What is Luxury Vinyl Plank?
If you love the look of hardwood, but do not think you are ready to commit to the maintenance of it, then you should take a look at our luxury vinyl plank collection. At Coastal Carpet & Tile Carpet One Floor & Home we carry flooring options for every lifestyle. Luxury vinyl is not only easier to take care of, but it is the budget friendly alternative to hardwood flooring. It can be made to look and even feel exactly like a hardwood floor. We have a wide variety of luxury vinyl plank options to choose from, like oak wood look flooring to hickory. Let’s take a look at the benefits of luxury vinyl plank flooring.
Is Luxury Vinyl Plank Waterproof?
Most luxury vinyl plank floors are made to be water resistant to an extent. There are even completely water proof options available. This means you can install them in rooms like kitchens or bathrooms. They even perform well in places like hallways and entryways where they get exposed to outside elements. Luxury vinyl is made to resist warping or buckling as well.
What is the Best Vinyl Plank Flooring?
You can install luxury vinyl flooring directly on top of most sub floors. Always make sure though that the subfloor is dry and free of dust. There are some types of luxury vinyl can actually be placed over existing flooring as well. You can choose to do 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.
