Luxury vinyl flooring is an excellent choice for any room in your home, but we understand there are many questions regarding this material for most homeowners. To alleviate some of your most common concerns, here are some questions, along with their answers, for your consideration.


Can you install vinyl plank over hardwood?

You can install vinyl plank flooring over any hardwood that is smooth, level, and has plenty of structural integrity for the installation. Since wood is often the component in many subfloors, hardwood flooring can be treated in much the same way as long as it is in good condition when the installation begins.

Is there scratch-proof vinyl plank flooring?

One of the best things about vinyl plank flooring is its extensive durability. Not only is it highly resistant to scratches, but you also see fewer stains and fading, thanks to an excellent wear layer you can customize with different thicknesses. That means, if you want or need better scratch resistance, especially if you have pets or children in the home, choose a thicker wear layer.

Is vinyl plank flooring waterproof?

With a core component made of wood plastic composite (WPC), stone plastic composite (SPC), or 100% vinyl, your vinyl plank flooring will be completely impervious to water. This makes it an excellent choice for wood-look flooring in basements, laundry rooms, kitchens, or throughout your entire home.
