Unique Features of Shaw Luxury Vinyl Plank Flooring 

Shaw's LVP has many of the features you'd typically find in luxury vinyl plank flooring, but they also have a few features that are entirely unique. 

  • Stone and Wood Look: Shaw luxury vinyl plank flooring is available in wood and stone looks. They are beautiful and appealing to the eye. They also offer flooring that looks like granite, slate, and other natural stones. Most vinyl planks on the market strictly give you a wood appearance, but Shaw offers many other options. 
  • Two Ways to Install: Shaw’s vinyl planks can either be installed in a floating manner or glued down. For many small rooms, interlocking LVPs can be used but for larger rooms, it is recommended they be glued down. You can place Shaw luxury vinyl planks on any sub-flooring and even over surfaces with grout lines. They also have padding which means you won't need an underlayment. 
  • Waterproof: Shaw's vinyl planks are made with a unique waterproof feature. This feature extends all the way to the edges of the planks sealing out moisture. This makes them perfect for use in moisture-prone areas like laundry rooms, bathrooms, and kitchens.
  • Warranty: Depending on the line, size, and style of Shaw luxury vinyl plank flooring you choose, there is a warranty that can last for 20 years to a lifetime. Of course, this depends on the situation and what the warranty covers.
