About Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Steadily soaring in popularity, luxury vinyl flooring (sometimes referred to as LVT flooring) is progressively pushing out hardwood as the unofficial favorite of the hard-surface flooring world. With its photorealistic surface that captures looks previously only found in nature, combined with its extreme durability and ease of care, it’s not hard to understand why. Let’s learn more about this innovative and affordable flooring option.
How does luxury vinyl flooring combine natural looks with premium performance? The answer lies with its special layered construction. The top layer, or the wear layer, is super-strong, so it will resist virtually all scratches and scuffs. At the same time, the wear layer can handle spills and stains. Underneath the wear layer is a design layer, which includes a high-definition wood or stone visual.
Luxury vinyl floors also have support layers that are called core layers and base layers. These support layers provide exceptional dimensional stability to each and every vinyl plank and tile, so they will rarely crack or break under external pressure. Some luxury vinyl options, including our exclusive Invincible H2O, have waterproof core layers, so they are considered 100% waterproof.
Where Can Luxury Vinyl Flooring Be Installed?
You can install luxury vinyl floors throughout your home like in living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens and more. Since luxury vinyl flooring features authentic, natural looks it’ll be hard for your guests to tell the difference. In places around your home that see a lot of traffic or moisture, however, we do recommend choosing a waterproof option. Other places you can install luxury vinyl are basements, entryways, and even your hallways.
What Are the Different Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
There are a couple of different types of luxury vinyl flooring options, including luxury vinyl tile flooring and luxury vinyl plank flooring. Luxury vinyl planks and tiles are great for replicating authentic natural flooring looks.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
Most luxury vinyl floors feature some level of moisture resistance, but we offer many options that are completely waterproof. Waterproof flooring has a watertight surface and a strong waterproof core that prevents the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. This core also stops moisture from reaching the subfloor, and makes wiping up spills easy. Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is the perfect option if you have pets and children in your home. These floors are built to handle everyday accidents and even the toughest challenges.
