Luxury Vinyl Plank’s (or LVP) specific surface looks like real wood plank flooring, but is as easy to maintain and as durable as any other vinyl flooring. The visuals are so realistic, most people can’t tell it apart from actual hardwood. In fact, most people have walked across LVP many times without realizing it. LVP installs over any smooth and flat surface such as concrete, wood or even existing vinyl (some prep may be required). Within this product there are several installation alternatives. Some items are meant to be glued down, others click together similarly to a floating laminate floor, and others can be “loose laid” with no adhesive required. Luxury Vinyl Plank is a great alterative to wood in areas where durability is a high priority and also in areas where moisture is a concern.
