Luxury vinyl plank flooring comes in strips or planks that typically are 36 or 48 inches long. Widths vary but many boards are around six inches wide. LVP floors are resistant to stains, mold, and bacteria. The best planks have a thick wear layer protected by a clear protective coating. Floors are easy to clean, and regular maintenance is not required.

Flooring Facts

LVP gives you the look of real wood flooring without the cost. These durable planks can either be glued to the subfloor or fitted together to float over it so no attachment is required. The benefits of installing this type of flooring are many.

  • Lengthy lifespan - lasts up to 25 years
  • Variety of textures - i.e., hand-scraped, knotted, wire-brushed
  • Aesthetically pleasing - deep embossing produces a real wood look
  • Absorbs shocks - won’t crack or chip when a hard object is dropped on it
  • Water-resistant - can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms
  • Comfortable - warm underfoot and easy to stand on; add underlayment for extra comfort


In addition to all the other benefits, some LVP is waterproof. Even if it is soaked in water for an extended time, it won't swell, buckle, or warp. If you are interested in this type of flooring, look for brands that have a wood plastic composite (WPC) core or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. Best brands include Karndean Korlok, Armstrong Pryzm, COREtec Plus, Mannington Adura Max, Shaw Floorte Largo, and Mohawk SolidTech.
