What is luxury vinyl flooring?

Are you looking for floors that have style and functionality? Do you want it to last for an extended period? Want a stunning appearance? Then look no further than luxury vinyl flooring.


Luxury vinyl flooring comes in two types, Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) and Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT). Both use a three-dimensional photograph for the design layer of the flooring. This 3D image has depth to it, in addition to the look. The photography is astounding in its detail. It can duplicate stone, wood, tile, and brick.


The luxury vinyl is also waterproof, thanks to the material of PVC. PVC is a commonly used material in construction, and it is entirely waterproof. So you can expose the core layer to water for extended periods, and it will not ripple, warp, or peel.


The core layer is designed by pressing several layers of vinyl together into an 8-millimeter thickness. This is an average thickness of vinyl, but if you want thicker, then speak to our associates. You can get up to 20- millimeters in thickness with your vinyl flooring, which will add to the floor's lifespan. It is placed on a backing layer, and it has a top layer that is thick enough to handle scratches, scuffs, spills, and stains.
