At Americarpets of Riverdale, we can answer that question. Luxury vinyl has proven to be one of the most durable floors on the market. It resists scratches, stains, spills, and scuffs. Yet, it retains its excellent appearance.

Durability

Most luxury vinyl comes with a 25-30 year warranty. It has been proven to be an excellent choice for bathrooms and kitchens, and laundry rooms. Rugged and waterproof, you’ll find that it can go into any room in your home.

Characteristics

Luxury vinyl flooring has two formats: planks and tiles. Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) are the same material. They are attractive, easy to maintain, and very durable. For maintenance, all you need is light sweeping or light mopping to keep them clean. The core of the flooring is usually 8 millimeters thick, but if you want longer-lasting flooring, then opt for 20 millimeters. This will add to the lifespan of the floor. The top layer of LVF is a thick layer that resists scratches and scuff marks.

Waterproof

The vinyl is also waterproof due to its primary construction material, PVC. PVC is a standard construction material that is naturally waterproof. It is used everywhere in construction these days. So luxury vinyl’s nature is a guarantee against water damage.

Appearance

The imaging layer, or design layer, of luxury vinyl is, thanks to the imaging technology of today, able to mimic any image. LVP mimics any wood look, from walnut to cherry, oak to ash. With LVT, it can mimic any stone, from ceramic to brickwork, granite to slate. Of course, it can mimic wood-look as well. So rest assured, you have a world of options to choose from when thinking about what you want your floors to look like.
