Team Calhoun’s Advantages and Disadvantages of Luxury Vinyl Flooring

(LVF/LVP/LVT/LVR) (aka Waterproof Flooring)

Advantages

  • Luxury vinyl flooring is arguably the easiest flooring solution to maintain.
  • Luxury vinyl flooring comes in color and style for just about any palette. It can replicate natural wood, beautiful tile, and even barnwood.
  • Team Calhoun’s opinion: luxury vinyl flooring is a “lifestyle” product, meaning it will take the use, abuse, and even neglect of a busy lifestyle.

Disadvantages

  • Luxury vinyl flooring can often be perceived and even sold as “scratch-proof.” LVF is not “scratch-proof,” and being overpromised is often is the #1 complaint of this flooring solution. No flooring solution is “scratch-proof,” and therefore, when appropriately sold, consumers will be educated to take necessary precautions.
  • Luxury vinyl flooring replicates wood and tile looks. If hardwood and tile cost, maintenance, and durability are not an issue, these products may better suit a consumer. LVF is the clear choice for those with busy and chaotic lifestyles.

Why Professional Installation Is So Important

Installation errors could be detrimental to any flooring surface. Consumers are strongly encouraged to weigh the benefits of cost savings to do a project themselves compared to having the flooring professionally installed by Calhoun’s skilled in-house installers.
