Vinyl Planks

Vinyl Planks

The hottest new thing on the flooring market is waterproof flooring. Now you can get that gorgeous, homey wood look you’ve been craving in every room of the home. Get ready to dive headfirst into the world of waterproof flooring. What can be better than having 100% Waterproof flooring? Life has its spills. It’s just a fact of…well…life. That’s why Luxury Vinyl Planks keeps liquids from seeping below your floor, giving you one less thing to worry about. Think about any large spills that might have happened in your house. Like that one time when your child dropped the open gallon of milk, and it spilled everywhere, or when your adorable puppy accidentally confused the corner next to the tv with the grass in the backyard.

This is when waterproof flooring comes to the rescue. Kids, pets, parties and other spill-inducing scenarios can be a nightmare. However, waterproof flooring is a solution that can help you rest at ease. Vinyl plank flooring is pretty much the Superman of the flooring industry.

Here’s a quick look at just a few of the qualities that make it so awesome.

  • Ultra-durable. WPC is known for being the best of the best, showcasing the thickest, most durable luxury vinyl with the thickest wear layers for optimal scratch protection.
  • 100% waterproof. And guaranteed by the manufacturers.
  • Perfect for imperfect subfloors. Little known fact: because waterproof vinyl plank flooring is so thick and durable, it can hide an imperfect subfloor. I know, I know, you don’t care what the subfloor looks like. But do you care about dropping a bunch of extra money leveling it beforehand? With waterproof luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring, oftentimes, you won’t have to.
  • Realistic wood and stone look. Seriously, vinyl is changing. Rapidly. The top-end vinyl floors are able to more realistically mimic natural materials better than ever before. WPC vinyl is the best of the best, which means the looks are usually incredibly convincing and beautiful.
  • More resilient than ceramic tile. It’s true, you could just get a wood or stone look tile, and it would also be waterproof. But tile is hard. Standing on a tile floor all day isn’t great for your joints or feet. Vinyl is more resilient and much more comfortable.
  • Low maintenance. All you need is the occasional vacuum and damp mop to keep your planks looking fabulous.

We’ve already seen a new generation of products out in the marketplace with enhanced stability, durability and stain and indent resistance. And, there is a laser focus on bringing out realistic visuals.

  • Printed vinyl layer. This is where you get your gorgeous photo imagery that makes the vinyl look (nearly) identical to natural materials like stone and wood. Often, WPC Vinyl flooring is the highest quality vinyl on the market. This means you get the most realistic looks that people will swear are real wood/stone!
  • Wear layer. Just like with traditional vinyl, the wear layer is like your bodyguard; it helps protect your floor from dents, scratches, etc. The thicker the wear layer, the buffer your bodybuilder. Vinyl indoor flooring is known for having a buff, beefy wear layers offering more protection. When you look at vinyl flooring, it’s just as (if not more) important to look at wear layer thickness as plank thickness. *Can vary between manufacturers.

This is just the beginning. I expect suppliers to continue to innovate in the coming years to help fuel the growth of this category.

The Pros

  • The biggest advantage of vinyl plank flooring is the fact that it is 100% water resistant. This makes it the ideal flooring solution for spaces such as basements, kitchens, and bathrooms. In addition, vinyl plank flooring is very durable with commercial grade wear layers and fiberglass reinforcement.
  • Vinyl can be installed on nearly any sub-floor, with the thicker floors being forgiving to imperfect sub-floors. Luxury vinyl plank flooring can also be glued down which is something that may be attractive to homeowners. The affordability, durability and natural wood look make vinyl plank flooring a great option for busy spaces without the price tag of authentic wood.
  • You can install the floating vinyl plank flooring over the existing one without a problem. It’s not difficult to install new floating vinyl planks over your old laminate, ceramics, or concrete, as long as you prepare the existing flooring properly.

The Cons

As with any product, there are disadvantages associated with vinyl plank flooring. If you choose to glue down your vinyl plank flooring, the removal process is known to be very difficult. If you are installing vinyl as a temporary solution, it is recommended you avoid glue to make the removal as easy as possible.

Vinyl plank flooring is very durable, however, it can be punctured with very sharp objects. For example, if a kitchen knife gets dropped with the point down on the vinyl plank flooring, it is likely there will be a visible scar. Vinyl plank flooring also does not have the wood feel of laminate or especially hardwood, but advances in the appearance are continually improving. When walking on vinyl flooring with shoes, it does not have the rich wooden sound a natural wood floor would.

Floating vinyl plank flooring is perfect for people who stand on their feet most of the time. You will be surprised how comfortable and quiet this floor can be. The floating vinyl plank flooring is natural and comfortable flooring to walk on. It looks and feels warmer than any other flooring solution.
