Is hand scraped vinyl flooring available?

In your great search for the perfect flooring, you have finally decided that vinyl has all of the features that you need. However, you absolutely love the look of handscraped laminate flooring… Can you have the best of both worlds?

Absolutely, You Can!

Handscraped vinyl flooring is definitely an option! Manufacturer’s have plenty of choices when it comes to laminate and vinyl flooring. They understand that some people want their wood vinyl flooring to actually look like wood! The handscraped finish gives the floor an authentic wood look that can be mistaken for real hardwood. With natural wood features, lines and grooves, hand scraped finish vinyl floors are the perfect way to add warmth to your space.

  1. I want to understand the difference (moisture wise) between Pergo XP Outlast Spill protect (specifically) and vinyl Plank Flooring.
    I have an older dog who is having indoor accident every so often and I am possibly going to have a puppy within the next couple years. I want to know if the locking system of the Pergo brand will keep pet urine from seeping under the floor vs the same question with Vinyl Planks.
    Also, can either of the above be used in the kitchen and bathroom?
    Thank you for this. I just can’t make up my mind.

      Hi Sue – that is a great question! We do not sell the Pergo XP Spill Protect, so we are not 100% sure about what the technology is, but we can let you know how a laminate and vinyl are different. With any laminate, you are dealing with a wood-based product. With that said, moisture and humidity, as well as drastic temperature changes can cause damage to the planks. Most household accidents can be easily cleaned up without affecting the laminate. We do not recommend using laminate in a full bathroom, but it can be used in a kitchen or half bath without issue. Sealing the edges of your laminate planks is also an option to help limit any water damage or pet accidents.

      With a vinyl, you have a rubber based product that is naturally moisture/water proof. This flooring would be better recommended for kitchens, bathrooms and areas prone to water, such as an entry. We would recommend the vinyl over a laminate in your situation.

  2. Wow, I love the look of that flooring. It gives the building such an awesome, modern look. It’d be nice to have my own small business with flooring like that. Maybe I’ll convince my husband that our store needs new flooring.
