What is LVP?

 

Luxury Vinyl Plank is made to look like hardwood planks. You might have also heard of LVT, Luxury Vinyl Tile, which is made to look like stone. Both are water resistant and growing ever more popular as the years go on. LVP comes in a variety of colors and options, making it customizable to your needs.

 

Is LVP Waterproof?

 

Most LVP is waterproof; however, some LVP is simply water resistant. Either way, LVP flooring is a great choice for kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. Always be sure to clean up any spills to protect your flooring from potential damage over time.

Why Should I Install LVP?

 

Unlike traditional vinyl flooring, LVP is thicker so it can withstand more activity and wear. The bottom layer is made of a cushioning material for comfort, while the middle layer is constructed of high density core board. On top is the vinyl. They are easy to install and look like the real deal while costing less than hardwoods. If a sleek look on a budget is what you’re after, LVP could be the right choice for you.

 

How Long Does It Take to Install LVP?

 

While it depends on the size of the room, installation is quick and virtually mess-free. With snap-together LVP, there is no glue and no sanding, which means that once the flooring is measured and laid in place, it’s ready to go!

How Much Does LVP Cost?

 

This will also depend on the size of the room, as well as the finish and style you choose. But you can expect LVP to cost you roughly one-third of the cost of hardwood flooring installation. When you’re working with large areas, that’s a lot of savings! Of course, we’d be happy to help you determine the best fit for your needs if you’re not sure which flooring option is right for you.
