Our streets turn into rivers, the rains seem to hit harder each May, and the levee system is questionable at best. The Greater Houston area has a flooding problem.
Some are luckier than others but as we have seen there are no sure things. Places that have never flooded in the past are unfortunately seeing water settle as development continues and the avenues of these natural events continue to move along.

The key is in the way vinyl flooring is structured that creates its uncanny ability to survive coming in contact with water where other flooring styles may fail.
Vinyl flooring is created with various layers, each serving a specific purpose to the overall integrity of the flooring:
SPC flooring can also be composed with an additional layer known as an Attached Underlayment which can help reduce the amount of noise the flooring creates as well as provide additional comfort to the occupants. Not all SPC flooring come with this layer but it is a feature of many.
