Luxury vinyl is a four-layer man-made flooring material that is a practical alternative to flooring made of natural materials. Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) mimics many different wood species, and wood-look luxury vinyl tile is available, too. All-Pro Floors is a luxury vinyl flooring store in Arlington, Texas, that offers a great assortment of wood-look planks and tiles.
The core layer, which is protected by the backing layer, is the thickest of the four layers that make up a plank or tile. Flooring with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core is waterproof. Even standing water does not damage the flooring. The best LVP brands have a 20+ mil transparent wear layer to protect the wood image layer.
The highest quality luxury vinyl flooring uses embossed in register, or EIR, technology to capture the most authentic wood look. Added texture and depth are matched to the wood grain to produce flooring that looks and feels like wood. The textured floor is comfortable to walk on, and it offers increased traction and enhanced slip resistance.
Most plank vinyl floors float above the subfloor. The planks click and lock together, so they don't need to be attached to the subfloor. Underlayment is placed beneath the planks to hide minor subfloor imperfections and enhance the flooring's performance. A moisture barrier can be included if needed. Glue-down products that do not need underlayment are also available.
