Luxury vinyl plank flooring has an attractive wood look

 
Luxury vinyl plank, or LVP, is a practical and less costly alternative to hardwood plank flooring. Like all vinyl flooring, LVP does a good job of repelling water. Also, this attractive flooring resists scratches, stains, dents, and general daily wear and tear. Stick and Stone Flooring is a luxury vinyl flooring retailer in The Villages in Wildwood and Lady Lake, Florida. We offer a selection of LVP in many wood species, colors, and textures.
 

Composition

 
Luxury vinyl flooring is thicker than standard vinyl flooring, and therefore, deep embossing with digital printing technology is possible. The deeper the embossing, the more realistic the wood look. The multi-layer planks have a backing and core layer under the design layer. If an LVP brand has a wood plastic composite (WPC) or stone plastic composite (SPC) core, it is waterproof. Standing water will not damage the floor. A transparent wear layer protects the design layer. A 20 mil wear layer is ideal for all residential applications. The most durable brands come with an additional protective coating on top of the wear layer.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Installation

 
While solid hardwood planks are nailed to a wood subfloor, thin and flexible LVP flooring is designed to float above the subfloor. Planks connect with a click and lock design, so floors can be installed over existing hard surface flooring as well as radiant heat systems. High-density foam underlayment adds cushioning underfoot as well as sound and thermal insulation. It's important to add vapor barrier underlayment when installing planks on a concrete slab where moisture is always present. Keep in mind that it is easy to replace a plank that becomes damaged in future years, which adds to the floor’s lifespan.
 

Pet-friendly brands

 
The toughest LVP brands are designed with pets in mind, and these brands are perfect for active households too. Adura Max by Mannington features an innovative thick and rigid HydroLoc waterproof core that stands up well to pet accidents as well as spilled water bowls. Because of ScratchResist, a premium scratch resistant surface protector, pet claws do not damage the floor. COREtec also offers pet-friendly, 100% waterproof LVP brands that feature patented WPC core technology and extra thick wear layers that resist scratches.
