Luxury Vinyl Plank
According to thespruce.com, “At its heart, plank vinyl floor, also called luxury vinyl plank (LVP) or luxury vinyl tile (LVT), is simply vinyl flooring that comes in long, narrow strips rather than the traditional square tile shapes. But structurally this is a different product. Sheet vinyl is generally flexible vinyl with a printed top layer covered by a clear wear layer-The higher the wear layer the more protection from scratching, while vinyl plank flooring is a multi-ply product that features four layersA topmost layer of aluminum oxide, designed to prevent light scratching and scuffs
  • A clear film layer that protects against more severe ripping and tearing
  • A design layer that provides the photo-realistic look of wood or stone
  • A backing layer made of fairly rigid vinyl, comprising almost 90 percent of the total thickness of luxury vinyl”
So why consider luxury vinyl plank flooring?
It’s affordable. If you’re on a budget LVP is a less expensive option than traditional hardwood.

LVP is waterproof! This makes it a great option for kitchens and bathrooms.  It is also more scratch resistant than hardwood   Because of its ability to resist stains and odors, it is also a great option for families with pets!
Once you choose to use LVP you’ll be amazed at the color and design options available. From dark wood tones to light, mixed-width planks, and even “distressed” looks you can find an LVP flooring option that fits your style and home.

In some situations LVP can be installed over any existing flooring, too. There are options for click lock installation, loose-lay installation or glue down installation.

Finally, LVP is easy to maintain. You won’t need to do more than sweep and mop regularly with standard floor cleaners to keep your LVP flooring looking its best.
