  • Warranty — SPC  usually comes with good manufacturing warranties that typically increase with the thickness of the wear layer and plank core.


Application Considerations of SPC Flooring


While the core is very durable, the top wear layer will show noticeable scratches with excessive use. It is ideal for regular use in residential and light commercial applications but is not recommended for high-traffic commercial spaces.


Must be applied on a flat surface and cannot be installed in outdoor spaces.


If you place SPC  in an area with ample natural light, it will fade over time. We do not recommend using it in sunrooms.


4 Most Common Types of SPC Flooring


Regular Single-Layer SPC Flooring


Regular single-layer SPC flooring is the most common, affordable, and quality-assured type. Suitable for some projects or commercial use such as lobbies, stores, etc. It is also ideal for people on a tight budget. Prices range from several cents to 2 USD per sq ft.


Regular Double-Layer SPC Flooring


Also known as BA core or ABA  core flooring. When you walk on this type of flooring, the foot feel is better. This sand wedge (sand wedge)  structure makes the flooring more stable. Its cost is  5% to 20% higher than single-layer SPC flooring. Homeowners often prefer this type of engraved faux wood flooring with EVA or IXPE foam backing


EIR SPC Flooring


EIR (Embossed in Register) SPC flooring looks just like real wood flooring after embossing. This is also the most high-end SPC flooring currently on the market.EIR SPC  flooring costs  20% to 50% more than double-layer SPC flooring. It looks highly aesthetic and realistic, making it ideal for homeowners with pets.
