Can I find waterproof flooring with underlayment?

Wood-look and tile look luxury vinyl are attractive, quite functional, and versatile, and they are superior waterproof floors.

You can find a large assortment of vinyl planks and tiles, available with or without underlayment, at A.W. Bergey & Sons in Harleysville, Pennsylvania. Our family-owned business has been part of the flooring industry for over 70 years.


While waterproof flooring options are diverse, you can't go wrong by choosing luxury vinyl flooring. You can place it anywhere in your home, and because it's stain and scratch-resistant and easy to clean, it's both child and pet-friendly.
In addition, some vinyl planks and tiles click and lock together, so the floor floats over the wood or cement subfloor or existing hard surface floor.

Floating floors

Most homeowners opt for floating floor luxury vinyl brands, although glue-down vinyl brands that don't require underlayment are also available. Specifically, it's best to place underlayment beneath floating waterproof floors to

●  add insulation and warmth in colder months.

●  smooth out imperfections that might exist on the subfloor.

●  provide cushioning underfoot, extra moisture protection, and sound dampening.

Attached underlayment

While it's more common to use underlayment separate from plank and tile vinyl flooring, some brands feature attached underlayment.

One step of the installation process is eliminated when you choose this option, although installing a moisture barrier is still necessary. That's because moisture tends to seep through the gaps with attached underlayment.
