SPC is considered a subtype of luxury vinyl plank flooring. Like LVP, SPC comes in planks of various thicknesses, colors, and styles. It can be click-locked or glued-down and used in all areas.
The national average cost range for installing SPC is $1,200 to $2,000, with most people paying around $1,700 for 200 sq.ft. of installed 20 mil SPC with an imprinted wood-grain pattern. This project’s low cost is $1,000 to install 200 sq.ft. of 15 mil SPC with a printed pattern. The high cost is $2,600 for 200 sq.ft. of installed 40 mil SPC with an exotic wood-grain pattern.
Underlayment: Underlayments are not recommended for SPC flooring, except for a vapor barrier in wet areas.
Radiant heating. You can install your SPC over radiant floor heating. The cost of radiant heating is $10 to $25 a sq.ft.
Vinyl vapor barrier: If you install your SPC in a damp area, you may want to use a vapor barrier to eliminate moisture. This costs $100 to $150.
Smoother transitions: When installing this material in a room abutting another space with different flooring, you may want to use a transition strip called a threshold. The cost of this material is $5 to $30 each.
Pets stain and scratch: SPC is a good material to use in homes with pets. It is not impacted by waste and does not stain or scratch.
Sustainability: SPC is not considered sustainable flooring because it is made of plastic and cannot be recycled.
Subfloor: Click-lock SPC should be installed over a smooth and level subfloor. However, glue-down SPC can be installed over a subfloor
