About Vinyl Plank Flooring
Hardwood has a reputation of adding style and value to a home, but it cannot be installed throughout your home, and are not suitable for all types of homes. Get the same authentic look as hardwood with vinyl plank flooring. Vinyl planks are a specific type of luxury vinyl flooring that combines the real look of hardwood and the performance you expect from luxury vinyl.
Luxury vinyl gets its durability from its multilayer construction. The top wear layer is stronger than the surface of a wood plank, and can resist most scratches and scuffs. It also protects the image layer from spills and stains. The image layer is a high-definition wood visual and gives luxury vinyl planks their authentic wood looks. Because of its multi-layer construction, luxury vinyl is dimensionally stable, and will not warp or otherwise change form like a solid wood plank would.
Vinyl Plank vs Hardwood
Luxury vinyl has a tougher wear layer than hardwood does, meaning it can resist scuffs, scratches, and spills. The wear layer also protects the luxury vinyl plank from wear, and unlike hardwood, luxury vinyl planks do not need to be finished. They are also more cost effective, making them a budget friendly alternative. Last but definitely not least, is that luxury vinyl is amazing at replicating the exact look of hardwood flooring, meaning you have an unlimited choice when it comes to style.
Waterproof Vinyl Plank Flooring
All luxury vinyl planks are water resistant to an extent, but not all are waterproof. Waterproof luxury vinyl planks are made with materials such as limestone dust and PVC composites that make them completely resistant to water. So, unlike hardwood or laminate, luxury vinyl planks will not warp or swell due to exposure to moisture. Most waterproof luxury vinyl floors are sealed tight, so water will never slip past the surface.
