About Vinyl Plank Flooring
Hardwood floors are known to be beautiful and durable to some degree. The high initial cost and tedious maintenance though make them less desirable. Luxury vinyl is the budget friendly alternative to hardwood flooring. Luxury vinyl plank flooring is made to look just like a real hardwood floor, all the way down to the grain and even texture. Many planks come in an array of wood styles, colors, and patters. There are many benefits to installing luxury vinyl flooring in your home instead of hardwood.
Water Resistant and Waterproof Vinyl Plank
Luxury vinyl floors are made to be water resistant, which is already an advantage over hardwood flooring. The planks will not absorb moisture, eliminating the worry of cupping or cracking. You can have the look of hardwood in your kitchen as well as mudroom without having to constantly make sure they are completely dry.
We also offer completely waterproof luxury vinyl planks as well. So now you can have the look of hardwood in your bathroom and in your laundry room. Waterproof luxury vinyl takes away the worry of excessive water damage caused by constant exposure to moisture. We have waterproof options like the Carpet One exclusive Invincible H2O, that can be installed anywhere in your home worry free.
Luxury vinyl planks are made with a wear layer that protects the image layer of luxury vinyl. The wear layer is made up of a thick plastic film that can resist scuffs and scratches. Pet claws are no match against the surface of luxury vinyl, and will not cause as much damage as they would on hardwood floors.
Installation and Maintenance
Luxury vinyl floors are quick and easy to install and most of them you can walk on the same day as they are installed. You can choose to glue down luxury vinyl planks for a more permanent solution. You also have the option of a floating floor installation, where the planks fit together like puzzle pieces and can be uninstalled and placed in another room. Floating floors are becoming more popular because they are quick to install, and do not require much subfloor prep.
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 with warm water and soft soap.
