Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide
Vinyl flooring is not the same as it used to be. No longer are you limited to just sheet vinyl, but now you can choose from planks and tiles as well. Now referred to as luxury vinyl, you can get durable flooring that also looks incredible. Luxury vinyl has a different kind of construction making it both functional and good looking at the same time. At Cluff Carpet One Floor & Home in Waterford, CT, we love to stay on top of trends and luxury vinyl flooring is sticking around for a while.
Luxury vinyl comes in an array of styles, patterns, and colors to match the look of your home. You can choose from wood or stone look floors that complement the style of your home. This budget-friendly product is sure to make an impact in your home.
Types of Luxury Vinyl
Luxury vinyl gets its durability from the wear layer, which is a clear film of plastic that covers an image layer. The image layer is where luxury vinyl gets its ability to exactly replicate the look of stone or hardwood flooring. Advanced registered embossing technology even makes the floors feel like real wood or stone.
The two most popular types of luxury vinyl are vinyl plank flooring and vinyl tile flooring.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
We mentioned before that luxury vinyl flooring can resist moisture, but is it waterproof? For the most part, all luxury vinyl floors are considered moisture resistant, but there are some luxury vinyl options that are considered waterproof. Waterproof flooring has a strong waterproof core that prevents the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. This core also stops moisture from ever reaching the subfloor, making cleaning up accidental spills and messes easy.
Luxury Vinyl Installation
Luxury vinyl is easy to clean and install. There are multiple installation methods for you to choose from, each featuring their own benefits. No need for special cleaners, when a simple mop or sweep can clean your floors, giving you back time in your day.
