What Is Vinyl Plank Flooring?

Vinyl plank flooring is a 100% waterproof floor covering which is suitable for both commercial and residential settings. It’s waterproof capabilities can be attributed towards the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) composition as opposed to wood. Vinyl flooring comes in two forms:

  1. Luxury Vinyl Planks – Also known as LVP, these vinyl planks are similar to traditional flooring except for the fact that they are slightly soft and often malleable. Luxury vinyl planks are designed for residential use.
  2. Vinyl Sheet Flooring – Fully sealable and manufactured for commercial standards, vinyl sheets can be laid in hospital floor coverings, labs and other industrial areas.

Benefits Of Vinyl Plank Flooring

Vinyl plank flooring offers a plethora of benefits including:

  • 100% Waterproof – The biggest selling point of vinyl flooring is the fact that they are completely impervious to water or moisture.
  • Low Maintenance – Vinyl flooring is often imbued with stain resistance which makes them very easy to clean. On top of this, you won’t have to worry about excess moisture when mopping!
  • Anti-Slip & Safe – Many vinyl floor ranges offer slip resistance, especially since they are commonly designed for commercial applications which come with stringent safety standards.
  • Affordable – Vinyl planks are on the more affordable side of the flooring options. Typical costs in Sydney NSW range from $30 – $50 per square metre for material. Feel free to contact us for a quick quote!

Vinyl planks are perfect for waterproofing and are especially suitable for commercial applications including restaurants, cafeterias and shop fronts. Furthermore, they are very easy to clean and maintain. The biggest drawback is that they may feel less like timber underfoot since it’s made of a softer plastic material.

When it comes to choosing between vinyl flooring and laminate flooring, it really comes down to your circumstances. If you are looking for waterproofing, vinyl flooring will win since laminate floors are made of wood. If you are looking for durability, laminate flooring is more scratch and dent resistant.

Vinyl plank flooring comes with many advantages. Here are some benefits of engineered timber flooring:

  • Waterproof – Vinyl planks are 100% waterproof which means that you won’t ever have to worry about excess moisture or spills. 
  • Clean & Maintenance – Vinyl flooring is designed to be very easy to clean with anti-stain properties. Furthermore, they are simple to clean since they are waterproof.
  • Safety – Vinyl planks often provide anti-slip properties and are softer than hard flooring alternatives. This makes them much safer and suitable for commercial areas.

Whilst we all love hearing the benefits, there are drawbacks to be aware of:

  • Artificial – As vinyl floors are made of PVC plastic, they can look and feel fake compared to other flooring types. Lower quality vinyl ranges may even suffer from pattern repetition.
  • Surface Abrasions – Another drawback of the softer plastic material is that they scratch easier from sharp objects and heavy furniture dragging without felt padding on the legs.
  • VOC Emissions – Lower quality vinyl flooring may emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are a form of respiratory irritant. Whilst they don’t pose any real health risk, they can be irritating for asthmatic or sensitive people.

Whilst most decent quality vinyl planks look like real timber and even have textures embossed into the surface, there are some which can look cheap. The cheap and fake looking vinyl floors are found in lower quality ranges and can definitely detract from your designs.
