Flooring Thickness Makes a Difference

Flooring is an investment in the comfort and appearance of a home or business. Individuals expect their flooring to last. What many people don’t realize is that the thickness of their flooring will have an impact on its overall performance. There are minimum thickness standards for each type of flooring. Individuals will need to consider their budget when choosing flooring as thicker flooring will cost more.

Hides Flaws

If there are imperfections in the subflooring, thicker flooring makes it easier to hide those flaws.

Squeaks & Sounds

Noisy floors can be extremely annoying. Thicker flooring helps alleviate squeaky floors and dampen the echoing effect in structures. Footfalls will sound softer since sounds won’t travel as well. It doesn’t matter whether individuals are laying hardwood flooring or luxury vinyl, the thickness of the material is an important factor.

Thicker flooring has insulative properties. It’s warmer to walk upon and warmer for children to play on. It’s also advantageous for older pets with stiff joints.

Strength & Stability

The flooring will be stronger, more resilient, and longer-lasting. It will lay flatter on the floor, be less likely to ripple or subject to damage, and it will be more uniformly even. The flooring will be better able to withstand high-foot traffic and dropped objects.


This is a particularly salient point. Thicker flooring is more comfortable to walk on. It’s an important consideration in areas where children, the elderly and pets are present.

Aesthetic Value

Thicker floor coverings, especially in luxury vinyl and laminate, allow for greater diversity. It’s easier for manufacturers to create more intricate patterns and designs.

A Word of Warning

Thickness doesn’t necessarily equate to better quality. Performance and durability will ultimately depend on the materials used. It’s always a good idea to consult with a specialist when selecting flooring. The professionals will be able to provide in-depth information about the materials and benefits of different brands.
