I saw the issues that came with hardwood floors first hand time after time doing service work for new home construction. I also used laminate in a couple of my own homes as an affordable alternative to hardwood but had issues in the first year with water and chipping.
We decided to install luxury vinyl plank when we built our current home. Its been over one year since we moved into our home, and I wanted to take a few minutes to walk through and show you how it has held up in terms of scratches and dings, spills, and humidity, and temperature changes!
