Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) and Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) are durable and affordable flooring options that have the appearance of hardwood or stone flooring without the hassle. While being fairly new options, LVP and LVT have made names for themselves as dominant leaders in the flooring industry. Luxury vinyl planks generally last up to 20 years with proper maintenance and look almost identical to solid hardwood flooring.

LVP is made up of many layers, typically with an underlayment that makes the floor more comfortable and more insulated. These layers make the vinyl stay stronger for longer without the curling edges that home and business owners fear. Depending on your LVP, your flooring can be textured or smooth, but in either case, it’s very durable. Additionally, you have options as to if you want glue-down or click-together LVP.

Why Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring?

Luxury vinyl flooring of all kinds is becoming more popular in homes and businesses than ever, but why? As with any flooring, you might be wondering what the luxury vinyl plank pros and cons are. LVP is waterproof, easy to install, easy to clean, and scuff- and wear-resistant. But the advantages to luxury vinyl plank flooring don’t end there. High-definition printers can make LVP look just like hardwood flooring at a fraction of the cost. Additionally, LVP flooring is easier to repair and take out than most other flooring types. Lastly, because LVP is made up of several layers, LVP flooring is more soundproof than laminate flooring and provides a non-slip grip.

LVP Types

When you’re wanting the best luxury vinyl plank flooring, we have a large selection for you to look through in our showroom. Find the right type of LVP flooring for you in look, durability, and cost at GS Flooring. Here are three LVP types we offer:

Expanded Polymer Core

This type of LVP flooring has tiny pockets of air to give the flooring better acoustics and a less-resistant step. You can add a backing to expanded polymer core LVP flooring to make it even softer on your feet.

Engineered Vinyl Plank

Engineered vinyl planks mimic the look and texture of real hardwood flooring flawlessly. These planks are also easy to install and stay in place.

Solid Polymer Core

Solid polymer-core plank flooring is harder, but it can help stabilize temperatures in a room. You typically can place this type of flooring without glue or other adhesives, which makes it easy to work with if you’re planning on DIY flooring.


LVP and LVT are very similar flooring types. Both are affordable and waterproof, but there are some key differences between them, particularly in appearance. Luxury vinyl planks are specifically designed to look like hardwood in texture and appearance. Alternatively, luxury vinyl tiles can mimic the appearance of wood, ceramic, or stone flooring.
