The differences between LVT, Laminate and WPC

WPC emerges as the best option for wood flooring and the big new thing on the market, it is only matter of showing the customers the potential and characteristics of the product and all the benefits of having WPC planks as the best option for customers.

One of the most important questions to be answered is the differences between Luxury Vinyl Tiles, known as LVT and WPC Planks.

How does it differ from LVT?

The main differences are that WPC is waterproof and can go over most subfloors without much preparation. Traditional vinyl floors are flexible and any unevenness in the subfloor will transfer through the surface.

Compared to traditional glue-down LVT or solid-locking LVT, WPC products have a distinct advantage because the rigid core hides subfloor imperfections.

In addition, the rigid core allows for longer and wider formats. With WPC, it is not necessary to worry about the preparation LVT would require for use over cracks and divots in concrete or wooden subfloors.

What are its advantages over laminate?

The big advantage for WPC over laminate besides being waterproof as mentioned earlier, it is alsosuitable for environments in which laminate shouldn’t normally be used, typically bathrooms and basements that have potential moisture infiltration.

In addition, WPC products can be installed in large rooms without an expansion gap every 30 feet, which is a requirement for laminate floors.

The vinyl wear layer of WPC provides cushion and comfort andabsorbs the impact sound to make it a quiet floor. WPC is also suitable for large open areas (basements and Main Street commercial areas) because it doesn’t need expansion moldings.
