What Is Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring?
Shopping for new flooring can be confusing. It gets even harder when you fall in love with a floor that just will not work for your home. We have the answers to your questions at Carpet King Carpet One Floor & Home in Keene. If you love the look of that hardwood floor but can’t find room in your budget or have kids and pets, then maybe luxury vinyl plank is the option for you. LVP is quickly becoming a popular alternative to hardwood flooring.
First, we’ll cover what luxury vinyl plank flooring is. LVP is made of multiple layers of synthetic materials; this makes it stronger and more durable than hardwood. Its multiple layers all protect the floor from everyday challenges. The wear layer protects the image layer and the core from dust, dirt, and spills. In some cases the core can be made to be waterproof like Invincible H2O. Luxury vinyl planks can be made to look just like real hardwood because of advanced technology. So no longer do you have to worry about your wood floors being damaged.
In addition to looking just like hardwood, LVP is easier to clean and install. You don’t need to use nails to install LVP and you do not have to worry about the planks expanding or contracting due to changes in weather. What is even better is LVP can be installed in just about every room of your home, adding beauty and functionality to your bedroom, kitchen, even finished basement.
