Vinyl Flooring Santa Clarita CA - LVP: Wooden Floors, But Better
There is truly nothing like the homey vibe wooden floors can provide. Unfortunately, from installing to maintaining them, hardwood floors cost a fortune. However, Vinyl Flooring Santa Clarita has a BETTER solution: luxury vinyl planks.
What is a Luxury Vinyl Plank?
Luxury Vinyl Plank, or LVP, is flooring designed to look and feel like natural wood. This, in our opinion, is a better alternative for hardwood floors. Aside from adding a luxurious feel to a home at a more affordable price, the luxury vinyl planks we offer at Vinyl Flooring Santa Clarita provide several benefits.
The Value of Vinyl Plank Floors Santa Clarita
Water-Resisting or Water-Proofing Property
Unlike hardwood floors and many other flooring materials, various LVP products are designed to be water-resistant or waterproof. They also do not require yearly or any sealing at all! This makes them virtually an excellent choice of flooring for any part of the home: kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, or bathrooms.
Stability in Temperature Fluctuations
Luxury vinyl planks expand and contract in shifts of temperatures instead of shrinking, breaking, or drying out. Natural wood, when exposed to moisture, becomes waterlogged. This leads to its rotting and the growth of molds and mildew. When exposed to humidity, wood shrinks, dries out, and eventually breaks. This is why experts do not recommend hardwood floors in bathrooms and basements.
Designed to look like natural wood, luxury vinyl planks come in various patterns and finishes of many wood species. Homeowners can choose from the most common to rarest and exotic species in different finishes or colors. Many luxury vinyl planks even feel like natural wood, that it is hard to distinguish them!
Given that a 12x15 subfloor is in prime condition, professionals can complete a typical installation in five hours. This can take longer when the planks have to be measured and cut to fit protrusions or when the subfloor has to be leveled and cleaned. But because LVPs can either be glued-down or installed via their built-in click-and-lock system, many DIY aficionados resort to doing the installation themselves.
Due to its composition, luxury vinyl planks provide more comfort than standard vinyl flooring. They provide foot-cushioning resilience while still being sturdy and durable. Some products are also thicker than others because of the attached underlayment.
Its dense core, one of its layers, walking on them will not produce any loud, distracting sounds. When luxury vinyl planks are laid on top of a subfloor with acoustic underlayment, vinyl planks can reduce sounds and noise. This is why luxury vinyl planks are an excellent flooring choice for studios, home offices, and bedrooms.
Maintenance and Cleaning
Luxury vinyl planks do not require some particular cleaning solution, equipment, or technique. Dirt and grit can be easily removed by simply wiping, sweeping, or vacuuming them. They can also be wet-mopped or scrubbed.
Though priced at higher rates than standard vinyl flooring, luxury vinyl planks are still cheaper than hardwood and other wooden floors. Because LVP virtually requires little to no maintenance, it is also a more cost-effective flooring solution.
