What is Vinyl Plank Flooring?
Vinyl Plank Flooring has completely shifted the scene of vinyl flooring. Gone are the early days of tacky vinyl flooring with chemical smells and dated style; modern vinyl plank flooring has moved eons beyond its forefathers in both aesthetic and functional design. Nowadays vinyl flooring comes in lightweight, flexible strips, tiles, or planks that are installed piece by piece like hardwood floors or ceramic tile. This is done by using beveled edges that click together and lock the flooring into place. The result is an incredibly durable, affordable, and aesthetically customizable floor that will serve your reliably for decades to come.
