SPC Vinyl Flooring stands for stone plastic composite vinyl flooring. Similar to WPC vinyl, an SPC vinyl is an engineered luxury vinyl that combines limestone and stabilizers to create an extremely durable core. An SPC vinyl floor is still 100% waterproof, but adds stability, dent resistance and structure to vinyl plank flooring.

What is laminate flooring?
Laminate flooring is a synthetic floor covering that has been designed to look like wood flooring or sometimes stone flooring. It has been a popular choice with DIY enthusiasts for decades.
Traditionally it offered a cheaper alternative to real wood. Any keen home renovator can install laminate flooring without the need of a professional floor fitter.
In the early days of laminate flooring, the quality was quite poor. Although the idea was that it should mimic hardwood flooring, it was very easy to tell them apart by look and feel. In more recent years the quality of laminate flooring has significantly increased. Our reputable manufacturers and suppliers ensure that more superior and authentic looking styles are available.
In recent years there has also been more choice of designs and styles of laminate flooring. Traditionally laminate was only available in a wood effect. Over more recent years, different designs and effects have been developed to provide you with a wider choice of options. You will be able to choose from effects such as: stone tiles, ceramic tiles and a wide range of different species of wood and bamboo.
Someone may easily mistake good quality laminate flooring for a wooden floor. However, laminate flooring does not contain any real wood at all. Each plank is made up of various synthetic layers and topped with a photograph of wood (or stone). The surface layer can sometimes have a built-in scratch guard for added protection. The top surface of the floor is water resistant so can cope with the occasional spill or splash
Maintaining Your Laminate Floor
Maintaining and looking after your new laminate floor is very easy. Keep it clean by regular sweeping. You can remove more stubborn stains with a wood floor cleaner spray and mop. Remember to wipe away water straight away and protect you floor from damage by using felt protector pads on the bottom of furniture.
