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.
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
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.
Why Choose Vinyl Plank?
With a plethora of colors, patterns, and styles, vinyl plank flooring offers unmatched versatility. Whether you’re seeking the rich, warm look of mahogany or the cool elegance of whitewashed oak, vinyl plank flooring offers something for every design aesthetic.
Durability & Ease of Maintenance
Thanks to its construction, vinyl plank flooring resists spills, scratches, and dents, making it a reliable choice for both high-traffic commercial spaces and active homes.
Furthermore, its easy-to-clean surface ensures that your flooring will look stunning with minimal upkeep.
To keep your vinyl planks looking new, use a broom, vacuum or microfiber sweeper for a quick clean up. For deeper cleans, a damp mop and mild cleaner get the job done.
Vinyl plank flooring provides a luxury look at an affordable price, making it a go-to for those who desire high-end style without breaking the bank.
Waterproof vinyl planks can be used anywhere, but they are especially ideal for rooms like kitchens, bathrooms, and basements, anywhere that moisture is prevalent.
From accidental spills, pet messes, and all the moisture your bathroom or laundry room can throw at it, vinyl plank flooring is up to the task!
Maintenance + Care
Product maintenance 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 are vinyl plank flooring experts and we’re 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.
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.
Only use cleaners approved by manufacturers – World Floorcoverings carriers/sells approved flooring cleaners. Other products can dull the finish and permanently damage the wood. This may result in loss of warranty.
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.

What is the difference between luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank?
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.
How long does vinyl plank 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.
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.
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.
