What You Need to Know about Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Tough, durable and waterproof, luxury vinyl flooring (also known as LVT flooring) is the shape-shifter of flooring. Luxury vinyl looks and feels like real wood or stone, but it offers premium performance.
Durability is largely dependent on the wear layer. The wear layer of vinyl is a clear plastic film applied to the top of the flooring. The thicker the wear layer the longer lasting the flooring. Also, many luxury vinyl floors have waterproof cores, so they can handle moisture. Luxury vinyl’s durability extends to withstand heat, moisture, resistant to high-traffic areas, mold, and mildew, making it the perfect option for bathroom and kitchen flooring.

Advantages of Luxury Vinyl
Luxury vinyl flooring features a special design layer, so it looks exactly like real wood or stone. Also, the surface can be textured as well. For wood looks, choose vinyl plank, and for stone looks, choose vinyl tile.
What's great about luxury vinyl is that it can withstand moisture much better than hardwood and laminate. Certain options, including COREtec Plus and Invincible H2O, are considered waterproof, so they can be installed anywhere in the home.
Given its composite construction, luxury vinyl flooring can handle everyday wear and tear without scratching or scuffing. Luxury vinyl never needs to be finished or treated.
