In short, luxury vinyl flooring is a homeowner's favorite because it's so versatile. It's not an exaggeration to say that it's ideal for every type of homeowner. For example, suppose you live alone and want long-lasting and no-maintenance flooring. And if you're part of a busy household that includes pets and children, this floor covering can withstand typical daily wear, spills, and pet accidents. House of Color in Findlay, Ohio, is the place to go for all of your flooring needs.
The core is the thickest of the four layers of a luxury vinyl plank or a luxury vinyl tile. LVP has a design layer that looks like wood, while LVT shows off a wood, stone, or ceramic design. The backing layer protects the core layer, and the design layer is shielded from scratches and stains by the wear layer. With this surface layer, thicker is better. A 20-mil wear layer is best for areas with heavy foot traffic. Premium luxury vinyl brands last up to 25 years.
The choice of installation methods expands luxury vinyl versatility. Some brands are designed to be glued to a subfloor. In contrast, loose lay brands butt together to create a semi-permanent floor that can be removed and installed a second time, if desired. Floating floor installation is most common. This type of LVP and LVT fits together like a puzzle, so it needs no attachment to the subfloor. The floor can easily float over an existing floor or cement slab.
