Many customers have come to us with a very valid set of questions: Is vinyl plank flooring any good? What are the benefits to me if I get this installed? And we've even heard the question: "Well if it's made of plastic, it can't be that good, right?"

These are the right questions to be asking! As a consumer and homeowner, you are looking for a product that is going to last against your daily use, but also add a nice touch to your home that will leave people shocked when they find out it isn't hardwood... the process for making vinyl plank has become so good nowadays, that it's sometimes hard to tell the difference between it and real hardwood!

Vinyl plank flooring has been gaining popularity as a durable, affordable, and versatile flooring option for homeowners. Made of synthetic materials that mimic the look and feel of hardwood, vinyl plank flooring offers a range of benefits that make it a top choice for many households. Here are just a few of the advantages of vinyl plank flooring:

  1. Easy installation: One of the biggest advantages of vinyl plank flooring is how easy it is to install. Unlike traditional hardwood flooring, which requires specialized tools and expertise, vinyl plank flooring can often be installed by homeowners themselves. Our MBA line of products features the Swedish invented VALINGE 2G and 5G locking systems, often referred to as the best in the industry due to their durability, high build quality, and ease of installation.

  2. Low maintenance: Vinyl plank flooring is also incredibly low maintenance. Unlike hardwood or stone flooring, which can be susceptible to scratches, stains, and water damage, vinyl plank flooring is resistant to all of these things. It is also very easy to clean, requiring only regular sweeping or vacuuming and occasional damp mopping. At the end of the day, if damage does occur, it's extremely easy to replace one or two boards of flooring at a time.

  3. Durable: Vinyl plank flooring is made to last. It is resistant to scratches, scuffs, and dents, making it a great choice for high-traffic areas like kitchens and entryways. Our MBA product line is water proof, making it an ideal flooring option for bathrooms and laundry rooms. If a major water leak occurs, all you have to do is temporarily remove the affected planks to allow the water to dry, and then put them back into place. It's really that simple!

  4. Versatile: Vinyl plank flooring comes in a variety of colors, patterns, and textures, making it a versatile option for any home decor style. It can mimic the look of hardwood, stone, or even tile, and can be used to create a cohesive look throughout a home.

  5. Affordable: Finally, vinyl plank flooring is an affordable option for homeowners who want the look and durability of hardwood or stone without the high price tag. It is often less expensive than hardwood or stone flooring, and can be a cost-effective way to update the look of a room or entire home.

Overall, vinyl plank flooring offers a range of benefits that make it a top choice for many homeowners. It is easy to install, low maintenance, durable, versatile, and affordable. If you're considering new flooring for your home, vinyl plank flooring is definitely worth considering.
