This would require glue to attach to the floors. The glue is very weak to cork and can cause it to become disintegrated over time. The glue may also harden as it dries and can separate. Further, you will need to install stair noses on the front of each tread, and these stair noses are raises (as these are floating floors and it’s the only way to attach them), and the height difference can create a tripping hazard 👍 And, of course if the step underneath isn’t even, the flooring may bounce 🔥 And, you will also need to install shoe molding or quarter round around all of the edges, and this in my opinion looks sloppy and cheap on the steps
Rigid Core WPC/SPC Flooring is similar to LVP. It’s made of layers. This combination makes the flooring suitable for both residential and commercial spaces. An attached layer of cork or foam is the base layer. It provides support underfoot as well as sound absorption. On top of that is the core – where these Rigid Core flooring options get their names – made of a composite of wood or stone powder and plastic or resin. You will find the vinyl layer immediately on top of the core. It uses digital technology for colour correction and perfect printing. Wear layer is what makes this flooring unique. It provides scratch and scuff resistance.

LVP is also said to be waterproof. Let’s quantify that. LVP will not be damaged by water. Floors, broken water lines, precious princes and princesses running in from the pool….no problem for your LVP. It is waterproof, but not impervious to water. You can still use it as a water-resistant coating. leave water There is always the chance of moisture getting into the joints, even if the floor is top-of-the-line. What about the water that seeps around your perimeter? Yeah, there’s that. With a concrete subfloor, it had really won’t matter, but to a wooden subfloor, it would be a much bigger issue. Note to self….clean up water in a reasonable amount of time. Call my insurance adjuster. Frances Springer updated this information on March 24, 2020
