Flooring that looks exactly like solid hardwood but has none of hardwood’s weaknesses? Sounds too good to be true—but that’s exactly what luxury vinyl plank brings to the table for Winston-Salem and Greensboro homeowners. Read on to learn more about what this innovative material has to offer. And don’t forget to contact the experts at Floor Coverings International Triad if you still have questions!
What Is Luxury Vinyl Plank?
Luxury vinyl plank (also referred to as “LVP” for short) is a style of vinyl flooring meant to closely resemble real solid hardwood. Like all other forms of vinyl, LVP is 100% waterproof, affordable, and quick to install. However LVP distinguishes itself from vinyl tiles and sheet vinyl by coming in pre-measured “planks”—essentially long standardized strips that look like hardwood planks.
Luxury vinyl plank comes in different thicknesses for Winston-Salem and Greensboro homeowners to choose from, depending on their needs and lifestyle.
Why Do Homeowners Choose Luxury Vinyl Plank?
There are plenty of reasons you might want LVP for your home. Vinyl is great for kitchens and bathrooms or any moist environment since it is completely water resistant. And since vinyl is a type of “resilient” flooring, most people find it more comfortable to stand on than tile, hardwood, or laminate.
And don’t forget the main reason homeowners choose luxury vinyl planks: it looks exactly like real hardwood! Vinyl is composed of multiple layers, including a top wear-layer that is extremely durable. Just beneath the wear layer is a high-resolution image that can accurately mimic thousands of wood species, stains, and wood-grain patters. High-end LVP doesn’t repeat the same image over and over again, either; there are natural variations in grain and pattern—exactly like real hardwood planks. Additionally, you can choose from a flat or beveled edge, just as you would when selecting solid hardwood planks.
