"REAL Hardwood. REAL Moisture Protection. When only the natural beauty and warmth of real hardwood will do, OptiWood provides 100% waterproof wood with HDPC vinyl rigid core flooring solutions for the home or office. Guaranteed to outperform traditional engineered hardwood, this 100% waterproof wood couples the performance virtues of rigid core flooring with the unique ""character"" of real hardwood and none of the repeat patters found in vinyl or laminate. It looks and feels like real hardwood - because it is! The secret lies in our patent pending High Density Plastic Composite (HDPC) rigid core technology. HDPC makes the flooring 2X harder than solid hardwood and resists dents and scratches. The increased strength and density of the rigid core that hides sub-floor imperfections combined with a click locking system which floats over most existing hard surface floors is a perfect solution for the DIY homeowner. The waterproof wood has an attached foam pad that eliminates the cost of added underlayment, reduces sound transmission and increases comfort when walking. Backed by a lifetime residential warranty, OptiWood waterproof wood is CARB 2 certified and EPA (TSCA title VI) compliant. It also has the coveted GREENGUARD Gold certification, which provides safer and healthier indoor home and work environments. Waterproof peace of mind, the added benefit of a safer product, and the tough Aluminum Oxide finish provides the right flooring solution for active families or the office. Color: Light."
