Take advantage of the many benefits of luxury vinyl flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring is the newest and fastest-growing flooring category. Everyone loves the look of hard-surface floors. Wood, for example, is beautiful and comfortable, conveying a natural, easy luxury. Tile and stone floors have the same appeal.
Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and vinyl plank (LVP) flooring have evolved into sophisticated products that high-end clients are choosing over natural wood and tile. Because the new products look so similar to the natural surfaces they mimic they perform extremely well and cost less.
Luxury vinyl is a good choice for your family and the environment
Today’s consumers are increasingly interested in eco-friendly flooring. The new LVT and LVP flooring products address these concerns in a number of ways. First, by using virgin vinyl that doesn’t release harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC). Second, luxury vinyl can be installed using adhesives without fumes, and some can be installed without any adhesive at all. Finally, the products are durable and have a timeless look so they’ll last for decades and not end up in a landfill as quickly.
The difference and performance of luxury vinyl are larger here than in any other flooring category. The way it is manufactured results in a range of quality from terrible to amazing. The big box stores will take the lowest grade 6 mil (amount of protective finish) product and choose a deceptive name like LifeProof. That same product will have warranty exclusions from damage caused by abuse, flooding, spills, scratches, abrasive scouring pads, scuffing, staining, construction or installation.
The minimum amount of finish that we sell is 20 mil, which is 333% more protection than the 6 mils. This provides much stronger resistance to any damages that may result from years of daily use. Use our 10 Keys to Success to ensure your investment in new luxury vinyl flooring is protected.
