Luxury vinyl plank flooring is quickly becoming one of the top flooring choices in the greater Woodbridge area. Not only is it versatile, it’s an extremely durable alternative to hardwood flooring that looks great!
At Floor Coverings International Woodbridge, we are dedicated to helping home and businesses owners alike find the perfect flooring for their needs. Luxury vinyl plank is a great option for both home and commercial applications and we think you should learn more about it!
Luxury vinyl plank, or LVP, is similar to luxury vinyl tile in its 100% vinyl construction, which makes it impervious to water and moisture and resilient to heavy foot traffic. Its surface is complete with a wood grain texture and graphic that closely resembles a variety of hardwood species, from maple to walnut, and a variety of finishes.
Just as its name suggests, LVP does not take the same form as traditional sheet vinyl; but instead, individual planks with interlocking edges that help improve the material’s ability to mimic hardwood flooring. Each plank is finished with a tough wear layer that makes it extra durable and easy to maintain.
Design and Applications
Luxury vinyl plank flooring is a great choice to achieve the classic look of wood flooring in places you might not expect it, such as bathrooms or basements. Vinyl’s natural resistance to water also helps prevent mold and mildew, which great in spaces with high levels of moisture. These planks can even be installed with a non-porous grout to create a complete sealed flooring.
Another great feature is LVP’s flexibility when it comes to installation. Unlike solid hardwood flooring, these planks don’t require glue or nails to keep them in place. They can even be installed directly on top of existing flooring, such as tile or old sheet vinyl, saving you time and money on the cost of installation. What’s more, this great flooring choice can even be installed on your stairs! In general, it’s a great material for any busy area in your home or commercial space where you want durable floors.
