What Is The Best Type of Luxury Vinyl Plank to Install?

When looking for the best luxury vinyl plank flooring, many options present themselves. But which one is the best to install?  How do I know I’m making the right choice? Well, your days of questioning are over!

From our years of experience in the flooring industry, Georgia Carpet can confidently give you the answer you need when it comes to quality in flooring.  We have seen various brands come and go, but one has remained steadfast in every category.  Shaw has the best quality LVP available for an affordable price.  Factors such as warranties and construction are highly ranked with Shaw.  Consumers reports have elevated Shaw's luxury vinyl plank to an almost deity level.  They offer two different lines with two different constructions.  The Floorte collection has a wood/plastic core (WPC), whereas the Floorte Plus collection has a stone/plastic core (SPC).  Is there a performance diffference between the two?  WPC is the traditional core of vinyl, it is softer but thicker than an SPC.  With SPC, it is best for high traffic areas but because of that, it is harder.  This aids in resisting dents and scrapes which makes it more suited for commercial use.  Both can be installed with the interlocking tongue & groove method or they can be glued down.  We recommend both types of products for any residential project, but leave the decision up to the consumer.

Based solely on the installation process, styles with the locking system are generally easier to install, leading to less expensive installation cost.  These floating floors can be installed without expensive glues or a professional.  This brings the overall cost of your flooring purchase down significantly.  Cost and quality are some of the top considerations when buying flooring.  One sure way to determine quality is by seeing what type of warranties are included.  Depending on the thickness of the vinyl plank, Shaw backs each collection up with some type of commercial warranty.  While most LVP is intended for residential use, they are confident in its durability so much so that it can also be used in a heavier trafficked area.  Another aspect of Shaw that makes it the best is the wide variety of styles and colors they offer.  From contemporary to traditional and everything in between, this brand has it all.  Oftentimes luxury vinyl planks can only be found in wood designs, but Shaw takes it a step further by including stone looks in their collections. With so many options, you are sure to find a style that fits your decor perfectly. The best LVP to install is definitely Shaw.  Overall, their brand is the best for any of your flooring needs.  No matter what area you plan to cover, Shaw has the finest choices for you.  Make sure to request a quote today!
