Water damage and flooring
The best carpet flooring doesn't immediately absorb water. And water on a well-sealed hardwood floor can easily be removed. But both floor coverings are prone to water damage, especially from unforeseen incidents. So for peace of mind, cover your floors with waterproof luxury vinyl. This highly versatile material can be placed anywhere in your home. Vogel's Carpets & Flooring, located in Seattle, Washington, offers a large selection of trendy luxury vinyl plank and tile styles.
Practical luxury vinyl flooring mimics more costly natural materials such as favorite wood species like oak and maple and stones such as marble and slate. A plank or tile is composed of a backing, core, image, and wear layer. A brand which includes a thick wear layer to protect the image layer is most durable. A 20+ mil thickness is ideal.
Luxury vinyl planks and tiles that have a wood-plastic composite core are waterproof. A WPC core is made of recycled wood pulp and plastic composites. A foaming agent is also included to add softness underfoot. Padding, sometimes pre-attached, also adds cushioning as well as sound insulation. WPC flooring won't change structurally when exposed to standing water.
You don't need to sacrifice good looks for functionality when you choose luxury vinyl. Premium flooring brands come in many textured styles, showing the most authentic wood and stone looks. Plank texturing, created with embossing technology, can be random or Embossed in Register. With EIR flooring, embossing is aligned with the wood grain pattern.
Vogel's Carpets & Flooring install luxury vinyl planks and tiles in homes and businesses. Every project includes a complimentary in-home estimate. We also offer a rug binding service. In addition, all of our carpet styles can be made into a custom area rug that enhances your hard surface flooring.
