Vinyl flooring, often also referred to as luxury vinyl flooring, is a manufactured type of flooring designed to replicate the look and feel of traditional tile and wood flooring. Luxury vinyl flooring is usually more affordable than its natural counterparts and has some added benefits that make it an optimal choice for families and pet owners.
When it comes to vinyl flooring there are three main types – luxury vinyl planks, luxury vinyl tile, and sheet vinyl.
Vinyl flooring is naturally moisture resistant but there are also 100% completely waterproof options. Luxury vinyl flooring is manufactured with a waterproof core that ensures the floor does not expand or contract when exposed to moisture. This makes vinyl flooring especially ideal for those looking for a wood look in moisture-prone rooms. The durable ware layer on top of the vinyl floor makes it easy to wipe away any spills or splashes so kids and pets can keep making a mess without the stress!
Yes! Luxury vinyl flooring is incredibly durable. Vinyl floors are able to stand up against scratches and scuffs with ease, and the thicker the ware layer the more durable – and stain resistant – the vinyl is. Luxury vinyl planks are often more durable than traditional hardwood floors and won’t scratch as easily which means you won’t need to worry about refinishing them.
Yes, vinyl flooring is incredibly easy to install! There are multiple ways that vinyl flooring can be installed including glue down and the ‘click-lock’ method. The ‘click-lock’ method involves clicking and locking the vinyl planks or tiles together over the subfloor. This creates what is known as a floating floor which allows individual planks or tiles to be removed and replaced with ease. However, this installation method is not recommended when you plan on placing cabinetry or large appliances on top of the luxury vinyl floor as this makes it hard to remove and replace them should they become damaged. The floor must also be completely flat in order to use the "click-lock" method. No need to stress though, our installation experts can help determine which method is best for your project.
