Waterproof Engineered Vinyl Plank (EVP) flooring is an increasingly popular subset of Luxury Vinyl Flooring (LVF) for Honolulu homes. While EVP flooring is similar to engineered hardwood and laminate in its thickness, it is actually is even more durable. This makes Engineered Vinyl Plank a great economic and low-maintenance flooring option for any project.
EVP flooring is composed of three main layers that make it so durable. The base layer is made of a cork material that adds overall cushioning to the plank. The middle layer is an extremely dense core board, topped with a layer of vinyl made to resemble any color and style of wood or stone with high-resolution images.
Due to its density, EVP flooring is completely waterproof. Seriously! This makes it great for kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and other high moisture areas. If you like the look of hardwood floors but are worried about upkeep and potential spills then Engineered Vinyl Plank flooring might be a good fit. You can enjoy the beautiful look of hardwood completely worry-free! Besides the waterproof benefits, EVP floors are scratch resistant and can have a lifespan of more than 30 years! They don’t need to be refinished like hardwood floors do so lifetime maintenance is also very minimal.
Each plank snaps together to form what looks like one continuous design. EVP flooring is easy for the Floor Coverings International Oahu to install and requires virtually zero prep work. No sticky adhesives or nails necessary! The flexible cork base helps absorb any inconsistencies in your subfloor. EVP flooring can be installed relatively quickly if you are looking for a fast project with minimal downtime.
Environmental impact is another key deciding factor for many homeowners in the Honolulu, Oahu area. Engineered Vinyl Planks can be made from recycled materials and are perfect for the environmentally-conscious homeowner.
