Engineered Vinyl Plank Floors: Everything Lake Tahoe Homeowners Need to Know

Combining durability, style and waterproof technology, these floors let you live worry-free.

Vinyl plank flooring is a multi-layer, durable material that offers the look, and sometimes the texture, of wood while offering more versatility and less expense.


Most Lake Tahoe homeowners have active lifestyles. The aftermath of hiking and skiing combined with dogs and children can be hard on floors! That’s why we love Engineered Vinyl Plank flooring. Not only is it durable and resistant to scratches and stains, it’s easy to clean and doesn’t require additional maintenance.  Bonus – it’s generally less expensive than many other types of flooring options, making it a popular flooring choice for all Lake Tahoe and Truckee homeowners. 


Engineered Vinyl Plank flooring is waterproof and pet friendly, making it ideal for kitchens, laundry rooms, bathrooms, and mudrooms. The incredible strength of the material makes it a great choice for families with pets.  


Engineered Vinyl Plank flooring comes in a wide array of styles, making it easy to find a product that mimics the look of any type of hardwood or tile. Keep it classic with a rich oak-inspired finish or bring a rustic, casual look to the space with a gray farmhouse-style product. With so many different options available, it is easy to find one that elevates your existing home or business décor.


Engineered Vinyl Plank is available in a wide rainbow of hues, ranging from light and casual to deep and dramatic in tone. Lighter colors can make a room appear larger while darker colors make a big room seem more intimate and inviting. Dark floors often require more frequent vacuuming because dust is more visible against the surface. Browse the entire collection and consider the tone of existing cabinetry, walls, and furnishings when selecting the color that makes the best choice for your space.


Because Engineered Vinyl is crafted to resemble the look of wood and tile, it is available in a wide variety of widths and lengths.  


Engineered Vinyl Plank has become a popular choice because of the look it offers and the inexpensive price point of the product.  When trying to achieve the look of hardwood floors at a fraction of the price, vinyl plank flooring makes a fashionable choice. This strong and durable alternative goes places where hardwood flooring is not an option, including bathrooms. Make your open concept space seem larger and more fluid by running the same plank flooring from the front door through the back of the home without breaking the visual line!


Engineered Vinyl Plank is more durable, easy to maintain and resistant to scratches and stains than many other types of flooring, making it a great choice for Lake Tahoe homes with pets or children. 

To keep your vinyl plank floors looking their best, sweep them regularly with a soft broom or vacuum them with a soft brush attachment. You can also mop them with a mild soap and water solution. If you have any stubborn stains, you can scrub them with a soft-bristled brush or a vinyl floor cleaner.

If a floating plank ever gets damaged, it can often be replaced. At initial installation, make sure to reserve a couple extra planks for any repairs needed down the line.
