At AB Homes, providing quality homes is of the utmost importance to us. We’re here to help our homeowners make good decisions, as well as be a resource in the community. We’ve been providing custom homes in rural areas for over a decade. When it comes to flooring, we’ve seen and done it all – here is more information that will help you decide whether or not you should opt for LVP flooring in your home.
Vinyl flooring is extremely durable, and when well-maintained and taken care of, can last over twenty years. It is especially valuable to homeowners in areas that get a lot of traffic. It provides a nice, long-term alternative to the smashed-down carpet look. It’s also more resilient against stains and scratches. Always check out the specs on the flooring you are choosing. Individually, manufacturers offer flooring product lines at different price points based on various features.
Furthermore, vinyl flooring is comfortable to walk on for longer periods of time compared to several other non-carpet options. You can even opt for vinyl flooring that has a layer of padding. It’s also easier on the wallet. And because it’s easier to install, you’ll save comparatively there as well. Installed hardwood flooring can cost two to four times as much. If you prefer the look of natural wood, be sure to look around, as there are some vinyl flooring colors and types on the market that look more realistic than others.
While LVP is highly durable, it is not immune to damage from the sun. Be sure to choose an option that offers the added benefit of UV protection. It also cannot be refinished if fading or another type of damage occurs. Your only option will be to replace it.
Vinyl flooring is very popular at this time, so much so that it has become rather standard. For this reason, it doesn’t always add to the resale value of your home the way hardwood does. This is just something to keep in mind when you are selecting the flooring for your new home.
We hope that this information helps you decide whether or not LVP flooring in your home is the right type for you. Reach out to us to learn more about our homes, and for more information about the Pros & Cons of having LVP flooring in your custom new home.
