Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring
As we mentioned before there are several advantages that come along with installing luxury vinyl plank flooring in your home. These floors are made from multiple layers that all play a role in how the floor functions. The wear layer of luxury vinyl is a clear plastic film that protects the high-definition image layer, where luxury vinyl gets its looks. The planks can resist scuffs and scratches from foot traffic due to its durable wear layer. Luxury vinyl planks are resistant to moisture, so unlike hardwood they will not react as much to spills and humidity. Many types of luxury vinyl planks have a cork or rubberized backing, which means they can absorb noise and be installed over most subfloors.
Vinyl plank flooring is the ideal option for homes where pets are able to roam around on their own. The durable wear layer not only resists foot traffic but can also resistant scratching from pet claws. Pet accidents are no longer an issue either; most luxury vinyl features a moisture resistant surface that can be easily cleaned.
