The short answer to this question is that these materials differ most in appearance while sharing nearly all other characteristics. You'll find excellent durability, beauty, and functionality in all luxury vinyl, and a design that will perfectly match your Calgary home.
Vinyl plank flooring and more
Luxury vinyl plank flooring is a fantastic product that looks just like real wood flooring. You'll note the beautiful grain patterns and textures, as well as the rustic, earthy colors that can create both décor matching beauty and perfect ambiance.
On the other hand, luxury vinyl tile, or LVT flooring, brings in the appearance of real stone, such as marble, granite, or quartz, for a stunning elegance that fits in so well. Add it to entryways, kitchens, bathrooms, or anywhere this timeless touch will be welcomed.
These materials feature the same layered construction, complete with a backing, core, design, and wear layer. The wear layer is responsible for protecting your floors against stains, scratches, and gouges that could mar its beautiful appearance.
The wear layer and the flooring as a whole are available in a variety of thicknesses, which means you can customize your level of protection. You'll also find a lifespan that can reach 30 years, based on the options you choose.
If you'd like to floor an area such as a basement, laundry room, or bathroom, be sure to ask about this material's waterproof features. With a perfect core material, you'll be completely protected against water damage for as long as your flooring is in place.
