How Durable Is Vinyl Flooring?


Vinyl flooring is waterproof and can hold up under stress. Even so, if you’ve got an active household with children and pets, you may still ask yourself, “Does vinyl flooring damage easily?” With hardwearing vinyl flooring, you can rest assured that you’re investing in a long-lasting product. Vinyl plank is also a budget-friendly way to get realistic wood and stone looks that help complement your décor.


Both luxury vinyl plank (LVP) and rigid vinyl plank (RVP) contain a protective wear layer—with LL Flooring providing a thicker wear layer than most other brands. Some options are even suitable for commercial use. When it comes to the plank itself, our RVP products have a stone-polymer core (SPC) for superior stability and dent resistance compared to wood-polymer core (WPC) planks.
