Now, not only do you have the option of having a waterproof floor in your house, but you even have a couple of different kinds to choose from! Both the Supreme Click and Supreme Elite Freedom come in well over 40 different styles each. Your options for waterproof flooring are growing and growing![caption id="attachment_1935" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Brian shows off the Loose Lay vinyl."]
Supreme Elite Freedom Waterproof Loose Lay Vinyl Plank Flooring
** Update – we’ve changed the name! We used to call it Tuff Guy. Now we call it Supreme Elite. Same stuff. Enjoy!
This is a semi-recent thing for us, and a pretty big deal. In July of 2012, a year after the Supreme Click Elite arrived, we received our first four styles of the new Supreme Elite Freedom Loose Lay Vinyl Plank Flooring. We immediately got all excited about how this flooring installs (see below) - and that makes sense. That's what was so new about it, not just for us, but in the flooring industry. But what we may have accidentally treated as passé at the time was the fact that this flooring is also 100% waterproof.
Below, our guy Shawn demonstrates the installation.

In July of 2011 we got in our first shipment of our Supreme Click Elite Waterproof Vinyl Plank Flooring. As Brian discusses, it's a vinyl plank floor designed to give the wood plank look we expect of hardwood and laminate, but with the added benefit of being - not just water resistant, but fully, 100% waterproof.[caption id="attachment_1935" align="alignleft" width="400" caption="Our 'Aquarium Test' "]
To make absolutely sure of the waterproofness (not a word, I know), we stuck a few pieces into an aquarium, along with some other types of flooring which are not waterproof, and soaked them for three straight days to see what would happen. Our QA Specialist Hayley and I discuss what we're putting into the drink, there's a jaunty little time lapse of the three days, and then we pull the pieces out and show what the water did to each one. It's fascinating stuff.
And below, Brian demonstrates how the planks lock together. These have the most common type of click together installation system, and he's demonstrating that generally, but the flooring he uses for the demo are the Supreme Click Elite Waterproof planks, so you can really see how easy they are to work with in this video.
