What is Vinyl Flooring? 

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP) are the two top choices for most home owners today. Vinyl has come a long way since it was first introduced into the flooring market. What used to be a thin sheet of material now comes in a variety of styles to choose from. Here are just a few reasons why luxury vinyl may be the right option for your home.

What is Vinyl Flooring Made of?

Luxury vinyl is assembled from multiple layers of material and most commonly has a rigid core. Luxury vinyl is usually associated as a resilient flooring option because of its minor cushioned feel underfoot and its capability of bouncing back to its shape after being compressed. This is just one feature that sets luxury vinyl apart from the rest.

Durability of Vinyl Flooring

The strength of luxury vinyl depends on its wear layer. Usually the wear layer of luxury vinyl is a clear plastic film applied to the surface of the product. The thicker the film the more durable the floor is. Luxury vinyl’s durability ranges to withstand heat, moisture, and heavy traffic. It even resists mold and mildew, making it great for people with allergies and it even means you can install it in bathrooms and kitchens.

Vinyl also comes in a collection of styles, patterns, and colors to match your home’s personality. From luxury vinyl planks made to look like hardwood to luxury vinyl tiles that mimic ceramic tile, the possibilities are nearly endless in the world of luxury vinyl.
