Continue reading to gain a better understanding of this flooring type.
What is Hybrid Flooring?
Hybrid flooring crosses two popular flooring types: laminate and vinyl. Vinyl and laminate are combined to create a long-lasting and hard-wearing flooring option.
Laminate flooring is prone to swelling because it is not waterproof. Vinyl flooring is water-resistant but difficult to install because the planks must be glued to the floor. Hybrid flooring combines the benefits of laminate and vinyl flooring while eliminating their drawbacks.
What is the Composition of Hybrid Flooring?
Hybrid flooring is made up of four layers:
- The top layer is UV coated for durability and impact resistance. It will prevent wear and tear from everyday use.
- Decorative layer that resembles timber flooring.
- Limestone composite core board for waterproof and temperature-resistant flooring.
- The underlay is pre-adhered and has an acoustic backing for comfort and sound absorption. In addition, because the floor comes with an underlay, you won’t need to add one during installation, saving you time and money.
Hybrid Vinyl Flooring Price – What Impacts it
Hybrid vinyl flooring is a nice choice for any home, but it’s important to know what impacts its price.
Size is one of the most significant factors that impact the price of hybrid vinyl flooring. In general, larger rooms will cost more than smaller ones because they require more materials to cover them. This is especially true with larger tiles, which may have a higher per-square-foot cost due to their size.
Let’s talk about core type—the two main options are SPC and WPC. SPC is made primarily with plastic resins and has a lower density than WPC, which makes it lighter and easier to install. On the other hand, WPC floors are made from recycled wood products, so they are more expensive than their plastic counterparts.
The price will also affect how the hybrid floor is laminated to give a wood look. In most cases, the printed and sealed layers are more affordable than those that use vinyl or other materials for the wood grain.
Choosing a flooring system for your home is challenging, especially with many available options. That is why obtaining an exact quote for your project is critical based on your dimensions and the material(s) you intend to use because the average range of hybrid vinyl flooring starts from $20.00.
