The end of Winter means the start of the busiest time of year for those of us in the remodeling business, the Spring/Summer remodeling season. This is the time of year when homeowners start to put their plans into action, and really start to get down to the business of sprucing up their homes. This year, we noticed that a lot of our clients are curious about vinyl plank flooring.
We've gotten so many questions about vinyl plank flooring, that we had our flooring experts throw together a quick rundown of just what makes this flooring material so great. Here's what they came up with:
Water resistance
One of the major drawbacks of many flooring materials is their inability to withstand water, wood warps, carpet stains and molds, etc. This makes those materials completely unsuitable for certain applications, such as kitchen and bathroom installations.
Vinyl plank flooring, on the other hand, is completely waterproof and apt for use in kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, or even basements! If you are looking to have the look of a less-hardy flooring material in a place where water is an issue, the choice is clear!
Another major drawback to certain flooring materials is their need for specific sub-flooring to be viable. Again, vinyl plank steals the show, by being completely adaptable to just about any sub-flooring out there. Concrete, plywood, OSB, it doesn't matter. Vinyl plank is still a go!
Commercial-grade durability
One of the most attractive features of vinyl planks is the incredibly sturdy protective coatings that make up the surface of the flooring. These wear layers are tested to be able to withstand heavy commercial foot traffic without fading or scratching. If these floors can handle thousands of footfalls per day and still look great in a commercial setting, imagine how long they could last in your private home!
