Luxury vinyl is an 'install it anywhere' type of flooring. This tough, pet-friendly floor covering stands up to heavy foot traffic, and it repels stains, abrasion, and water. Luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring are hard to damage and easy to maintain. All-Pro Floors in Arlington, TX, has a large selection of LVP, which mimics hardwood, and LVT, which looks like hardwood, stone, or ceramic. Top companies like Armstrong and USFloors manufacture the flooring.
While water-resistant flooring requires immediate cleanup, luxury vinyl can remain wet for an extended period without changing structurally. Just mop up the water, and the floor is as good as new. In general, LVP and LVT with a wood-plastic composite or a stone plastic composite core are waterproof. Glue-down planks and tiles are available, but most brands are designed for floating floor installation. Thus, the flooring can easily be removed if necessary.
Design layer and more
The core layer is supported by a backing layer and topped by a high-tech image layer. The wear layer determines the lifespan of this man-made, four-layer flooring. The transparent surface layer protects the wood or tile image, and when it is worn down, the floor needs to be replaced. The highest quality brands have a 20+ mil wear layer, and some products have an additional coating for extra protection. Good quality underlayment enhances floor performance.
