Is luxury vinyl flooring durable?
High-quality luxury vinyl is a sophisticated flooring that is stain and abrasion-resistant as well as waterproof. So, yes, this high-tech synthetic flooring is durable. In addition, many brands are backed by a 25-year warranty. Vogel's Carpets in Seattle, Washington, makes it easy to choose the luxury vinyl product that is perfect for your home. We offer an online catalog and room visualizer, and we can bring samples when we come to your home for the flooring measurement.
Four layers are bonded together to form a luxury vinyl plank or a luxury vinyl tile. In addition to the backing and core layers, LVP includes an image layer that mimics various hardwood species. LVT imitates wood, ceramic, and stones like slate, granite, and marble. The transparent wear layer that protects the image layer from daily wear and tear determines the durability of a product. The best LVP and LVT have a tough 20-mil surface layer.
Methods of installation
Flooring design varies according to the installation method. Glue-down brands are fastened to the subfloor with an adhesive. Popular floating floor LVP and LVT click and locks together so installers can construct a floor that needs no glue to keep it in place. Floating floors can be installed above most existing hard surface flooring. Semi-permanent loose lay luxury vinyl flooring butts together. The heavy planks and tiles have a special backing that grips the floor.
