Vinyl plank in Maple Ridge, BC from Diverse Flooring

Are laminate and luxury vinyl plank flooring the same thing?

Consider both laminate and vinyl plank flooring if you're looking for plank flooring. But are these two products the same thing?

Each material offers benefits that could serve you well, based on your specific needs. And it can help to take time to consider the attributes of each one.

Luxury vinyl plank flooring

LVP flooring
comes in various thicknesses, some of which are very thin. That means you might need underlayment to match the carpet or hardwood in the next room or hallway.
Luxury vinyl flooring offers 100% waterproof protection that works in every room. Even in flood conditions, you can reinstall these floors once clean and dry.

Installation methods for luxury vinyl include floating and glue-down options. Thinner products may need underlayment if the product doesn't come with one attached.

Laminate flooring

The typical thickness for most laminate flooring is a half-inch, which transitions well. Underlayment is available but isn't often necessary for height requirements.

Laminate also provides both water-resistant and waterproof options. Be sure to ask how this top-to-bottom protection will work with your specific needs.

A typical laminate installation is a floating method featuring click and lock technology. You can walk on your new floors as soon as the installation is complete.
