The professionals at Westvalley Carpet & Flooring can answer that. We can confidently say that luxury vinyl flooring is one of the most durable products on the market for your Calgary home. It is resistant to scuffs, scratches, nicks, and dents. Its appearance is top rate, and it is one of the most beautiful types of flooring to get.
A little research will show you that luxury vinyl comes with 25-30 year warranties on their floors. So it is an ideal product for your kitchen or bath. It is not only highly durable but also waterproof, which makes it perfect for the rest of your home’s rooms.
Vinyl flooring characteristics
Luxury vinyl comes in two types: planks and tiles. The luxury vinyl planks (LVP) and the luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are both vinyl in nature and come from the same material. You will find LVP and LVT to both be very attractive, easy to clean, and able to stand up to high amounts of traffic. For maintenance, all you need is a light sweeping once a day. The core layer of the LVP and LVT is 8 millimeters thick; however, if you want a longer-lasting floor, you can opt for 20 millimeters thickness. The thicker core will add a longer lifespan to your vinyl.
Waterproof flooring capable
As stated earlier, the luxury vinyl is waterproof, and this is due to the main construction component, PVC. PVC is a standard construction material that is naturally utterly resistant to water. PVC is used everywhere in construction these days, so you know it is a reliable material. So LVF has a natural resistance to water.
The imaging layer, also known as the design layer, of luxury vinyl can duplicate any image. So wood-look LVP can look like cherry, oak, maple, or ash. Or the LVT can look like any stone, ceramic, granite, brickwork, or slate. Of course, it can mimic wood-look as well. So be assured; your floor will look fabulous!
