Waterproof wood look luxury vinyl tile flooring in New Franken

Are there waterproof wood look tiles?

While hardwood flooring is not appropriate for bathrooms and basements, homeowners can get a wood look in both of those areas by opting for tile flooring. Of course, wood look tile, whether laminate, vinyl, or ceramic, can be installed anywhere in the home. Bayland Flooring in New Franken, Wisconsin, carries a full line of each type of waterproof tile. We have brands provided by top companies like Mohawk, Mannington, and USFloors.

Luxury vinyl

Luxury vinyl tiles that have a stone plastic composite (SPC) or wood plastic composite (WPC) core are waterproof. Tiles will not warp or suffer any type of structural damage when exposed to water for a long amount of time. Also, the image layer is well protected by the wear layer. This wood-look waterproof flooring is ideal for frequent vacationers or those whose lifestyle doesn't permit quick water clean-up. Floors can be floating or glue down.


Porcelain, a type of ceramic, is the most durable type of tile on the market. The eco-friendly tiles are shaped from clay and then fired in a kiln at high temperatures. Porcelain is inherently waterproof. Like vinyl, porcelain can tolerate water for extended periods. Wood-look tile generally comes in a plank shape and size. Wood-look mosaics are an attractive alternative. Tiles are installed with an adhesive and joined together with grout.


Laminate tiles have a particle board wood base along with an image layer and a clear wear layer that protects the image. Only brands labeled ?waterproof? can be expected to repel water. Most brands require clean-up within a day of exposure to water. If the floor remains wet for a longer amount of time, damage may occur. Often, tiles use a click-lock system so the floor floats above the subfloor.
