Factors to consider

When comparing vinyl plank flooring to determine what is right for your needs, consider the thickness of the vinyl and the wear layer as well as the installation method. Planks come in several thicknesses, each of which is ideal for different rooms in the home.

  • 2–3 mm: low-traffic areas that have an even subfloor
  • 3.2–4.0 mm: high-traffic areas like kitchens and living rooms
  • 5 mm or more: highest quality and therefore, most attractive and durable; great for hiding subfloor imperfections

The wear layer, or the top layer of the vinyl flooring, determines the durability of the flooring.

  • A no-wax coating, made from urethane or vinyl, comes in a variety of thicknesses and budget options. A new coating needs to be applied every 2 to 3 years.
  • An enhanced urethane coating, made from advanced materials like aluminum oxide, provides the best protection against everyday wear and extends the life of the flooring.
  • Planks with a wear layer of 10 mils or more are the most durable; choose this option for moderate to high traffic areas of your home.The flooring can be installed with or without glue.
  • Planks can be glued to the subfloor for a permanent installation that resists peeling and slipping. This application is especially appealing for high traffic areas.
  • Floating planks click together like tongue-and-groove wood planks. No glue is needed during installation so DIYers usually find that it is easy to lay a floor. It’s also easy to replace a plank that has been damaged.
