Vinyl plank flooring in a Baton Rouge, LA home

How do laminate and vinyl plank flooring differ?

Luxury vinyl plank
and laminate offer outstanding wood-look options that range in pattern, design, color, and texture. Still, they also differ from one another in a few critical ways. So read along with us in today's post to find out more about these two different materials.

Luxury vinyl plank and laminate can meet similar needs but not all

Laminate offers the beautiful visuals you expect of the product, along with layered construction, durability, and water-resistant and waterproof material options. But the waterproof protection laminate offers runs from top to bottom, so you’ll still need a moisture barrier if you are concerned about subfloor moisture issues.

You’ll get many of the same visual benefits with vinyl plank flooring, with colors, textures, and formats that are incredibly realistic. However, the waterproof protection you’ll find in these products knows no boundaries.

Whichever product you choose, you'll find both offers a quick and easy installation and are easier to care for than the materials they look like. When you’re ready to see the differences in person and discuss their characteristics further, we’ll be waiting to work with you when you arrive at our showroom.
