Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Are you looking to add the looks of wood and stone to your home but are concerned with durability? Then luxury vinyl flooring (or LVT flooring)may be your best option. Luxury vinyl offers realistic wood and stone looks, but it is much stronger and more durable. Let’s take a close look at luxury vinyl flooring:
How is Luxury Vinyl Made?
Like we mentioned before, luxury vinyl flooring is specially-made to look like real wood or stone. Because of advancements in digital printing, these looks are truly authentic, so much so that it’s difficult to discern between luxury vinyl and its natural counterparts. Many luxury vinyl flooring options even have authentic surface textures. In fact, those that feature registered embossed technology have textures that follow the wood or stone grains.
For real wood looks, be sure to take a look at vinyl plank flooring. It is available in actual planks that are very similar to real wood planks. Vinyl tile flooring is a better option if you want the natural looks of stone.
Types of Luxury Vinyl
There are a few different types of luxury vinyl flooring options, including vinyl tile flooring and vinyl plank flooring. Vinyl tile is an alternative to ceramic and porcelain tile, while vinyl plank is an alternative to hardwood and laminate. We also offer other vinyl options including sheet vinyl, WPC, and rigid core floors.
Is Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
Many luxury vinyl options feature incredible resistance to moisture, while others are completely waterproof. Waterproof flooring has 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 ever reaching the subfloor, where it can promote the growth of mold and mildew. Waterproof luxury vinyl floors can be installed anywhere in your home. They are the ideal option for homeowners who have children and pets that run all over the home.
Where can you Install Luxury Vinyl?
Because of its engineered construction, luxury vinyl flooring certainly offers high-end performance. It will, for example, resist spills and scratches without any special treatments, and the planks and tiles will also remain strong against heavy foot traffic. More importantly, luxury vinyl is totally waterproof. Many options, including COREtec Plus, even have waterproof cores for extreme durability. Luxury vinyl flooring can therefore be installed anywhere in the home. The most common places include kitchens and bathrooms. But, they also feature looks that are authentic enough to be installed in living rooms and bedrooms.
