Luxury Vinyl Plank Guide
Angelos Carpet One Floor & Home is here to help you find the right floor for your home. Luxury vinyl planks are a combination of luxury vinyl’s durability and hardwood’s natural beauty. Luxury vinyl is easier on your budget than hardwood so you do not have to sacrifice style for functionality. You can choose from our collection of styles that can mimic details all the way to the grain of a plank. There are several benefits to owning and installing luxury vinyl in your home.
What is Luxury Vinyl Plank?
Luxury vinyl plank is a revolutionary flooring type that is changing the way homeowners look at their flooring. Luxury vinyl is known to be more water resistant than hardwood, and there are also options that are totally waterproof. Luxury vinyl is made to repel water from the surface, so if you cannot get to a mess or spill right away it is no cause for worry. You can have the look of hardwood flooring just about anywhere in your home, even in places like bathrooms and laundry rooms where you could not have hardwood before.
Is Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring Durable?
There are certain types of luxury vinyl can be placed over existing flooring, and most other luxury vinyl floors can be installed over any existing subfloor. Glue down installation is an option, but there is also a more modern option called a floating installation system, where the planks lock together. This install method is not only a time saver but also allows you to move around your flooring about your home.
If you need a floor that does not require a lot of maintenance and is easy to clean then luxury vinyl is a good option for you because it only requires simple cleaning such as sweeping and occasional mopping. Unlike hardwood flooring, luxury vinyl planks do not need to be refinished and you can replace single planks when one becomes damaged.
Carpet One Floor & Home features our own waterproof option known as Invincible™ H2O. These revolutionary floors are everything you need and more when it comes to being beautiful, long-lasting, and durable. Pets and accidental spills are no match against these floors.
