- Andrew Uhacz
If you're looking for new flooring for your home or commercial space, you know there are many options to choose from. While some are best suited for light residential use, others are more commonly used in commercial buildings with heavy foot traffic.
One of the options available to both homeowners and commercial property owners is Armstrong Rigid Core Luxury Vinyl Flooring. It offers several unique benefits including the fact that it's waterproof, stain proof, and resists dents and scratches.
It also comes in a variety of textures that mimic both hardwood and stone so it compliments any design aesthetic.
What Is Rigid Core Vinyl Flooring?
The best way to describe rigid core flooring is that it is an engineered vinyl floor with a rigid inner core. The way that it is constructed makes it solid, sturdy, and extremely durable.
When installed properly, it is virtually impossible to tell a rigid core vinyl floor from a traditional wood or stone floor.
It is ideal for any application, both residential and commercial, and is easy to install and maintain.
What Are the Benefits of Rigid Core Flooring?
Whether installed in a residential home or a business, rigid core vinyl flooring provides the following benefits:
- 100% Waterproof: All of Armstrong's rigid core vinyls are 100% waterproof so they are ideal for areas that are prone to moisture and humidity. Even spills won't damage the planks or cause them to swell.
- Beautiful Appearance: Rigid core vinyls mimic real hardwoods and tile so it's hard to tell them apart. They also keep their good looks longer than natural materials due to their scratch and dent resistance.
- Unparalleled Comfort: Standing on a traditional vinyl floor for long periods can cause discomfort. The dense core and thickness of rigid core vinyl planks make it a softer, more comfortable surface.
- Sound Dampening: Traditional hardwood, stone, and vinyl floors are noisy and distracting. Rigid core vinyl planks dampen the sound of footsteps, creating a quieter, more peaceful space.
- Easy to Maintain: There are no special requirements for cleaning and maintaining a rigid core vinyl floor. In fact, a quick sweep and a damp mop is often all that's needed to keep them looking their best.
- Ease of Installation: Rigid core vinyl flooring is easier to install than natural materials and requires less prep than standard vinyl. It can actually be installed by a homeowner with a limited DIY experience.
- Affordability: When compared with hardwood and natural stone, rigid core vinyl flooring is a less-expensive alternative. Because it lasts longer than traditional vinyl there is less replacement cost.
