Luxury Vinyl Tile, also referred to as LVT, EVP (engineered vinyl plank) or vinyl composite core flooring (VCC) is a highly durable, waterproof, kid proof and even pet proof flooring product that is rapidly gaining popularity for both homeowners and commercial flooring applications. LVT can provide some of the highest noise reduction ratings in flooring and offer a stylish alternative to natural wood flooring.

LVT is developed to nearly perfectly replicate the look, color and feel of high-end wood flooring, stone and ceramic tile with improved performance and considerably lower costs. The manufacturing process used to produce luxury vinyl tile creates all of the surface textures that were previously only available in solid hardwood or engineered wood floors. Surface designs such as distressed wood, stone textures, handscraped and even wood grain patterns become so realistic that it can only be referred to as a luxury vinyl product for floors. LVT can give you the look and actual feel of even bamboo floors with durability and cost savings not previously available in flooring.

Luxury vinyl tile should never be confused with either traditional vinyl flooring or laminate flooring. Luxury vinyl tile is typically constructed using a polyvinyl chloride (PVC), which results in a firm yet elastic construction that is perfectly suited to flooring. LVT material is extremely “resilient” because it is able to compress and expand with contact and temperature variations, rather than crack.

The biggest difference between laminate floors and luxury vinyl tile is the ability of LVT to withstand moisture. We carry LVT flooring that can be considered 100% waterproof. Laminate flooring typically can’t make that claim. So LVT flooring is not only a better appearing flooring material, it can also hold up under extreme conditions, making it great for high traffic areas, kitchens, bathrooms and households with pets.

Though laminate floors can have a lower front end cost, luxury vinyl tile can last from 15 to 30+ years, depending on the brand and product being installed. If you plan to be in your home or business for a longer period of time, or are more concerned with resale value, you should consider LVT as a better flooring material for both situations.

Luxury Vinyl Tile has come a long way since the days of giant rolls of vinyl flooring. LVT flooring has grown with style and technology over the years that has transformed it into a quality, durable flooring product that delivers numerous color and pattern options. Luxury vinyl tile is now as stylish and plentiful as it is affordable and realistic.

Types of LVT Floors

There are several types of vinyl floors, which include luxury vinyl tile, vinyl sheet, as well as LVT planks, tiles and modulars. Luxury vinyl tile floors offer flexibility of install applications with styles, colors and textures that mirror the look of stone, slate and wood.

LVT Installation Options

Due to the composite construction of luxury vinyl tile, it handles moisture and high-traffic applications extremely well. Easy to install, LVT flooring not only looks like real wood or stone flooring, it can be used in virtually all flooring environments. From kitchens to bathrooms and even basements or commercial flooring applications, it is becoming a popular choice for homeowners and contractors alike.

Construction

LVT wood flooring is manufactured by combining multiple floor components together around a high density core layer and a top layer made of colored and textured vinyl that appears like real wood, stone or even marble. Luxury vinyl tile is produced in planks that come in varying widths and lengths, similar to traditional wood flooring. The result of today’s advancements in LVT floors are a deceptively similar look and feel to natural wood flooring.
