Advantages of Vinyl Plank Flooring
Unlike hardwood, vinyl plank flooring features a layered construction. The top layer is called the wear layer, and it resist scratches, scuffs, and moisture. Underneath the wear layer is the design layer, which includes a high-definition wood visual. Most vinyl planks also have strong support layers, called core and base layers, that provide exceptional dimensional stability. Some even have waterproof cores, so they are considered 100% waterproof.
Given this construction, vinyl plank flooring is much more durable and wear resistant than hardwood. It can handle high traffic and moisture, and it also remains easy to clean and maintain. At the same time, because of advancements in digital printing, vinyl planks look almost exactly like real wood planks.
Where Can Vinyl Plank Be Installed?
For the most part, vinyl plank flooring can be installed anywhere in the home. It can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and other areas where hardwood isn't the best option. Also, vinyl plank is comfortable enough underfoot for bedrooms and family rooms.
