What Is Luxury Vinyl Plank?
When you hear the word vinyl you probably think sheet vinyl or vinyl tiles that require messy glue to install. No longer! Luxury vinyl planks, LVP for short, is quickly gaining popularity in homes and business everywhere. Some of the LVPs out there are hardly even recognizable as vinyl and look like a real wood product.
So, what is LVP? Luxury vinyl planks are easy to install planks that don’t usually require glue. Most LVPs are in the drop-lock or tap-down installations. Drop-lock meaning you just align the tongue and grooves and tap-down meaning you align then use a rubber mallet to secure into place.
