Is luxury vinyl flooring durable?
Four-layer luxury vinyl plank is synthetic flooring that is designed to mimic hardwood planks. LVP is available in a wide variety of domestic and exotic wood species, finishes, and textures. Luxury vinyl tile imitates ceramic and stone flooring. Marble, slate, travertine, and granite LVT brands are popular. You can find high-quality luxury vinyl flooring from top companies like Congoleum and Mohawk at Brough Carpets in Lapeer, Michigan. Our flooring specialists are always happy to assist you.
LVP and LVT are composed of a backing, core, image, and wear layer. The wear layer protects the high-tech wood, stone, or ceramic image layer from typical daily wear and tear as well as staining and abrasion. Once this transparent surface layer is worn down, the image becomes damaged, so the flooring must be replaced. Therefore, flooring that has a thick wear layer is likely to have a long lifespan. Look for LVP and LVT that have at least a 20-mil surface coating.
The core layer also helps to determine the durability of luxury vinyl flooring. Brands that include a wood composite core or a stone composite core repel water. WPC flooring consists of a foaming agent, which makes it somewhat softer underfoot. But SPC flooring is almost indestructible and thus appropriate for commercial as well as residential applications. Waterproof luxury vinyl can be depended upon to withstand moisture for long periods.
