Many of us still dream of having wood floors in our homes but feel uncomfortable with the idea of destroying trees to achieve the look we crave.
WPC flooring is today’s answer for environmentally friendly flooring.
What Is WPC?
Around since the late 50s and early 60s, Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) was originally pure plastic moulded into floor plank shapes.
But the material has come a long way since then. From garden decking to kitchen floors, fencing to car door panels, the material is incredibly versatile and durable.
No surprise then that it’s commonly used for both commercial and residential flooring.
With the environment in mind, manufacturers of WPC flooring use recycled materials for the core of the flooring planks.
Recycled plastics and wood manufacturing by-products, such as wood fibers, are commonly used. That’s good news for us, and for the environment.
Republic Floor, a manufacturer of high- quality flooring based in California and Texas, describes their engineered WPC products as “the closest you’ll ever get to a wood floor without cutting down a tree”.
So, if you’re looking to green-consciously remodel your house, check out the options available from leading flooring companies like Republic Floor to upgrade your home using easy to install and environmentally-friendly materials.
WPC Flooring Is Durable
Today’s WPC flooring is tough, durable, and can be cut to any shape required.
Unlike traditional wooden floors, it is waterproof and resistant to high temperatures. It is also inert and, once laid using environmentally-friendly adhesives, it won’t shift or buckle.
Customize your Home with WPC Flooring
The flooring can be colored to reflect your design choice and the top vinyl layer can be embossed or etched to recreate the look of wooden planks, ceramic tiles, stone or other styles.
Custom-made options start with a consultation with Republic Floor experts who will guide you and help refine your design.
If you’re dreaming of that Tuscan kitchen with ceramic floor tiles, or an English country kitchen with aged oak wooden floors, you can select from the huge range of styles and designs that give you the vibe you want without the hassles of maintaining a real ceramic tile or wood floor.
Easy to maintain and keep clean, WPC flooring is perfect for areas of your home that need regular cleaning and for high traffic locations such as kitchens.
WPC in its earliest days was revolutionary. Today’s revolution is in the endless choices and efficiency that it offers us without tearing down precious forests. Roll on the next generation of super flooring!
