What Is Vinyl Plank Flooring?
If you’re looking for a quality flooring material for your next build or remodel that’s durable, easy to maintain, and affordable, you can’t go wrong with vinyl plank flooring.
Vinyl plank flooring is a synthetic product made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The finished product is 4-layers, with various compounds added that change the characteristics of the material from color, durability, wear & tear, and whether it can be waterproof.
Underlayment - Is made of foam or cork & serves many purposes from additional insulation, acting as a moisture barrier, and evening out any irregularities in your subfloor.
Core Layer - The core layer provides the structure of the vinyl planks & can be more rigid or flexible depending on the material. The two options for the core layer are either Stone Plastic Composite (SPC) or Wood Plastic Composite (WPC). SPC is a compound of Calcium Carbonate, PVC, & plasticizers. While WPC is a compound of PVC & wood mixture. Of the two, SPC is harder and more durable; it can resist approximately ~2000PSI, whereas WPC can resist around ~400PSI
Pattern or Print Layer - This layer gives Vinyl Planks their appearance that can resemble different looks of Wood, Stone, or Tile. It is a thin film with a high-resolution photo printed onto it.
Wear Layer - The wear layer is made of a clear, urethane coating. This final layer is what makes Vinyl Plank Flooring scratch & water resistant. The wear layer is sold in various levels of thickness - 12mil or thicker is a great option for residential spaces, while higher traffic or commercial spaces should go for a 20mil or thicker option.
If you are in Edmonton and looking for your next flooring material, Vinyl Plank Flooring is a great choice. From the ease of installation, affordability, maintenance, durability & more, it will last you years & look amazing too!
Maintenance + Care tips
Product maintanence and care will vary from product to product - product specific care is provided upon selection and may even play a role in determining your final selection of flooring. Our experienced sales team is here to coach you through selecting the product that is right for your home.
Use mats at entrances to keep grit + moisture from being tracked in.
If your floors need a little more TLC than your daily routine, once you finish sweeping and vacuuming up dust, you can get out your trusty tile mop and bucket to finish the job.
Only use cleaners approved by manufacturers - World Floor Coverings carriers/sells approved flooring cleaners. Other products can dull the finish and permanently damage the wood. This may result in loss of warranty.
The best way to prevent scratches or scuffs is to begin with removing the dirt and debris daily that could cause damage. If you end up with a scratch or scuff some light buffing might do the trick.
