What is Hybrid Vinyl Flooring
Hybrid Flooring Benefits
- Aesthetic Look. The feel and look of traditional hardwoods are impressively imitated by the edges, imaging technology, and texture of the planks. One of the advantages other than price over hardwoods is its low maintenance.
- Sound Reduction. A hardwood or laminate flooring creates a hollow sound when you walk over it. The almost soundless effect brought on by hybrid click flooring is due to its rigid core technology. Stepping on the floors produces a very solid step, producing almost minimal sound. A much lighter sound can be achieved by opting for an underlayment.
- Waterproof. The 100% waterproof features of hybrid vinyl planks make them the ideal flooring for all interior areas of a home or office. The planks can also be installed below or above grade.
- Commercial Use. Commercial spaces can benefit from hybrid vinyl flooring. The planks are waterproof, durable, and resistant to stain as well. The fade resistance feature of laminates is also gained with the use of hybrid vinyl flooring.
- A Cinch to Maintain and Clean. Vinyl and laminate are low-maintenance and a cinch to clean. Make that hybrid vinyl flooring and you get the same easy to maintain and clean benefit. All it needs is a regular deeper cleaning every week, spot cleaning, and sweeping.
- Comfy and Cozy. The core’s rigid construction of the hybrid vinyl flooring provides thicker and denser flooring than traditional vinyl. Choosing hybrid planks with an underlayment or attached underlayment adds comfortable cushy feel. Sound absorption is another benefit gained from opting for hybrid flooring with an underlayment.
The biggest con with this type of flooring is the price. Due to the engineering of a vinyl and laminate together, you will find hybrid flooring more expensive than traditional vinyl or laminate. If you’re looking for an exceptional appearance mixed with unmatched waterproof durability, you may find the price tag is worth it!
