What is SPC flooring?

SPC stands for Stone Plastic Composite and is the most modern material used in vinyl flooring. This composite material provides strong, rigid and resilient properties to lvt flooring products.

If you are wondering what is SPC flooring made of, it’s Limestone and Plasticisers (stone plastic composite)

If you are wondering what is WPC flooring made of, it’s a Wood Plastic Composite.

The increased durability of SPC vinyl makes it ideal for high traffic areas.

It is common for people to make the mistake of trying to compare SPC flooring vs lvt flooring, a SPC is a type of lvt flooring, not a separate floor type.

SPC flooring lifespan can be around 30 years for high quality products.

Is SPC flooring a good option?

SPC flooring is the most popular type of click lvt flooring at present as it is the most resilient.

Some of the benefits of SPC flooring include;

• 100% Waterproof
• Suitable for Underfloor Heating
• Highly Durable
• Flooring usually has built in underlay
• Quick and Easy to install
• Wide range of colours and patterns available

A great indicator of quality is the length of the warranty provided on a product. The LVT flooring products in our vinyl tile range have a Lifetime Residential Warranty and are some of the best SPC flooring products available in the UK.

Here is our Stone Oak SPC LVT Flooring. The resiliant properties of SPC Vinyl make it perfect for kitchen and bathroom areas

Does SPC flooring feel cold?

In comparison to carpet, spc vinyl flooring can feel cold to walk on with bare feet.

In comparison to stone tiles, spc vinyl feels warmer to walk on with bare feet.

However coldness from both stone tiles and spc flooring can be completely solved with underfloor heating, as both of these floor types work brilliantly with underfloor heating systems.

SPC flooring installation is designed to be as quick and easy as possible and well suited to DIY projects. The underlay is built into the planks and the planks simply click together. No glue and no separate underlay required!


Is SPC flooring soundproof?

SPC flooring has impresive sound reducing properties as acoustic underlay is usually built into the planks and tiles, which reduces the transfer of sound from floors on levels above. This makes it a great choice for flats where floor types such as wood and laminate can create significant noise for the properties underneath.

SPC flooring price range in the UK anywhere from around £15.00 M2 to £70.00 M2 depending on the product and the brand.
