I am thinking of installing vinyl plank flooring in a cottage, however, I'm concerned about buckling in the winter. Is there a certain type, thickness, or backing it should have to avoid this? Otherwise other comparable flooring suggestions that would be suitable in the same price range?
There is a vinyls floor with a cork underlayment I get pretty cheap at a distributor called cosmaroma. Ive had 0 issues with it crackling or buckling. I use it directly on concrete in basements and like I say no issues.
That is an excellent question. The great thing about vinyl plank flooring is that it is not susceptible to that problem. Vinyl Plank flooring is moisture proof so it does not suffer from any moisture related issues, such as buckling, that other wood/laminate floors do.
So go ahead and install vinyl plank in your cottage with piece of mind, just be sure to hire a professional flooring installer to do it.

I've always wondered why vinyl flooring wouldn't be the best for a cottage. Seems everyone wants to make the cottage better than the house they live in. Is there a particular reason?
