Traditional wooden flooring is prone to termites and rot. Being a natural material, it absorbs water which if not treated, allows rot to set in. It is also prone to termites which eat and destroy wood. SPC vinyl tiles has often been used to replicate wooden flooring. It is made of manmade PVC which allows it to be resistant to rot and termites. It is also more resilient. Unlike wood, SPC vinyl can withstand heavy foot traffic and sudden heavy impacts for many years.

Therefore these wood-like tiles are much easier to install and are less harmful. SPC vinyl wood grain tiles use interlocking ridges to secure them together. They are placed on the floor and lined up so that the ridges interlock. No glue is required.
