With 7-inch planks, these floors provide the traditional, wide plank look that is currently on-trend with today’s styles.

So how much can you expect to pay for a Titan Rigid Core vinyl? These floors won’t break the bank, and will run you somewhere around $3/sf. If you want the look of hardwood but are on a budget, Titan Rigid Core is a good option to consider.
