Luxury vinyl flooring is a resilient flooring product that is manufactured to look like stone or wood.

This product is much more durable and is great for homes with pets and kids. This floor is available in tiles and planks that are either glued down or click together much like laminate flooring.

Types of Luxury Vinyl
Luxury vinyl is most often available in planks and tiles. Planks mimic the look and size of hardwood and tiles mimic the look and size of tile.

Most luxury vinyl flooring carries commercial warranties and is extremely durable. Under normal wear and tear these floors are scratch, stain, dent and scuff resistant.

Water Resistant
Luxury vinyl floors are inherently water resistant and are impervious to wet spills that occur from the surface.

Composition
Luxury vinyl floors can be 100% vinyl composite or a vinyl/ limestone composite mixture. There are typically four layers to this product. First a top layer that helps prevent against scratching, a second a clear layer that protects against rips and tears, third is the image layer (picture of wood or stone) and fourth the backing layer. The backing layer is the “meat” of the product giving it structure and stability.

Luxury vinyl is easy to clean. Sweep regularly and damp mop as needed. Luxury vinyl is hypoallergenic and will not harbor dust mites, bacteria and allergens. This makes it a great choice for homes with children and pets.
