Our SPC vinyl flooring range is home to engineered luxury vinyl flooring options available at affordable prices in designs that effortlessly imitate the appearance of materials like wood and stone.
Here, you can browse our SPC vinyl flooring collection to find a cost-effective design solution for your floors and learn a little more about what SPC flooring is and why it pays to shop with Tiles Direct.
What is SPC click flooring?
SPC (or stone plastic composite) flooring is a type of engineered luxury vinyl flooring designed for durability and made using natural stone products such as limestone along with plastic for a hardwearing finish. Among the main draws of SPC flooring is its relative affordability compared with the various high-end materials whose appearance it’s designed to imitate.
SPC vinyl flooring comprises four main layers:
- The wear layer: this transparent top layer gives the vinyl planks their stain and scratch resistance for long-term practicality even in high-traffic areas of the home
- The vinyl top coat: a thin, waterproof layer of vinyl can be found on every SPC flooring tile, and it’s this layer that contains the flooring’s unique texture and pattern
- The SPC core: the plank’s hardwearing, waterproof core is made using a combination of limestone powder and stabilisers, ensuring your SPC flooring can withstand ongoing wear and tear
The attached underlayment: not all SPC vinyl flooring includes this layer, which increases softness and sound reduction - a welcome addition in busy homes
Why choose SPC vinyl flooring?
At Tiles Direct, we specialise in tiled flooring, but our SPC vinyl flooring range presents a cost-effective and highly practical alternative to tiles for homeowners and designers looking for something a little different.
There are numerous benefits to decorating your floors with SPC vinyl, from the practical to the aesthetic. Our customers choose SPC flooring thanks to its:
- Affordability: SPC flooring is made from affordable vinyl, making it a lower cost alternative to other flooring materials such as real hardwood and natural stone. Give your floors the luxurious aesthetic of honed marble or rustic oak at a fraction of the price by choosing SPC vinyl click flooring for your home or commercial space
- Easy installation: thanks to its click-lock installation system, SPC vinyl flooring is easy to install even if you’re not a professional tradesperson. Channel your inner DIYer and replace your flooring with minimal hassle using SPC’s tongue and groove installation
- Comfortable feel: you’ll enjoy a cushioned effect underfoot with our stone plastic composite flooring due to its dense core and plank thickness. For even greater comfort, some SPC flooring designs include the aforementioned attached underlayment which gives every plank extra softness
- Soundproofing: the dense core just keeps on giving, as SPC flooring also provides welcome soundproofing. You won’t hear a hollow sound underfloor when walking on your vinyl flooring, making for a softer, quieter sound overall
- Waterproofing: one of the key selling points of SPC vinyl flooring is the fact that it’s 100% waterproof - a major practical benefit. This vinyl flooring’s resistance to water makes it ideal for installation in moisture-prone areas of the home like the kitchen, bathroom and laundry room, as well as in commercial environments like restaurants
- Low-maintenance cleaning: looking after your stone plastic composite flooring will be a breeze, as a simple sweep and a mop with standard cleaning agents will be enough to keep your SPC vinyl looking positively pristine
- Design variety: with colours, imitation finishes and textures galore available with SPC flooring, the sheer variety of design options makes this vinyl click flooring a real crowd-pleaser, with styles to satisfy all tastes and complement various design schemes
