Vinyl Plank Flooring Pros and Cons

What are the advantages of vinyl planks?
  • Stunning visuals:At the high end of luxury vinyl planks, wood-look and stone-look textures are incredibly realistic. You’ll have a hard time knowing if it’s artificial or not.
  • Easy installation: DIY types will love how simple it is to install LVP floors. Simply peel and stick or click-lock your way to your dream flooring!
  • Low maintenance: Say goodbye to the hassles of treating and sealing real wood or stone floors. With luxury vinyl flooring, you can lay it and leave it without worrying about upkeep.
  • Super simple cleaning: If you have a damp mop and a dust mop, then you’ve got everything you need to keep your vinyl planks looking brand new and beautiful.
What are the drawbacks of vinyl planks?
  • You get what you pay for: WPC and SPC vinyl planks have a higher price tag than some other flooring options, but that comes with some big benefits. If you cut costs and purchase a cheaper plank option, it likely won’t be waterproof or quite as durable.
  • Not the real material: If the authenticity of your floor is important to you, then choosing wood-look or stone-look won’t be enough, no matter how realistic it appears.

Types of Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring

Not all luxury vinyl planks are the same. You can choose from standard luxury vinyl, WPC luxury vinyl, and even Rigid Core vinyl flooring. Let’s break down the options so you can make the best decision for your needs.

Luxury Vinyl Planks (LVP)
This is the acronym for luxury vinyl plank flooring. Luxury vinyl plank is an umbrella term that often encompasses WPC and SPC. LVP can also refer to vinyl that is not waterproof or rigid core, but that has a higher-quality visual, and usually a basic glue down or a lock installation mechanism.

WPC Vinyl Planks
WPC stands for wood-plastic composite vinyl flooring. However, many people also use the acronym to stand for waterproof core vinyl flooring. Both meanings are correct. WPC vinyl flooring is 100% waterproof, and its core is made from a composite of plastic and wood. In the flooring industry, it’s referred to as engineered vinyl flooring. WPC is recommended for residential use since it is softer underfoot.

SPC Vinyl Planks
SPC stands for stone-plastic composite or stone-polymer composite. Both of these terms are used interchangeably. SPC is also sometimes referred to as Rigid Core luxury vinyl flooring. That’s because the stone-plastic composite core in this luxury vinyl is ultra-dense. Like WPC, SPC is 100% waterproof and is also called engineered vinyl flooring within the industry. SPC is great for both residential and commercial use.

How to Install Vinyl Plank Flooring

When it comes to installation, there are a few different types of vinyl plank, and it’s important to know the difference as you make your flooring decision.

Depending on how you plan to use your floor, and how easily you want to install it, you’ll find that one type of vinyl planks suits your needs better than the others.

Interlocking/Floating
Also known as tongue-and-groove installation, the interlocking design is one of the more common installation types these days. It’s popular with DIYers because it’s so simple. This installation type involves an installation tool kit with an interlocking system that keeps the whole floor together. Easy breezy!

Glue-Down
Glue down vinyl permanently, and it's not moving anywhere. The glue-down method is the perfect solution for holding up strong against high foot traffic, in areas like retail shops, offices, and even grocery stores.

Loose Lay
Loose-lay vinyl products are exactly that – you lay them loose on the floor. They are not glued or interlocked as a whole floating system, which is an added benefit because if one plank gets damaged you can simply pop it out and put a new one in its place. To keep the floor in place, use double-sided carpet tape around the perimeter of the floor.

Peel and Stick Vinyl Planks
Peel and stick vinyl flooring is the perfect DIY-friendly solution. They offer a modern flooring option in a range of realistic or decorative looks. While some peel and stick vinyl planks are thinner and less durable, you can also find more sturdy options. To make sure you find the right flooring for your space, check to ensure the peel and stick vinyl planks you choose are durable enough for your application.

Vinyl vs. Laminate Flooring: Learn the Difference

  • Use: Vinyl can thrive in all levels and rooms of the home, including bathrooms, kitchens, and basements.
  • DIY friendliness: Both laminate and vinyl are simple and easy to install.
  • Moisture resistance: Waterproof vinyl is 100% waterproof from bottom to top. Meanwhile, laminate only offers a basic water resistance from top to bottom, and it can get damaged if liquid gets in through the interlock/seam.

Vinyl vs. Linoleum Flooring: Which is Better?

Some people think linoleum and vinyl are the same, and that can lead to confusion while shopping. Modern vinyl floors look far different from the old-school linoleum they once resembled. More importantly, these two floors are constructed differently, so they offer different levels of performance.

  • Use: Linoleum doesn’t do well in moisture-prone areas, but many vinyl planks are 100% waterproof, making it a great floor for any room of the house.
  • Maintenance: Vinyl flooring is low maintenance, requiring a basic sweep and mop to stay beautiful.
  • Appearance: Vinyl comes with more style and color options, and it also offers more convincing wood-look and stone-look textures.
