For years vinyl flooring was associated with your grandmother’s home, and not in a good way!
Today’s vinyl flooring has come a long way since the 20th century. Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP) and Tile (LVT) flooring offers the richness and texture of more expensive materials such as real wood planks and natural stone tile, all with the maintenance ease of vinyl floors.
Vinyl floors can look so realistic that often it is hard to distinguish real wood floors from vinyl wood looks. Advanced digital technology enables striking floor visuals that could not be achieved with manufacturing processes of the past. The best looking floors have embossed surfaces that add texture and result in extremely realistic finishes. “In Register Embossing” is an additional step where texturing actually follows the patterns in the image, used to match grain or give the surface the ultimate authentic look and feel.
LVP and LVT are very durable floors while being soft underfoot at the same time. Vinyl floors maintain a comfortable temperature in all seasons. The biggest advantage of vinyl flooring is the fact that it is 100 percent waterproof, kid proof, and pet proof. Because LVP and LVT are made with a protective layer that resists scratches, dents, and stains from family pets, it is the ideal flooring solution for spaces such as basements, kitchens, playrooms, and children’s bedrooms.
There is little to no upkeep when it comes to LVP flooring. A quick mop or wipe of the surface is sufficient regardless of the mess. Plus, LVP flooring is resistant to stains, which makes this the perfect flooring choice for a busy family’s lifestyle.
LVP flooring has an average 25-30 year lifespan and can withstand the heavy demand of a high traffic room or commercial space.
LVT is an extremely cost-effective option for flooring compared to natural wood or tile floor. Because vinyl floors never have to be resealed or refinished, it will cost less to maintain over its lifetime.
