Why Choose Luxury Vinyl Flooring

Luxury Vinyl Tile, also known as LVT or LVP, is a product that looks like ceramic tile, stone, or wood.  With today’s technology, not only does it look like other types of floor, but also has texture that feel like the other surfaces such as weathered stones or hand-scraped hardwoods.

Features & Benefits of Luxury Vinyl

  • Versatile Installation
    Can be installed above, on or below grade over concrete or suspended wood.
  • 100% Water Resistant
    Luxury Vinyl is one of the best solutions for bathrooms, mud rooms and kitchens with higher moisture contact is likely.
  • Warmer on the feet
    Proven to be significantly warmer than natural stone flooring materials.
  • Comfort
    Softness and resiliency underfoot compared to hardwood or stone materials.

Vinyl Construction

LVT was originally known as “hot pressed tile” which is a good indicator of how it is made. LVT is made of several layers that are fused together under heat and pressure:

  • Wear Layer
    The top layer of Luxury Vinyl is referred to as the wear layer. Generally, the thicker the wear layer, the more resistant the floor will be against wear and tear. Also, the thicker the wear layer the special textures that can be added to the product.
  • Print Film Layer
    The design and color of vinyl flooring is created through a high resolution image pressed into the core layer.
  • Core
    The core of vinyl flooring is made from vinyl.  It is the core layer that creates the waterproof layer of the material.  Laminate flooring has a fiberboard core which absorbs moisure.

Vinyl Installation

Vinyl flooring is incredibly versatile allowing you to install the product almost anywhere in your home.  Some types are floating systems that “click” together and other types are glued down to the sub-surface material.
