Why I think LifeProof Flooring is the best Barndominium flooring on the market
When designing my personal custom barndominium, I knew durable, pet-friendly floors suited the rustic yet livable aesthetic I envisioned and ultimately required having a wild beagle running around. We decided on LifeProof vinyl plank flooring throughout the entire barndo home for a number of reasons, mainly it’s resilience, longevity and ongoing value. Here’s why LifeProof proved the perfect floors for My needs and why I think you would love it as well.
Made from rigid stone-plastic composite (SPC), LifeProof vinyl flooring resists scratches, stains and dents even under heavy use from kids, pets and furniture. I never worry about a dropped dish or spilled wine permanently damaging LifeProof’s Embossed in Register surface texture. The first day I went to look at the actual material and put my hands on it, Before I could a sales gentleman came out with a 8Lb Sledge Hammer and with all his might gave the flooring 2 solid thuds that had to have hurt his arms, it didn’t as much as leave a scratch on the flooring. I was so impressed and sure that was the product I needed I ordered 2000sqft of the. flooring on the spot. Not to mention the waterproof construction holds up to muddy paws, radient floor heat systems and high humidity inevitable with barndo living.
Ease of Installation
Unlike fussy hardwood or messy concrete staining, LifeProof’s handy locking system allows rapid floating click-together installation without glue needed. I saved hugely on labor and mistakes doing the install myself with few tools beyond a miter saw thanks to the builder-friendly design. The lightweight 8.5 pound tiles proved easy for one person to maneuver as well.
You would never guess LifeProof isn’t genuine wood or stone. I chose the barnwood below and it looks so real it’s hard to tell honestly. Details like grain patterns and color variations capture the elegance of natural materials perfectly. I would customize the look room-by-room with oak, maple and slate-inspired planks suiting each space’s vision. The variety and realism amped up the custom feel of my barndo tremendously.
Added Home Value
While upfront costs exceed carpet or laminate, LifeProof promises enormous long-term value. The durable construction should easily outlast my barndominium frame itself with no worn paths, scratches or needs to re-stain inevitable with hardwood. And the trendy looks in a premium SPC floor lures future buyers. My realtor confirmed choosing LifeProof boosted resale appeal substantially over basic floors.
I have no regrets at all with selecting LifeProof luxury vinyl flooring as the surface star of my First barndominium home. The Pet-friendly durability, immense style options and boosted home value from LifeProof floors make enjoyment of my steel barn house ensured for decades to come!
