Luxury vinyl tile flooring in Leesburg, FL from DCO Flooring

Is luxury vinyl flooring scratch-resistant?

Luxury vinyl flooring is a tough synthetic material that resists scratches and other abrasions and stains. Waterproof brands are practical. Frequent entertainers, pet owners, and parents, in particular, appreciate the durability of this no-fuss floor covering. Central Florida residents can find a great selection of stylish wood and tile look flooring at DCO Flooring. We have a showroom in Leesburg, FL, and our mobile showroom makes home visits.

Wear layer

Four-layer luxury vinyl flooring can be installed anywhere in the home. The core layer, protected by the backing layer, makes up the bulk of the plank or tile. The wear layer determines durability. When this transparent surface layer becomes worn, it can no longer protect the image layer. Then the floor needs to be replaced. Therefore, it's wise to note the thickness of the wear layer when you're comparing brands. A 20-mil surface layer is suitable for even the most active areas of a home.

Rigid core luxury vinyl flooring

Rigid core luxury vinyl is sturdy like the natural flooring materials it mimics rather than flexible like other types of vinyl flooring. This waterproof floor covering has a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core. Typically, WPC flooring is installed in homes, while almost indestructible SPC flooring is laid in commercial spaces. Like other luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring, most brands are designed to connect, so attachment to a subfloor is unnecessary. Instead, the floor floats above the subfloor.
