Is waterproof flooring a good choice for an outdoor patio?

There are plenty of ways you can put waterproof flooring to work in your home, especially in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and children’s rooms. But if you need a floor covering for an outdoor patio, can you still draw from this same product line for the results you want and need?

What to know about outdoor waterproof flooring

The benefits of waterproof flooring are easy to fall in love with and include 100% protection against water damage, mold, mildew, and foul odors. That means the flooring will last longer because it's more durable in situations that would destroy some floor coverings.

Waterproof vinyl flooring also offers exceptional protection from scuffs, scratches, and dents, leaving them looking better longer without much extra maintenance. They're easy to clean, with just a broom and damp mop, and can offer lifespans of over 20 years with professional installation.

Regarding outdoor installation, it's important to remember that while these floors are waterproof, they aren't weatherproof. If you will use these pieces for outdoor patios, choose the highest level of durability, including protective topcoats that guard well against UV rays and extreme temperatures for the best waterproof floors.
