Redoing your flooring certainly offers a range of options, from hardwood to tile to vinyl to carpet. Of course, renovating on a budget means weighing the pros and cons of each flooring type and finding the one that sits at the intersection of affordability, durability and aesthetics. Vinyl flooring often meets those three requirements, which is why it’s such a popular choice for homeowners. Though, as with any material you use in your home, vinyl comes with its own set of benefits and frustrations. As you check out different types of vinyl, take a look at this information about plank flooring:
Vinyl plank is designed to resemble hardwood, and it comes in strips. You can find this product in a number of styles, each mimicking a specific type of wood, from oak to hickory and beyond. Because vinyl plank imitates hardwood, you’re sure to find a version that matches the rest of your home’s decor. Additionally, vinyl is the budget-friendly choice for renovators who want the look of hardwood without the challenging installation and cost.

Here’s BuildDirect’s exclusive guide to wear layers applied across our vinyl products.
You can use these in any residential setting, and in commercial settings, too. With Advanced protection, your vinyl floor has a strong wear-layer for more protection against denting, scuffs, scratches and staining from everyday household activities.
Typically 0.3mm to 0.5mm thickness, starting at 15 year residential warranty.
Products with this protection rating are ideal for residential installations, and light commercial ones, too. Like the Advanced protection, this rating for protection has a mid-range wear layer compatible with pet traffic, kids, and spills.
Typically less than 0.3mm, starting at 10 year residential warranty.
This protection rating is best suited for lower-traffic areas in a residence; bedrooms, guest rooms, dining rooms, and anywhere feet aren’t constantly on the move, and where sources of stress aren’t as common. Yet, these are still reliable choices for these areas.
