Luxury vinyl flooring is an excellent fit for any home

One of the best things about luxury vinyl flooring is that it is suitable for all homeowners. It is the right floor covering whether you think remodeling is a fun pastime or a chore that must be done. It will serve you well if you like your privacy or if you’re an ardent entertainer. And it is ideal for both quiet singles and large, raucous families. Wards Discount Carpet in Sandy, Utah, offers discount prices on luxury vinyl flooring to make it easier for everyone to improve their floors.

Luxury vinyl plank flooring

Luxury vinyl plank, or LVP, is a man-made composite material that mimics hardwood flooring. Planks are thicker and more rigid than standard wood-look sheet vinyl. That means the design layer can be more deeply embossed during the digital imaging process. Hence, planks more closely duplicate the grains and textures of various wood species than sheets. The transparent wear layer protects the wood image. A brand with a wear layer thickness of at least 20-mil is best. Installation is easy since floating floors that are not attached to a subfloor are the norm.

Luxury vinyl tile flooring

Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT, mimics tile flooring as well as hardwood flooring. Hardwood tile is incredibly trendy at this time.
Natural stone designs range from upscale marble to rustic slate. Like LVP, LVT is a multi-layer, durable flooring that is scratch and stain-resistant. The best brands have a lifespan of 25 years or more. When tiles and planks are installed, existing hard surface flooring may not need to be removed. Some tile brands are glued to the subfloor, and some can be installed with grout for a more authentic look.

Waterproof flooring

The highest quality luxury vinyl brands, ideal for active households and homes with pets, are waterproof. Specifically, LVP and LVT have a wood-plastic composite or a stone plastic composite core repel water. The main component in WPC is wood fiber, while SPC is primarily limestone. Even if the flooring is wet for an extended period, it won't swell, warp, or buckle. Further, many flooring manufacturers possess patented technology that makes these formidable brands virtually impossible to damage.
