Luxury Vinyl Plank
Hardwood floors are incredibly popular, but they can be expensive, difficult to maintain, and susceptible to moisture and humidity. If you’ve ever wanted the look of hardwood without the hassle, luxury vinyl plank is perfect. It beautifully mirrors authentic hardwood by using advanced imaging and texturing techniques. It also comes in plank formats that differ in width and length for added realism, and it can have beveled edges. Fox Floors Carpet One Floor & Home in Staten Island, NY has what you need when it comes to flooring. We carry a beautiful collection of the best luxury vinyl available, including plank and tile formats, as well as 100% waterproof selections.
Luxury vinyl plank flooring has a wide range of advantages. First, it’s indistinguishable from real hardwood for most consumers. In fact, if you’ve stepped into an apartment, restaurant, cafe, or downtown business recently, you’ve probably walked on luxury vinyl without realizing it wasn’t real hardwood, tile, or stone. In addition to its high-end appearance, luxury vinyl is built using a durable, layered construction that isn’t ruined by humidity or moisture. The wear layer of LVP flooring resists scratches and scuffs from shoes, dirt, and pets. Maintenance is also simple and requires minimal effort.
While most luxury vinyl can withstand excess moisture or humidity without buckling, expanding, or contracting like hardwood, there are also completely waterproof luxury vinyl planks and waterproof luxury vinyl tiles available. These have a watertight seal and specialized core layer that prevents puddles from sinking below the surface of the floor and moving to the subfloor. Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is perfect if you want the elegant appearance of hardwood in your kitchen, bathroom, entryway, or other high-moisture room without the worry. We carry the best waterproof luxury vinyl flooring available, including our exclusive brand Invincible™ H2O™.
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 click-lock together. Ask our flooring experts which installation process is best for your lifestyle.
