Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide
Vinyl has made a lot of changes since it was first introduced to the flooring market. What once only came in sheet options is now available in planks and tiles. Floor Covering Brokers Carpet One Floor & Home in Traverse City, MI is your one stop shop when it comes to finding the perfect luxury vinyl floor for your home. We have professionally trained staff in our showroom to help you select the perfect luxury vinyl floor for your home. Here are some reasons why luxury vinyl may be the right option for your home.
Luxury Vinyl is a great alternative to natural stone and hardwood for several reasons. In addition to being more durable, it is also sound absorbing, easier to install, easier to clean, and it is warmer to the touch. Luxury vinyl planks look just like real hardwood and luxury vinyl tiles can look like stone or ceramic, so you no longer have to sacrifice looks for functionality.
What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Made of?
Luxury vinyl is made from multiple layers and features a rigid core. Luxury vinyl is a resilient flooring option due to its slight cushioned feel underfoot and its ability to retain its shape after impact from foot traffic. The wear layer of luxury vinyl is a clear plastic film applied to the surface of the product that also determines how durable the floor is. Luxury vinyl’s durability can withstand heat, moisture, and heavy traffic and it is also resistant to mold and mildew, making it great for homes with people with allergies. You can even install this flooring product in bathrooms and kitchens as most luxury vinyl is made to be water resistant. You can also find waterproof choices as well.
Types of Luxury Vinyl
There are a few different types of luxury vinyl flooring options, including vinyl tile flooring and vinyl plank flooring. Vinyl tile is an alternative to ceramic and porcelain tile, while vinyl plank is an alternative to hardwood and laminate. There are also newer, more durable options like WPC and rigid core luxury vinyl, which feature waterproof qualities.
Is luxury Vinyl Waterproof?
Most luxury vinyl floors are made with some sort of resistance to moisture, and then there are others that are 100% waterproof. Most waterproof luxury vinyl floors are WPC (wood plastic composite), which feature a core made of materials that does not absorb or trap moisture. These floors also feature a watertight seal on the surface so moisture does not seep through the gaps between the planks. Waterproof flooring allows you to have high-end looking floors installed anywhere in your home without you having to worry about unwanted damaged caused by moisture.
