Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a list of questions that is frequently asked by customers and the answers. This list intends to help people quickly find related information about your products as well as understand more about your service.

What is the difference between luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank?

LVP and LVT are both great flooring products that often get used interchangeably. The key differences are the shape & the look. LVP is sold in plank shape and closely resembles the look of real hardwood. While LVT come in tile squares and resemble ceramic or natural stones. Both options will give those great benefits mentioned earlier like being waterproof, extremely durable, and easy to install.

Is vinyl floor better than laminate?

While both flooring types are great lower-cost options that replicate the look & style of natural materials, in most cases Luxury Vinyl will be the better option. One of the main differences is that Luxury Vinyl is waterproof & can be installed in every room of a house or building, including high-moisture areas like bathrooms. Laminate is not waterproof & should only be installed in climate-controlled rooms. Finally, there is not much of a difference in the costs between vinyl & laminate, which makes Vinyl the clear choice in most situations.

How long does vinyl flooring last?

Around 20 years. If the material is installed correctly & well-maintained, then you should have no trouble getting ~20 years or more out of the flooring. This will also depend on the thickness of the wear layer. Naturally, the thicker vinyl option you go with, the longer it will last, while choosing a plank with a thinner wear layer will not last as long. Furthermore, thicker planks will generally come with up to 25 years of warranty from the manufacturer.

Will heavy furniture damage vinyl planks?

Vinyl planks are built with durability in mind, so in most cases, heavy furniture will not damage your vinyl planks. A rule of thumb is that a single vinyl plank can withstand 500lbs of weight. However, it’s important to remember that most of your heavy furniture or appliances (like a fridge) will have their weight dispersed evenly across multiple planks, not just one. The type of vinyl plank is a factor as well. SPC planks are harder & far more durable than their WPC counterparts, SPC can withstand ~2000PSI compared to ~400PSI WPC offers. This means that heavy furniture that doesn’t dispute weight across multiple planks (like a piano) may cause a WPC vinyl plank to dimple over time, whereas an SPC vinyl plank is better suited to handle the weight.
