Vinyl plank flooring in Mt. Pleasant, TX from Shumate Floor Covering

Can vinyl plank flooring be installed over concrete?

Vinyl plank flooring adapts to a homeowner's needs, so installing planks over concrete is easy. It's also simple to find the exact plank style you have in mind for your flooring upgrade when you shop at Shumate Floor Covering in Mt. Pleasant, TX.

We offer a large selection of the latest luxury vinyl flooring styles from top companies like COREtec and Karndean Designflooring.

Multi-layer makeup

Vinyl plank floors
have a backing, core, image, and wear layer. Waterproof brands include a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core, and both types of planks are ideal for installation on cement.

That’s because 100-percent waterproof vinyl flooring won’t shrink, expand, buckle, or warp when exposed to moisture or water.

Wear layer

The wear layer is just as tough as the core layer, which means that LVP flooring can be installed anywhere in your home, including in high-traffic areas.

In addition, this transparent surface layer protects the patterned design, stone, ceramic, or wood image layer from stains and abrasion. Vinyl plank flooring with a 20-mil wear layer is expected to last 25 years or more.

Luxury vinyl flooring installation

Planks designed for floating floor installation are ideal for cement subfloor applications. This type of flooring clicks and locks together, so it needs no attachment to the surface beneath it.

In addition, padding enhances the appearance and the performance of luxury vinyl flooring, and some brands include the necessary vapor barrier to keep moisture away from the floor.
