What Is Luxury Vinyl Plank?

Luxury vinyl plank is flooring that comes as individual planks just like a wood floor or tile floor. The planks (or tiles) come in various dimensions depending on the style. They are called luxury vinyl plank because the level of realism and detail in these floors is just . . . spectacular! If you have looked at vinyl floors 20 years ago (or even as recently as 5 years ago), you really need to see today's selection of luxury vinyl plank. The technology has caused a quantum leap in how good these floors are.

Two Types of Luxury Vinyl Plank

Click Vinyl Plank Floors

Click floors have become well known for a quick, solid installation that is also relatively easy to remove when it comes time to replace the floor. Some click vinyl floors incorporate the click mechanism within a solid vinyl substrate. However, the more popular option today are WPC and SPC floors which include a stiff 100% waterproof substrate underneath the vinyl layer. The benefits of these floors are excellent durability, stronger locking mechanism, and they are more forgiving of minor imperfections in the subfloor.

Glue Down Vinyl Plank Floors

Glue down vinyl planks tend to be cheaper. But the floor preparation must be perfect or every imperfection in the subfloor will telegraph through to the surface. They are a favorite for large commercial spaces because a damaged plank is easily replaced without unclicking the floor.

Ease of Installation.

Luxury vinyl planks are easier to lay and fit than rolled vinyl.

Easy to maintain.

Few floors are easier to maintain than luxyr vinyl plank. A quick once over with a damp mop is usually all that's required to spiff up the floor.

What does it cost?

Luxury vinyl planks generally cost from $5 to $12 per square foot installed. This is for a sub-floor that is prepared to accept a new vinyl floor. Removal of existing flooring and/or other floor preparation is additional. We provide free estimates!
