luxury vinyl plank doesn't seem durable enough for rental


Still on my quest to find a durable flooring to replace carpet in the bedrooms, that is easy to install.

If you need furniture pads just to use vinyl plank, that sounds like a huge hassle for tenants.
And you know tenants are not going to put pads on everything.

Chairs with rollers, chairs with no rollers, dragging back and forth, could make gouge marks in the planks within 1 year ?

The conditions you describe will apply to ANY type of flooring you install, so you may have to set your worry dial a little lower and install an appropriate floor. The vinyl planks have a great warranty for the most part and may be your best bet.

vinyl plank warranties have lots of gotchas.

Car warranties have a lot, too. If it is installed according to manufacturer's specifications, there is little that can't be covered under warranty.

Some tenants are great. Other will damage any floor....so be it...

Important thing IMO is to buy and keep many extra pieces of the flooring
to use to repair the floor when the time comes. I haven't done this with
lux vinyl but have done it (recently) with laminate.

Found a video showing process for lux vinyl, it's basically same as laminate.

Also, I don't fix floors while the tenant still lives there. If they damaged it
they can live with forever as far as I care. Gets fixed when they move out.
YMMV

Re: luxury vinyl plank doesn't seem durable enough for rental


Our local Hospice installed luxury vinyl in all of their patient rooms 5 or 6 years ago. They take a beating. I mean, can you imagine beds being moved, people in and out of rooms all day, vacuuming, mopping, scrubbing.......anyway, they still look good to this day. I'd say luxury vinyl can handle some tenants.
