Four features of luxury vinyl flooring

Four features of luxury vinyl flooring

Since luxury vinyl is such an adaptable floor covering, it's always a good idea to include it in your list of options when you are ready to install a new floor.

DCO Flooring in Leesburg, FL, offers a large selection of luxury vinyl, so you will find a design that enhances your decorating style. In addition, luxury vinyl flooring is good-looking, waterproof, long-lasting, and versatile.


Luxury vinyl planks mimic domestic and exotic hardwood species, while vinyl tiles imitate wood and tile materials like stone, ceramic, and concrete. Particularly popular wire-brushed and handscraped plank styles feel and look like the natural material they imitate.


The best luxury vinyl plank and vinyl tile flooring is 100 percent waterproof. In addition, because LVP and LVT flooring has a rigid core, its dimensional stability is similar to natural materials. Often, planks and tiles have a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or stone-plastic composite (SPC) core.


The wood or luxury vinyl tile image layer is found above the core layer. Top waterproof luxury vinyl flooring brands have a thick transparent wear layer over the image layer, providing ample protection from heavy foot traffic and daily wear and tear. Expect these brands to last 25 years or more.


Luxury vinyl floors can be installed over any subfloor material since it is available in loose lay, glue-down, and floating floor designs. Loose lay brands butt together while floating floor brands click and lock together. Underlayment cushions footsteps and enhances the LVT flooring performance.
