Why LVP flooring may be right for you

LVP flooring is short for luxury vinyl plank, a version of luxury vinyl flooring. It’s the perfect option when you want but can't have wood floors. One reason could be that you're interested in a more budget-friendly price point. Another reason could be wanting wood in a wet space that insists on something waterproof.

At Absolute Flooring Inc, we know that beautiful floors take more than just great products. LVP flooring is a floating floor installation. That in itself is uncomplicated and fast, but the seams still need to be lined up properly and the subfloor properly prepared. Our installers are all certified and our installations are guaranteed, so feel free to talk to them at our Gallatin facility.

What is luxury vinyl plank flooring

All LVF is an incredibly realistic mimic of wood, tile (available with LVT), or stone. It comes in a wide assortment of colors, species, patterns, and designs.

When your flooring is a vinyl plank, it means that it is cut to resemble hardwood boards. Images are taken with modern, technologically advanced digital printing. They are so clear you will see the knots, grains, and wormholes. Then it is cut into strips and mounted on boards.

Technology has also given us embossing for added depth and dimension. You can get textured appearances like wire-brushed, which is so popular right now. Other textures include hand-scraped, weathered, or distressed. You can choose from a matte, gloss, or high-gloss finish.
Some people also use vinyl plank for a stone look. They say the larger format and fewer seams give it a more continuous look, like that of a marble slab. When this is the case, the photography will clearly show the veining and color variations.

Other benefits of vinyl plank include:

  • Durability. All vinyl is strong, but the luxury version is thicker. There’s also a tough clear melamine sheet at the top to protect from scuffs and scratches. It is completely impervious to liquid.
  • Easy to clean. Spills sit at the top and wipe off easily. All it takes is a daily sweeping and periodic mopping. Just be sure the cleaner is manufacturer-approved.
  • Simple installation. This is an installer’s dream! The pieces click together, forming a mat which then hovers over an existing subfloor. No staples or adhesives are needed
