There are several benefits to owning and installing luxury vinyl in your home.
Waterproof Flooring Options
A benefit of luxury vinyl planks that you will not get with hardwood is water resistance and waterproof qualities. Unlike hardwood, luxury vinyl will not absorb moisture or water right away, taking away the worry of moisture damaging your floors. Achieve the look of hardwood in your bathroom or laundry room where you couldn’t have hardwood before.
Take a look at our Carpet One exclusive brand Invincible H2O, it’s a 100% waterproof luxury vinyl plank option that looks just like real hardwood.
Luxury Vinyl Plank Installation
You can install most luxury vinyl flooring directly on top of subflooring. Some types of luxury vinyl can actually be placed over existing flooring as well. You can choose to do a glue down installation which is relatively permanent, or there is an option called a floating installation system, where the planks lock together. 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.
The wear layer of luxury vinyl planks is extra durable and can resist scratches and scuffs from shoes, dirt, and pets. Unlike hardwood, you do not have to refinish luxury vinyl floors, and replacing a plank is incredibly easy.
