Composition

High tech 3D printing technology is used to create luxury vinyl flooring that looks like wood planks or ceramic and stone tile. This synthetic material is usually composed of four layers. The backing layer protects the subfloor and provides cushioning. The core layer provides structure and stability. The clear wear layer on top protects the design layer. Water does not affect the structure of luxury vinyl flooring. Since it won’t swell or contract, floors won’t warp or buckle when covered with water. While all vinyl repels water, durability varies among brands. Choose flooring that features a wear layer of 10-mil or higher to get the most durable product.

Benefits

Luxury vinyl combines a sophisticated look with practical performance and convenient installation. Most flooring fits together in tongue and groove fashion. No glue is needed to install the floor since it floats above the subfloor instead of being attached to it. The floor can even be taken apart, if needed, to clean up a flooded basement. Child- and pet-friendly luxury vinyl satisfies aesthetic needs too. It’s the go-to product if a wood look is desired in a bathroom. The flooring can be placed anywhere in the home, and it is less expensive than the natural materials it mimics. It’s resistant to scratches, stains, and indentations.
