Luxury vinyl plank is an authentic-looking alternative to hardwood flooring. It's a practical flooring option appropriate for any room in the home, including those with heavy foot traffic. Waterproof and abrasion-resistant LVP stands up to everyday wear and tear. The easy-to-clean surface guarantees that no more than a damp cloth or mop is needed to wipe away spills. Unique Flooring in Oceanside,California, offers a large assortment of attractive and functional flooring. We carry planks in many wood species, textures, sizes, and colors.

Vinyl plank wear layer

Vinyl plank flooring is composed of four layers: backing, core, image, and wear. The transparent wear layer protects the high-tech image of hardwood. On the best brands,it's tough to scratch, stain, or dent this layer. Once the wear layer is worn down, the floor must be replaced. Since this protective layer determines the durability of the plank, thicker is better. A 20+ mil thickness is ideal for the most active areas of the home.

Top floor coating

Many brands have a coating on top of the wear layer that provides additional protection against scratching and other damage. A ceramic bead coating, made with polyurethane and microscopic beads of ceramic, is typical. Silica beads and aluminum oxide are alternative additives. Expect LVP that has a thick wear layer and high-quality top coating to have the most extended warranty. Life expectancy for the best products is 20 years or longer.
