Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring sounds like an oxymoron. Who thinks of the words luxury and vinyl together? Almost no one. That is until now.
Vinyl plank flooring can be a great option for those who have a tight budget, but they want the look and feel of a wood floor. These vinyl planks are installed as floating floors, so there is no need to glue them down and the install process is easy once you get the hang of it. If you don’t like the idea of installing your own flooring, don’t worry, we can do that for you.
Vinyl plan flooring is also durable and in the higher end luxury vinyl, it can be difficult to tell the difference between it and an actual hardwood floor. The advantage of the luxury vinyl floors is they stand up to wear and tear well. The disadvantage they have over real wood floors is they can’t be sanded down and refinished should something happen.
The cost of the highest grade of Luxury Vinyl plan flooring can get close to the cost of engineered hardwood, so that is something to consider. But from what I have heard and read in different periodicals, the vinyl plank flooring is great for active households with pets, children and who live near the ocean.
