Luxury Vinyl Flooring Benefits
Vinyl has made a lot of changes over the past decade or so. Now instead of being limited to sheet vinyl, you can choose from vinyl planks and vinyl tiles, also known as luxury vinyl flooring. Luxury vinyl is not a new product, but with advances in manufacturing, luxury vinyl has taken on a whole new look. At Nice Carpets in Newark, we bring you only the best quality flooring products for your home.
What has made luxury vinyl so popular among homeowners is how it is made. Luxury vinyl has multiple layers that each plays an important role. There is a base for sound absorption, a core that is resistant to moisture, the image layer that can look just like real wood or stone, and of course a wear layer that determines how durable the floor is.
Types of Luxury Vinyl
When it comes to choosing the right vinyl for your home you have a few choices including luxury vinyl tiles and luxury vinyl planks. Luxury vinyl tiles are a great alternative to ceramic and porcelain tiles, where luxury vinyl planks are an alternative to hardwood and laminate. We also offer other types of luxury vinyl including WPC, SPC, and rigid core vinyl options.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Waterproof?
Most luxury vinyl options are resistant to moisture, but we also offer luxury vinyl options that are completely waterproof. Waterproof luxury vinyl floors feature a core that is made from materials that do not absorb moisture. These floors also feature a watertight seal on the surface to prevent moisture from seeping through gaps to your subfloor. These tiles and planks are also made to resist expanding and contracting due to changes in humidity, and the cores are hypoallergenic to prevent the growth of harmful allergens.
Where Can Luxury Vinyl Be Installed?
Luxury vinyl floors are great for homes with children or pets because they can resist scratching, and take a long time to show any wear and tear from use. Luxury vinyl performs best in bathrooms and kitchens because of its resiliency and waterproof qualities. The best part about luxury vinyl is its ability to mimic the look of hardwood or tile flooring, so you save on costs and don’t sacrifice looks. Other places around your home you can install luxury vinyl includes bedrooms, living rooms, and even home offices.
