American Flooring Offers Vinyl Plank Flooring as an Alternative to Hardwood

Vinyl plank flooring gives the appearance of hardwood without the high cost. A vinyl plank provides more durability than traditional planks of wood. The beauty of vinyl flooring goes beyond its visual appeal and durability.

A vinyl plank floor has longevity. There is a bonus of being able to install vinyl plank flooring in almost every room of a home, including areas that are humidity-prone such as bathrooms, basements, and kitchens.

Vinyl plan floors meet all the standards of indoor air quality. The vinyl plank can be installed everywhere from small houses to commercial buildings. It is a great low-maintenance alternative to real wood.

Vinyl plank installation

A vinyl plank floor is easier to install than solid or engineered hardwood floors. Upscale features in today's home listings include vinyl plank flooring, along with other features considered to be luxuries such as unit washer and dryers, freestanding tubs, stainless steel appliances, tile backsplashes, and granite countertops.

Vinyl plank flooring features the look of distressed, exotic, or traditional wood. The colors range from tones of gold and red to classic browns. A pressure sensitive adhesive makes vinyl plank flooring easy to install.

The planks attach together, not on a subfloor. Do-it-yourselfers are fond of vinyl plank floors. The vinyl planks press into place and form a secure, tight bond over nearly all subfloors. No special tools, drying time, or glue is needed. Vinyl plank flooring is ideal in homes with uneven subfloors. The strong, thick locking planks hide minor subfloor irregularities.

What determines the quality of vinyl plank flooring?

Two factors determine vinyl plank flooring quality: The thickness of the wear layer and the plank thickness. Thickness is equated with density. A thicker floor feels sturdier and more substantial underfoot. It also provides more durability and resiliency, making a vinyl plank floor more comfortable while standing for extended periods.
