You can choose many different kinds of new floors for your remodel. Each material offers various attributes and benefits to serve your needs.

If you're stuck choosing between luxury vinyl and hardwood, you might wonder which is best. Here are some facts to help make that decision a little easier.


Consider the benefits of luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl offers lots of valuable benefits, including extensive durability. You'll see fewer scratches, stains, and scuffs, for a better look longer.

These floors are also 100% waterproof, resisting all forms of water damage. These are perfect for kitchen and bathroom flooring, and our flooring company offers something for every room of your home.


Consider the benefits of hardwood flooring

Hardwood is a hard-wearing, long-lasting material that caters to many requirements. You'll get extensive personalization options as well for a perfect decor match.

Adding specific installation layouts like herringbone or chevron can improve the floor's stability. And with professional installation, they can last more than 100 years.


Which is better for you?

Luxury vinyl is the better choice if you have issues with dampness, humidity, or spills. It also costs less, is easier to install, and is easier to replace with new floors.

Hardwood is the obvious choice if you prefer luxurious visuals and a long lifespan. It gives you plenty of decor matching choices and can be refinished several times.
