Affordable, Attractive Vinyl Floors in El Paso, TX and Las Cruces, NM
Since the latter part of 2016, Luxury Vinyl Plank, or LVP, has become the fastest-growing segment of the flooring industry. If you’re picturing vinyl flooring that looks like your grandmother’s sheet linoleum in the kitchen with the flower patterns on it, you’re partly correct! Modern vinyl floors are not that retro thanks to modern advancements in the composition and manufacturing process. But as advertised, the vinyl plank of today can withstand residential, commercial, and even industrial traffic.
The vinyl “renaissance “of the 21st century comes with a dizzying array of colors and even wood look-alike designs and textures. Today’s LVP also has reinforced surface protection that can handle stains, burns, and scuffs like a champion. It may still be vinyl but it’s a definite upgrade from your parents’ and grandparents’ generation of flooring.
Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)
As a wood floor expert fascinated with real hardwood floors, Beto Bañuelos of Wood Floors by Beto has expressed a conflicted view on the seemingly perfect luxury vinyl plank floors. The majority of folks interested in purchasing a floor would probably prefer real hardwood compared to any vinyl floor because of its naturally luminous beauty and heirloom qualities.
That said, even Beto admits that the vinyl products of today are definitely worth considering for their sheer practicality and a vast range of colors and styles. Similar in construction to laminate floors, the vinyl tile is also layered. But unlike laminate, the LVP is inherently water-resistant so wet mopping is not an issue. You can find a wood pattern to suit aesthetic needs in every major brand of LVP, including Mohawk, Shaw, and MetroFlor.
Vinyl plank flooring hits on several of the qualifying reasons to buy a floor. The durability is proven with the millions of square feet already installed in commercial stores, apartments, and hospitals throughout the world. Manufacturers have invested millions of dollars in designing planks that look and feel like wood floors. Additionally, LVP is inexpensive to produce, so the installed price ranges from just $3 to $5.50 per square foot and is available in 6-inch wide planks to keep up with modern trends. Vinyl plank is easily installed by a direct glue-down method or floating method, but we highly recommend allowing our team to install it for the longest-lasting results.
