Luxury Vinyl Flooring in Deerfield Beach, FL
The Advantages of Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl is a relatively modern addition to the flooring world and has fast become one of the most popular choices for new homes & renovations. It’s designed to realistically mimic the look and feel of a variety of natural hardwoods, stone and tile materials. For this reason, it can be found in virtually any color or texture you can imagine.
Vinyl is a highly versatile material suited for installation in almost any room. Part of that versatility is the ease with which vinyl can be installed. Floating click and lock installations are common. Once installed, vinyl resists scratches, dents & stains. Some products are even waterproof, making cleaning a breeze.
If you have pets in your home, vinyl is a create choice. Pet claws and nails won’t take as much of a toll on their surface as with hardwood. You can install a vinyl floor in your bathroom, kitchen, living room, bedroom, finished basement, or anywhere you want the look and feel of real wood, tile, or stone.
What are the layers that luxury vinyl flooring is made of?
Most vinyl flooring products consist of 4 main layers of polyvinyl chloride resins (PVC). This PVC is melted down and combined with other elements for added durability & moisture resistance.
Once melted down, layers of the PVC are pressed together into planks or tiles which include the following layers:
- A backing layer with waterproof capabilities. This prevents mold or mildew that would otherwise result from the floor soaking up moisture.
- An inner vinyl core layer that lends strength, durability & flexibility.
- A realistic photographic image layer depicting the desired wood look or tile look.
- A surface wear layer on top that provides transparent protection for the image below.
