1. The Benefits Of Vinyl Plank Flooring

    In our previous blog post, we explored what it is that sets Desert Hardwood Flooring apart from the competition. In short, we provide unparalleled customer service and the best hardwood flooring installation in Prescott. In our previous post, we briefly discussed the wide variety of flooring options that we offer, from pre-finished hardwood to laminate to cork and so much more. One of the flooring options we mentioned was luxury vinyl plank flooring. Vinyl plank flooring is quickly becoming one of the most popular options for flooring.

    In our blog post today, we want to take a look at vinyl plank flooring and why it’s so popular. First, we will look at what vinyl plank flooring is, and then we will go into some detail about what makes it special. So, first things first….

    What Is Vinyl Plank Flooring?

    No one doubts the beauty of hardwood. The deep colors and natural patterns possess a timeless allure. There’s a reason why hardwood is considered so beautiful and luxurious. The same holds for real stone floors. So, what does this have to do with vinyl plank? Well, vinyl plank flooring allows you to have the beauty and luxury of genuine hardwood flooring without several of the drawbacks, including cost (but more about that soon).

    Vinyl plank is sometimes referred to as LVT or LVP. It is, unsurprisingly, comprised of vinyl. It is made up of layers of vinyl on top of a rigid, waterproof core. The layers of virgin vinyl add to the flooring’s durability and ease of maintenance. The rigid core is composed of a dense, stone-polymer composite which expands and contracts very little, and which gives vinyl planking a strength and heftiness that mimics the feel of hardwood. 

    In addition to this, vinyl planking comes in a variety of stylish designs that can look virtually identical to genuine hardwood, stone, and many other types of flooring. The planks of vinyl, for instance, can mimic the look of cut hardwood, with a grain-like texture and feel to the surface. This is especially true when using a high quality vinyl plank product. Indeed, Desert Hardwood is committed to providing the best hardwood floors in Prescott, and this very much includes the quality of our vinyl plank. We only use the best.

    What Are The Benefits Of Vinyl Plank Flooring?

    If part of the appeal of vinyl planking is that it can faithfully imitate the look and feel of other types of flooring, then it’s only natural to ask why you shouldn’t just go with the original type of flooring! There are many reasons to go with vinyl plank flooring over other types of flooring. This includes the following:

    • Low cost
    • Durability for pets, kids & high traffic
    • Waterproof, stain-proof
    • Easy to clean and maintain

    And that’s just the beginning! One of the biggest appeals of vinyl planking is the fact that it’s waterproof. In addition, layers of aluminium-oxide eurethane form the final top coating over the vinyl layer, adding scratch resistance and durability . These layers also add extra protection against scuffing and spills. 

    What does all of this add up to? It means that you can have the luxury of hardwood in any room of your home. This includes trouble areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Traditionally, these are not great areas for hardwood due to the high foot traffic, high levels of moisture/humidity, and increased risk of spills. Hardwood is susceptible to each of these things — but not so with our luxury vinyl plank floors.
