When customers visit our discount flooring store in Woodinville, they’re full of questions about vinyl plank. It’s not as popular as tile and hardwood, so there’s a lot of people who still don’t know about it. While we love talking to new people and answering questions, we thought we’d compile some of the most frequently asked questions in this mini online guide, and answer them.

How To Care For Vinyl Tile Flooring?
Vinyl tile flooring (and other options) are easy to clean. Regular sweeping, and plain old soap and water will do the trick. Avoid harsh cleaning products, and ask the manufacturer for product-specific recommendations if you’re curious. You should be able to reach the company via email or social media.
Are There Any Disadvantages Of Vinyl Plank Flooring?
Like every other material, vinyl flooring has its disadvantages. It’s not eco-friendly, for example, has no effect on your home’s value (for resale), can be difficult to repair or remove, and it has a shorter lifespan than other flooring options such as hardwood and tile – both of which we sell. If you’d like to compare different materials, visit our store sometime and we’ll take you through the different options.
What Brand Of Vinyl Plank Flooring Is The Best?
Some popular brands include US Floors Coretec, Pergo, Karndean, Armstrong, Mannington Adura and Tarkett. At Builders Interiors, we keep products from some of the best manufacturers in the country. We have a large warehouse with luxury vinyl tile, planks and sheets in various prints, colors and textures.
How Thick Should The Wear Layer Be?
The more the wear you expect, the thicker the wear layer. Also, if the wear layer is thicker, you can usually expect the floor to last longer. If you have pets, if you like to move furniture around, or if you’re looking for flooring options for a commercial space, go with a thick wear layer. Low-traffic areas like bathrooms are fine with a thinner layer.
What Goes Under Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring?
Vinyl plank flooring installation is quick and easy, because it doesn’t need any underlayment. Most of the time the planks come with a pad attached.
What Is The Difference Between Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) And Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)?
The difference is simple – LVP looks like wood (different colors and species), while LVT looks like natural stone or ceramic. Both look extremely realistic, and are available in textured varieties for an even more realistic look and feel.
