Budget-friendly luxury vinyl planks, or LVP, mimic more costly hardwood planks. A luxury vinyl plank flooring is appropriate for every room in the house. Planks showcase the rich grains, characteristic knots, and vibrant colors of popular wood species like maple and oak. It is hard to distinguish the planks from real wood. Various textures, like hand-scraped and wire-brushed, add to their authenticity. Floorz in Fort Myers, Florida, has the vinyl plank that is perfect for your flooring upgrade. Your project is easy to complete when you take advantage of our personalized service.
A child and pet-friendly flooring
The most rugged luxury vinyl plank brands are designed with children and pets in mind. Planks are waterproof and stain and scratch-resistant. High-quality brands are numerous. Mohawk's SolidTech Plus offers an All Pet Plus Protection warranty and no gap guarantee. Mannington’s Adura Max features ScratchResist and an innovative HydroLoc core. Nuvelle’s Density comes with a 50-year residential warranty. These waterproof brands can be submerged in water for an extended period without sustaining damage.
LVP is a man-made, multi-layer flooring with a backing, core, design, and wear layer. The backing layer provides plank stability. The core, usually a WPC (wood plastic composite) or SPC (stone plastic composite) core, repels water. The transparent wear layer protects the digital image of wood. Once this image is worn, the flooring must be replaced. Therefore, it is important to purchase a vinyl plank brand that has a thick wear layer. The best wear layers have at least a 20 mil thickness.
Vinyl plank flooring installation
Most often, LVP is installed as a floating floor. Edges are designed to fit together, so no attachment to the subfloor is needed. LVP can be placed over some existing floors and radiant heat systems. The Floorz installation team can handle jobs big and small. We serve the Fort Myers, Florida, area, including nearby Cape Coral, Bonita Springs, Lehigh, and Estero.
