Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) flooring dates back to the 1970s as an affordable alternative to hardwood flooring. Today the quality of this product makes it a valued alternative not just for appearance, but also for situations in which a 100% waterproof product is needed. While this product is often used in areas that are prone to water damage, it is something for everyone to consider if they want to be safe from flooding and the subsequent costly and lengthy process of flooring restoration.
Here at Above Board Flooring, we could tell you about ADURA®Max LVP flooring, but instead we’d like to share with you a recent real-life experience. Darrell’s Seafood Restaurant in Manteo, North Carolina, experienced flooding from Hurricane Michael. The entire restaurant’s flooring was submerged, and the damage looked bad, as you can see in this photo:
The LVP flooring was removed and allowed to dry while the subfloor was aired out and dried. The planks were able to be reinstalled with no complications, thanks to the waterproof core that allowed the planks to become solid and straight again. The entire process of flooring restoration took very little time and they were able to reopen in just three days. This “after” photo shows the floor looking like brand new!
Seeing these results is just one reason why we are proud to offer LVP flooring. Turn to us for quality flooring options for your home or business.
