Advantages of Vinyl Plank Flooring
Vinyl plank flooring is a more durable, yet equally-stylish, alternative to hardwood flooring. How does it combine performance and style? Vinyl plank has a special layered construction. The top layer resists scratches and scuffs, and it protects the design layer. The design layer is what gives vinyl plank its authentic wood look. Underneath those layers are support layers, including core and base layers, that provide extra strength and stability to the vinyl planks.
With this layered construction, vinyl plank flooring is ready for whatever life has to offer. It can handle scratches, scuffs, spills, and stains, so it is much more durable and reliable to real hardwood. But, because of the design layer, you don't have to sacrifice style when you choose vinyl plank.
Waterproof Vinyl Plank Flooring
All vinyl plank floors are considered water resistant, but there are some high-end options that have waterproof cores. With these cores, the vinyl planks are 100% waterproof. This means that even when exposed to significant moisture, the planks will not expand or buckle in any way. Waterproof vinyl plank flooring is great for kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where hardwood is not suitable.
