant Flooring

Cork flooring, in general, has excellent moisture and water resistance, which is why it is used in a variety of applications, such as wine bottle corks. Cork Flooring creates a warm and inviting environment. Generally speaking, our Forna Natural Cork is at the very least Water-Resistant, which means that even a small amount of moisture on the surface can be quickly and easily removed without any difficulty. If you require more than Water Resistance, we recommend that you apply a Water-based Top Layer Polyurethane which will seal the edges of each plank. With a Top Layer Polyurethane Surface Waterproofing will be reached which is sufficient for the majority of applications such as kitchens, mudrooms, and laundry rooms. Our recommendation is to avoid installing these floors in bathrooms or other rooms that are subjected to a lot of moisture, even when using Top Layer Polyurethane.
