Luxury vinyl tile from All-Pro Floors in Arlington, TX

What is the difference between luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile?

Luxury vinyl is a practical flooring that is superior to standard vinyl. It can be installed anywhere in the home, including the basement. Vinyl flooring has many applications since it can’t be damaged by moisture or water. Homeowners, especially those with children or pets, can easily clean up spills or accidents. All-Pro Floors, located in Arlington, Texas, is a family-owned and operated flooring retailer. We offer a wide selection of luxury vinyl flooring and much more.

Plank vs tile

Luxury vinyl planks usually mimic hardwood while luxury vinyl tile usually imitates ceramic or natural stone. Slate, travertine, and marble are popular stones. Planks come in narrow and wide styles while tile sizes are many. Designs for both are created with advanced 3D printing technology that is capable of deep embossing. Because luxury vinyl is thicker than standard sheet vinyl, designs are more realistic. These multi-ply products have a backing, core, design, and wear layer. Luxury vinyl resists scratches, stains, scuffs, and dirt. Brands labeled 'waterproof' can be covered in water for an extended period without buckling or warping.


Luxury vinyl flooring
can be installed over almost any type of subfloor, including wood, concrete, and existing flooring. The subfloor must be in good shape. If there is damage, installers will repair it before installing planks or tiles. Generally, planks are installed without glue while tiles are more likely to come in a peel and stick or glue down styles. Some brands of tile use grout for a more realistic look. Flooring that is not glued to the subfloor usually uses click and lock technology. Planks or tiles connect to form a floor that floats over the subfloor.
