Vinyl planks floor coverings need constant up keep. Constantly they peel and bow. The simple change in temperature will make the material stretch and shrink. Vinyl is not meant to take such abuse as what your floor takes. From your feet and that of your guest and if you have little people around then forget it.

Vinyl plank flooring is a new type of flooring which offers a wood look at a reasonable price. It won't scratch as easily as wood flooring, is easier to install, and a little easier on the pocketbook. The floor will be cleaned thoroughly and an adhesive will be spread over the subfloor, to which the planks will be adhered.

They are very cheap and easy to install, but tend to slip and move over time. Good for a short-term fix, but not for a long-term floor solution.
