How long can I expect luxury vinyl flooring to last?
You can expect your luxury vinyl to last over 20 years, depending on quality and care.
Luxury vinyl is a premium yet very budget-friendly product. The product's vibrant, realistic images of wood, stone, and tile are cut into two forms.
One form is a luxury vinyl plank, where the material is cut into strips and mounted on boards. It is used mainly to mimic hardwood, but some also use it for stone slab looks.
The other is the square, tile-sized piece. It's often used to replicate stone and tile looks but is also sometimes used to imitate wood look tile.
These floors have depth and dimension. Textures are available, including brushed, hand-scraped, distressed, and embossed-in-register.
We carry vinyl plank (sometimes referred to as LVP) and squares. They all come from brands like Mohawk, Pergo Extreme, and more.
The most value per decorating dollar
This is a completely waterproof material. It can handle everything from a minor spill to the most extensive leak.
It's ultra-durable and can handle kids, pets, and the heaviest foot traffic. In addition, it's layered, making it five times thicker than the original product.
Also, a top transparent wear layer protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents. It even helps keep spills from absorbing.
It just takes regular sweeping and periodic mopping to keep your luxury vinyl tile or plank looking great. Just be sure to use a manufacturer-approved cleaner.
Avoid wax, shine-promoting products that can dull the floor. Stains on your tile pieces (LVT) or plank can be removed easily, often with just a baking soda and water paste.
