About Vinyl Plank Flooring

Are you in love with the look of hardwood flooring but are not ready to commit to the maintenance and upkeep of it? Then you should consider luxury vinyl plank flooring for your next home flooring project. Luxury vinyl is the new budget friendly alternative to hardwood flooring compared to laminate. It is made to look just like a real hardwood floor and comes in planks that can vary in size and width. You can choose from hundreds of styles that can mimic details all the way to the grain. There are several benefits to owning and installing luxury vinyl in your home.

Water Resistant Flooring

Most luxury vinyl floors come as water resistant. You can have wood look flooring through your home including the kitchen and bathroom. Unlike hardwood, luxury vinyl will not absorb moisture or water right away, which means you do not have to worry about warping or buckling. There are even waterproof options like the Carpet One exclusive Invincible H2O, that can be installed anywhere in your home worry free.

Some luxury vinyl planks come as scratch and scuff resistant. No longer worry about dirt scratching up your beautiful wood floors. Luxury vinyl’s wear layer is a thick plastic film that protects the image layer from damage.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

You can install luxury vinyl flooring directly on top of the subfloor. Some types of luxury vinyl can actually be placed over existing flooring as well. You can choose to do a glue down installation or there is an option called a floating installation system, where the planks lock together. If you’re not looking to put a lot of effort into cleaning your floors, then luxury vinyl is a good option for you because it only requires regular maintenance such as sweeping and occasional mopping.
