Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is versatile

Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is versatile

Luxury vinyl is a multiple-layer synthetic flooring that can tolerate water for extended periods. Thus, the flooring is desirable for every home area, including the bathroom, laundry room, and basement. This durable flooring, which resists abrasion and stains, is child-and-pet-friendly. Family-owned Olden Carpet and Flooring offers a wide selection of waterproof vinyl flooring. Our showroom is located in Penndel, Pennsylvania.

Luxury vinyl facts

Luxury vinyl planks mimic hardwood, while luxury vinyl tiles mimic hardwood, stone, and ceramic. Each plank and tile has a backing, core, high-tech image, and wear layer. Products with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) core or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core are waterproof. Durability is dependent upon the transparent wear layer, which protects the image layer. Choose a 20+ mil wear layer for maximum durability. Embossed in register luxury vinyl is superior in quality. The flooring has a textured finish that aligns with the wood or stone image.

Installation method

Usually, vinyl plank flooring is designed for floating floor installation, while tiles are found in floating floor and glue-down styles. More specifically, planks and some tiles have interlocking edges so the floor can be situated above the subfloor instead of being attached to it. Underlayment is placed beneath the floor to enhance its performance. Loose lay luxury vinyl flooring, which butts together, is also available. This is an excellent semi-permanent flooring option.
