Luxury Vinyl Plank Guide
Whitt Carpet One Floor & Home is your local retailer for all things wood look and luxury vinyl flooring. Consider installing luxury vinyl flooring in your home if you are looking for a floor that is low maintenance but will also look stunning for years. Luxury vinyl planks combine the natural and authentic looks of hardwood with the durability and resilience of luxury vinyl. Compared to hardwood, luxury vinyl planks are more cost effective.
Below are a few benefits to installing luxury vinyl planks in your home.
Water Resistant Flooring
Unlike hardwood, luxury vinyl will not absorb moisture or water right away, taking away the worry of moisture damaging your floors. Many luxury vinyl plank options are made to be water resistant, but there are options available that are completely waterproof. Achieve the look of hardwood in your bathroom or laundry room where you couldn’t have hardwood before. Luxury vinyl plank flooring is also a pet friendly option. The wear layer of most luxury vinyl planks can resist scratching and can handle accidental pet accidents if you cannot get to them fast enough.
Take a look at our Carpet One Floor & Home exclusive brand Invincible™ H2O. It is a 100% waterproof luxury vinyl plank option that looks just like real hardwood. Not only that but it is backed by our award winning warranties.
Luxury Vinyl Plank Installation
For most luxury vinyl products you can install the planks over any existing subfloor. Some types of luxury vinyl can actually be placed over existing flooring as well. Installation options include glue-down and floating options. Glue-down is a permanent solution, whereas floating floors allow you to have an efficient installation as well as choose to move the flooring to another room in your home.
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. Unlike hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl planks do not need to be refinished, making them a long-lasting and practical option.
