Luxury vinyl plank vs. solid hardwood

Luxury vinyl plank vs. solid hardwood

The look of wood flooring is one of the most sought-after visuals in the flooring industry because it’s classic, elegant, and a perfect décor match for so many options. But which non-hardwood product is the best for achieving this visual goal?

You may need some added information to decide if you’re stuck between natural hardwood and luxury vinyl flooring. Here are some facts about the two products that could help you conclude today.

Features that are the same

Both luxury vinyl and hardwood bring the beauty and character that only comes with a wood-look product. With an extensive range of stain colors, species, and format choices, you're sure to find the perfect décor match in either product line.

You’ll also find that both products offer extensive durability, even in busy households. Both are easy to clean and maintain after luxury vinyl flooring is installed.

Features that are different

Between the two, only luxury vinyl flooring provides 100% waterproof protection, guarding against all water damage, even in flood conditions. And while this product line offers a shorter lifespan opportunity, it’s easy and more affordable to replace luxury vinyl than solid hardwood.

The installation service for hardwood can take days, including an acclimation process that takes one to three days. Solid hardwood sanding, staining, and finishing add to the installation if you choose site-finished instead of prefinished materials.
