You are looking for flooring that has style
and functionality all in one? Something that you can use in any room in your
home? Luxury vinyl may be for you. There is no place that it can’t go and bring
you a quality look and feel to your home.
Vinyl plank flooring comes in planks. That
means it has composite plastic wood at its core. Due to today’s imaging and
technology, it looks and feels just like the wood it represents. Its core is
waterproof, so extended periods of exposure to water won’t warp, curl, or
damage the vinyl. It is ideal for basements, where the dampness may be a little
higher than usual.
Luxury vinyl also
comes in tile. This stone composite plastic is also waterproof. It can look and
feel just like tile, from your kitchen to your bathroom. LVT flooring resembles
the stonework or ceramic that it mimics, so you can't tell the difference
LVF has a multilayer construction to it.
That means that it has several benefits. First, it has several layers that are
pressed together. The protective top layer is pressed over the decorative layer;
some manufacturers put an additional wear-and-tear layer on top of the top
layer! This prolongs the life of the vinyl. Most LVP and LVT are usually 8
millimeters thick. However, you can get a longer life if you have that increased
to 20-millimeters thick. The core layer resists dents, scratches, and scuffs
