Many people choose luxury vinyl flooring, an affordable option that offers long-lasting performance, durability, and style. It's an option that fits every budget and décor. When we install luxury vinyl flooring, homeowners have a floor that is extremely resistant to stains, scratches, and dents.
Luxury vinyl tile and planks replicate the beauty of wood, travertine, marble, or slate. Most notably, vinyl captures the true warmth and comfortability of quality flooring. These particular type of luxury vinyl planks and tiles have little in common with other sheet vinyl products. This popular option of vinyl is causing a lot of excitement in the floor covering world. Designers, architects, retailers, manufacturers, and consumers are drawn to the performance of luxury vinyl.
The process used in the manufacturing of luxury vinyl tiles and planks is quite different than the process used in the production of sheet vinyl flooring. Completely different results occur between the two. Luxury vinyl tiles and planks are made with a combination of natural material, high-resolution photography and advanced manufacturing processes. Sheet flooring is more commonly used in residential applications such as bathrooms and kitchens, and typically contains a higher percentage of vinyl resins.
The successful combination of performance and aesthetics has dramatically increased the residential demand for LVT and LVP, even though this concept was initiated to fill some commercial needs.
The foundation of the luxury vinyl flooring system is based on the ability to replicate real stones and hardwoods with the use of advanced photographic technologies. Four distinct layers produce a final product: An aluminum or oxide top layer, a layer of photographic film, a layer of color vinyl, and a backing of resilient vinyl are fused together.
