Luxury vinyl plank and tile facts for you
Luxury vinyl plank and tile are usually constructed of no less than four layers, and sometimes more, depending on the manufacturer and additional characteristics. They commonly consist of backing, core, visual, and wear layers, with each offering a specific attribute and benefit for your floors.
The wear layer is responsible for protecting you from scratches, scuffs, stains, and fading and generally lasts about 20 years. When a 100% vinyl, wood plastic composite, or stone plastic composite is chosen, the core layer offers complete protection from water damage, making it a perfect choice for basements, laundry rooms, or any other space where this protection is necessary.
Some manufacturers offer an attached underlayment for added resilience, warmth, and noise suppression, offering an all-in-one experience perfect for many areas. To find out even more about these floor coverings, be sure to visit us soon.
