Need New Commercial Flooring? Choose Engineered Vinyl Plank Flooring

If you need new commercial flooring for your business, you have many options to choose from. One of these options is engineered vinyl plank flooring. Below is information on what this is, as well as the benefits of choosing this so you can decide if you would like to install this flooring for your business.

Engineered Vinyl Plank Flooring

Engineered vinyl plank (EVP) flooring replicates flooring like stone and hardwood. If you like stone or hardwood flooring, you likely know how expensive this can be. With EVP flooring you can have the look of stone or hardwood without having to pay the high costs associated with it. 

EVP flooring has five layers. The bottom layer is made of a backing that absorbs sounds. The next layer is made of a rigid stone-based core which keeps the vinyl planks stable. The next layer is the vinyl core layer which makes the EVP flooring waterproof. The next layer is the decorative layer. This can be a replica of ceramic, stone, hardwood, and a variety of 3D visual options available. The top layer is a clear protective cover to make the flooring resistant to scratches and makes the flooring much more durable. 

EVP Flooring Benefits

There are many benefits of EVP flooring. The fact that it is waterproof means it can be installed in any type of commercial business. This includes restaurants where things are often spilled, as well as businesses that manufacture liquid products. If you choose EVP flooring that replicates stone or wood, most people will not be able to tell the difference between the real thing. 

EVP flooring is easier to install when compared to other types. It is much like putting a puzzle together as it comes in separate planks that you click together. This also means you can save even more money in installation costs as the installer can install this flooring faster resulting in fewer labor charges. 

EVP flooring has a soft surface when compared to the hardness of stone or wood. This means it is much more comfortable to walk on. This is beneficial for employees, especially ones that walk a lot during the day. You also do not have to worry about shoes making sounds when someone is walking across the floor because the flooring is sound-absorbent.

All The Better To Walk On

Have you ever walked across a certain floor and thought to yourself, "wow, this floor feels nice to walk on." Chances are, that floor was cushioned in some way. Yes, the surface may have been made from tile or some other hard material, but there was probably some sort of padding underneath the outer tile that gave the floor some "play" and made walking over it a more comfortable experience. Flooring is like that. Its comfort really depends on its construction. You can learn all about flooring, how it is constructed, and more on this blog, where we publish regularly.
