How Does Vinyl Planking Really Hold Up After a Few Years?

Many of Studio’s customers have opted for Luxury Vinyl Planking as their flooring option.  After all, what’s not to like?  LVP is cost effective, easy to install and it claims to be more durable.  Since it became mainstream as an option for businesses and residential a number of years ago, I wanted to share with you how the product looks and feels after a couple of years use.  As we know, Winnipeg and Manitoba, have extreme climate conditions, even indoors.   Winter brings very dry conditions, while summer’s humidity levels tend to elevate.   This will of course, effect your flooring.  That, and the normal wear and tear of everyday use puts a higher strain on flooring.  If you introduce pets into the equation the wear is even more pronounced.

Here is what a customer said about their Luxury Vinyl Planking that was installed 3 years ago.

“The flooring definitely has some dings and nicks from the dogs, but they’re far less noticeable than I would imagine they would be on real wood flooring. You can only see the tiny scratches when the light hits the floor just right, and even then they aren’t bad enough to bother me.”

Even if the floor somehow gets damaged, it’s a snap to replace one plank. All you have to do is pull up the plank and lay a new one.  Generally when you pop a new board into place, you can’t tell the difference from the old to the new.   This is a lot more challenging with an actual hardwood floor.

The experts at Studio can assist you with all the flooring options that are available.  Luxury Vinyl Planking now comes in so many substrates and patterns that it is really becoming the main go-to; even for discerning designers.  Whether your project is commercial or residential, Studio can present the best floors for your project.
