Engineered Timber vs Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Engineered timber flooring has dominated the market for decades and has therefore earned its title as one of the most popular and reliable choices when it comes to flooring options. Vinyl flooring on the other hand, has made resurgence back into the market over recent years in the form of “luxury vinyl;” whether it be planks or tiles. This revival has offered a cost effective alternative to owning that timber flooring aesthetic by making spaces look simply remarkable. This is due to its distinct high quality characteristics that allow it to compete highly with other flooring preferences out there.

Here at Trojan we provide a wide range of both engineered timber and luxury vinyl flooring to cater to limitless customers and projects. In doing this, we are often questioned about the differences and similarities surrounding these two prevalent products. Overall, these two flooring ranges at Trojan are commercially graded, meaning that they can be installed into both residential and commercial spaces due to their significant stability. In addition to this, they possess many comparable features such as their simple maintenance requirements, great durability and wide selection of styles available.

Trojan PROFLOOR Advantages:

  • Creates a natural and warm feeling to spaces

  • Adds resale value to properties

  • Incredibly durable and resilient

  • Timelessly beautiful appearance

Trojan Professional Luxury Vinyl Advantages:

  • Modern and economical flooring option

  • EIR embossing for true “wood look”

  • Larger plank size on the market

  • Made of 100% virgin vinyl


The installation processes of these two flooring alternatives are therefore different. Trojan’s engineered timber flooring requires the product to be installed as a floating floor or being directly stuck to the subfloor. Refer to timber flooring installation for more information. On the other hand, luxury vinyl flooring can be installed either by the loose lay process or the direct stick method, depending entirely on the area space. Check out our vinyl installation page for more information.


Here at Trojan we are so confident that our products are able to perform year in year out, even in the toughest environments. Therefore we provide a thirty year structural guarantee for our PROFLOOR products. Trojan Professional Luxury Vinyl comes with a ten year commercial warranty and fifteen year domestic warranty.

Comparing two of the most predominant flooring products on the market substantially depends on the customer’s intentions and the project itself. Regardless of the choice you make between these two products though, the end result will be a floor that will last for many years to come without going out of style.
