LVP (Luxury Vinyl Plank) or Laminate Flooring: Which is better?
LVP is an exceptional choice for homeowners who are seeking a waterproof flooring option that can withstand even the most challenging conditions. With its hard-wearing and resilient construction, LVP is specially engineered to remain dry and protected when water is spilled on its surface, when washing machines leak or if your house experiences a flood.
When you choose LVP, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing your floors will remain in top condition even if they are subjected to consistent exposure to water. Moreover, if water somehow penetrates the surface and makes its way to the subfloor, you can easily remove the planks, allow the subfloor to dry, and then re-install the planks – good as new.
Laminate and LVP are two popular types of flooring, each with its own set of unique features. If you’re looking for scratch resistance in your flooring, laminate is the way to go. This is because of the way it’s manufactured – through a heating and pressing process that creates a harder wear layer. This wear layer is more resistant to scratches and other types of damage, making it a great choice for high-traffic areas or homes with pets. While LVP also has wear layer technology to protect against scratches, it’s not as durable as laminate. Choosing laminate over LVP ensures that you’ll have a long-lasting, beautiful floor that will stand up to the rigors of daily life. Whether you’re renovating your home or simply replacing a worn-out floor, laminate is the clear winner if scratch resistance is a top priority.
When you’re in the process of selecting the ideal flooring for your project, there are numerous factors to consider, and one of the most crucial considerations is the thickness of your chosen flooring. Why is thickness so important? Well, it can impact several aspects of your project, from the way the flooring looks and feels underfoot to how it wears over time and how well it withstands everyday use. With both luxury vinyl plank (LVP) and laminate flooring, there are a variety of thicknesses available, so it’s vital to determine the right height for your space. Additionally, it’s worth noting that we can provide convenient transition strips that make it easy to move from one type of floor covering to another. Whether you’re renovating your home office, updating a commercial space, or tackling a DIY project, we’re here to help you choose the best flooring for your needs.
How do they feel?
Generally speaking, laminates tend to feel cooler to the touch than luxury vinyl planks (LVP). However, it’s worth noting that there are exceptions to this rule. In fact, some laminates and LVPs are designed to be installed over hydronic floor heating systems, which can help to regulate the temperature and provide a more comfortable underfoot experience. Ultimately, the decision between laminate and LVP will depend on your personal preferences and the specific needs of your space.
When we decided to finally get our floors redone to fix the horrible job the house flipper before us did, I knew I wanted to hire a craftsman and not just a general contractor. Josh and the folks at PTL knocked it out of the park. My family and I are so excited to live in this home, on these floors, for generations to come.
