Luxury Vinyl Flooring
If you are in the process of remodeling or building a new house, you have likely run across countless websites selling “luxury vinyl flooring” or “luxury vinyl plank” [LVP] in your search for affordable and attractive floor designs. Look no further: Flooring Depot of Panama City touts the best selection of LVP in the area (see our reviews by clicking here). Therefore, we want to alleviate what you’ve heard about LVP: luxury vinyl plank is a type of flooring that is designed to look just like wood, but many claim it is inferior when compared to traditional hardwood. This is simply not true! Luxury vinyl flooring is less expensive than traditional hard wood, but it is not “cheap” or “gaudy.”
So, let’s go ahead and clear the air: the stigma surrounding vinyl plank flooring is a thing of the past. At one time in the 1970’s and 80’s, in the early days of vinyl flooring, the materials and design of vinyl flooring lacked many of the wonderful characteristics that we see in the luxury vinyl plank of today. Therefore, the Flooring Depot of Panama City, Florida has provided you with the following guide: “What are the Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring?”
LVP is Easy to Install
Luxury vinyl plank is easy to install. In fact, it is much easier to install than traditional hardwood. Traditional hardwood flooring requires cutting and precise modification to make it fit in awkward spaces. Therefore, unlike hardwood, it can be easily manipulated to fit nearly anywhere you want it to go. LVP is considered to be what’s known as “floating flooring,” which is flooring that fits together like puzzle pieces. Thus, LVP can be installed just about anywhere, and it can even be laid directly onto concrete. Furthermore, LVP can be glued onto nearly any existing subfloor without an underlayment. This can save you big money, especially if you a DIY’er. If you want your LVP installed by professionals, however, the Flooring Depot of Panama City has you covered. We are known through the area for our expert installation services. For more information about installation, please click here.
Why Choose Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Waterproof floors are the newest innovation of engineered products. They offer a perfect blend of the rich, natural beauty of hardwood and ceramic tile with the exceptional performance and comfort of luxury vinyl. Solid core planks are thick like solid wood boards but also 100% waterproof, a feature that places them in a league of their own. These beautiful, durable floors offer designs that faithfully replicate the high-end look of hardwood, ceramic tile, stone and concrete.
We serve all areas around Panama City with quality waterproof flooring, including Niceville, Marimar Beach, and Destin.
Types of Luxury Vinyl Floors
Waterproof solid core floors are an evolution in luxury vinyl flooring. With durability that exceeds other engineered products, these floors have the same multi-ply layer construction but feature a waterproof core that can survive splashes and spills without swelling or warping. In an advantage over laminate floors, the backing on solid core floors also muffles sounds, making
them quieter than other hard surface floors.
Waterproof solid core floors can be installed directly over most existing floors, including ceramic tile, vinyl, hardwood and laminate floors. Their rigid, dense construction won’t telegraph the bumps and hollows of an imperfect subfloor. Install solid cord planks with attached underlayment as a floating floor system.
