Luxury Vinyl Basics

Luxury Vinyl is a recent innovation in floor coverings. These products are manufactured in plank and tile formats, creating the look of ceramic tile, natural stone and hardwood, but with some important benefits – easy installation, and affordability.

Today’s luxury vinyl flooring is a great option for many different rooms and situations. The product is known for its versatility and durability, a result of the way in which it’s manufactured. Most sheet vinyl currently on the market is made up of four layers, each of which adds something to the overall properties of the product. The layers include a backing material; a central, core layer; a decorative layer; and a final layer to prevent wear and tear to the flooring.

Luxury vinyl flooring can be a great choice:

  • Kid and pet friendly – very resistant to scratches and dents.
  • Quieter than most hard surface flooring
  • Softer underfoot – easier on your joints
  • Easy to maintain
  • Extremely moisture and stain resistant
  • Realistic wood, tile and stone looks
  • Easier installation than ceramic, stone, or hardwood
