What is waterproof and rigid core flooring?

Palmetto Road waterproof flooring is a luxury vinyl product with a dense extruded waterproof core made from wood polymer composite (WPC) giving it a unique balance of resilience and rigidity.  It has a strong, protective ceramic bead top wear layer that easily resists scratches, dents and stains. It is 100% waterproof and will not swell or delaminate when exposed to water making it safe to install in bathrooms, basements and kitchens.

Palmetto Road rigid core waterproof flooring collections offer the same benefits as waterproof flooring, however it is has a solid polymer core (SPC) made from powdered limestone, polyvinyl chloride and stabilizers. It is dense, dimensionally stable, quiet and strong.

What safety and environmental requirements does Palmetto Road waterproof flooring meet?

Palmetto Road waterproof flooring is FloorScore® certified and has been tested for CARB II compliance (non-detectable readings).  Palmetto Road uses safe, non ortho-phthalate plasticizers in all of its vinyl flooring products.

What does FloorScore® certification mean to you?

FloorScore is a voluntary, independent certification program that tests and certifies hard surface flooring and the materials they’re made with are in compliance with stringent indoor air quality emissions. The FloorScore program was developed by the Resilient Floor Covering Institute and is certified by a nationally recognized third-party certification company. Basically, the FloorScore certification means healthier, cleaner air inside your home.

How is Palmetto Road waterproof flooring installed?

Palmetto Road waterproof collections can be installed as a floating floor or full spread glue down.  Both collections are waterproof and do not have to be acclimated for moisture.  However, they do need to be acclimated for temperature.

Installation tips:

 Install with planks mixed out of multiple boxes to achieve the mix of color that has been built into the product.
 The planks can be glued down as needed.
 Use a tapping block to ensure the joint is completely “seated” or engaged when clicked together. It is recommended to use the Palmetto Road tapping blocks to ensure proper installation. Note: Different tapping blocks are needed for certain collections. Contact your Palmetto Road flooring retailer for more information.

For complete information, please see the installation instructions.

Is underlayment needed with Palmetto Road waterproof flooring?

Our waterproof and rigid core flooring collections are available with attached pad so, additional underlayment is not needed.  In earlier production runs of our Tidewater, Barrier 20 and Grand Isle collections, the pad was not attached.  With those products, we recommend Silencio Solutions RY1010 underlayment for warranty purposes. Palmetto Road waterproof flooring has been tested on concrete slab with Silencio Solutions underlayment and achieved an IIC rating 62.

Silencio Solutions RY1010 is available through Palmetto Road flooring retailers.
