Just kidding. Well, probably not. Chances are if you’ve made it this far and you’re still interested in what SPC flooring has to offer, it’s probably a great fit for you.
SPC flooring started out primarily as a commercial flooring option. However, US Floors says they expect to see it become a residential staple. We spoke to Bryan Schwieger of US Floors who said,
“Although SPC is best suited for commercial applications because of its overall durability and high-traffic design, this category has really expanded its visual offerings, and because the cost to produce is less than others, we expect the sales to continue to grow on the residential side in the future.”
Almost anyone can benefit from rigid core’s waterproof features and durability. Here are a few types of people we highly recommend it to.
- Business owners: Like I’ve mentioned, rigid core luxury vinyl flooring is designed with business owners and commercial spaces in mind. It is the most durable waterproof vinyl flooring option on the market. And, its sharp looks keep your business looking modern and stylish.
- Pet owners: We know pets can completely wreck a floor between accidents, nails and running, but rigid core is built to handle it. It’s also less slippery on those little puppy paws than laminate options.
- Homeowners with imperfect subfloors: One of the biggest selling points for SPC rigid core flooring is that you can install it over uneven subfloors. Save money and ditch the leveling company by using rigid core flooring.*
- DIYers: Most likely, you won’t need to rip out your existing subfloor. Just interlock and float your rigid core vinyl over your existing surface.
*Note: Rigid core can be installed over most uneven subfloors. If the imperfections are extremely large, some leveling may still be necessary.
