Is luxury vinyl flooring a good choice for humid spaces?

Luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile flooring tolerate hot and humid weather, which is why it's so prevalent in Florida. When folks in the Pensacola and Gulf Breeze area shop for LVT and LVP flooring, they love stopping by Gene's Floor Covering. 

Our project specialists can guide you through your home improvement project and help you find the vinyl plank or tile that meets your needs.


Like hardwood, luxury vinyl flooring reacts to fluctuations in temperature and humidity level, which means it's natural for planks and tiles to expand and contract. Our installers accommodate this change when they lay your floors, so you never need to worry about buckling.

Set your thermostat at a comfortable level and maintain your HVAC system; your vinyl floors will have a long life.

Waterproof core

Multiple-layer tile and vinyl plank flooring with a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core is waterproof. This well-made type of luxury vinyl flooring also has a thick wear layer on the surface to protect the wood or tile image layer.

You can count on WPC and SPC luxury vinyl floors to perform well in your home; it even tolerates standing water. 


Some luxury vinyl flooring clicks and locks together so the installers can construct a floating floor without attachment to the subfloor.

Padding is laid during the installation process, and it can include a vapor barrier that keeps moisture away from the floor. Glue-down and loose-lay brands that butt together to create a semi-permanent floor are also available.
