Luxury vinyl flooring can be installed in every room of the home. Luxury vinyl planks look like hardwood, while luxury vinyl tile looks like hardwood, stone, or ceramic. Both LVP and LVT are great alternatives to the natural materials they mimic. The flooring resists scratches and stains, and it does not swell when wet. Brands designed for pet owners are available. Absolute Floor Designs, located in Bridgeport, Connecticut, offers the most trendy vinyl flooring styles.
WPC and SPC flooring
Perhaps the most compelling reason to choose luxury vinyl is its ability to repel water. Most waterproof brands have a wood-plastic composite or a stone plastic composite core. While both WPC and SPC vinyl flooring is very durable, SPC brands are virtually indestructible. WPC brands contain a foaming agent, so they are somewhat softer underfoot. The main component in WPC flooring is wood pulp, while SPC flooring has limestone.
In addition to a core layer, LVP and LVT have a backing layer and a high-tech image layer protected by a wear layer. Since the image becomes damaged when the transparent wear layer is worn, it's wise to choose a product that has a thick top layer. A 20+ mil wear layer offers maximum durability. This well-constructed flooring can be wet for long periods without sustaining damage. A lifetime warranty often backs high-quality products.
