Vinyl Plank Flooring
Add natural wood looks to areas with moisture and heavy foot traffic
What Is Vinyl Plank?
Hardwood, given its natural looks, is a preferred flooring option for homes, but it is simply not durable enough for every setting. Even laminate flooring, which is more dimensionally stable and wear resistant than hardwood, cannot handle certain settings. How, then, can you add natural wood looks to these high-traffic and high-moisture areas? You can opt for vinyl plank flooring.
Vinyl plank flooring, which is sometimes referred to as vinyl wood flooring, looks and even can feel like real wood, but it features a totally synthetic construction. As a result, vinyl plank can handle foot traffic and moisture much better than real wood and laminate. Furthermore, most vinyl plank floors have unique inner layers that provide exceptional dimensional stability to the individual planks. Vinyl planks therefore will rarely, if ever, expand, contract, crack, or collapse in any way.
Given its premium performance, vinyl plank flooring can be installed virtually anywhere in your home. It can handle kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and other areas with moisture, and it also is suitable for family rooms and other high-traffic areas. Hardwood and laminate simply are not durable enough for these settings! At the same time, vinyl plank floors can be installed over most subfloors, even those that aren’t perfectly flat and even.
Vinyl plank flooring definitely gives you the opportunity to add the natural looks of hardwood to your home, without having to worry about spills, stains, and scratches.
