This version of vinyl
flooring has the same style as the luxury version. It is an amazingly
realistic echo of wood, stone, or tile, but you certainly won’t pay
the same prices as you would for the genuine materials. The images
are taken with 3D photography, so they are clear and accurate, with
knots, wormholes, raised grains, swirls, veining variations, and
vibrant colors and patterns. Micro beveling and embossing add depth
and dimension with textured appearances such as wire-brushed, hand
scraped, weathered, or antiqued.
A great design option
is that the material can be cut into long planks to mimic hardwood
boards called vinyl plank flooring (LVP). If you prefer more seams,
it can also be cut into square, groutable tile-sized pieces (LVT
flooring). Some people prefer LVP for stone looks because of the
fewer seams and the more continuous look like that of a quarried
slab. However, others feel seams add to the realism and use LVT for
stone, tile, and sometimes even wood looks.
LVF is multi-layered
and, at the top, is a clear, strong, melamine wear sheet that
protects against scratches and scuffs. This should measure at least
20-mils in thickness. The vinyl itself should be at least 8-mm or
higher. Thicker is better, and some opt for 10-mm or 12-mm to get
the authentic hardwood feeling underfoot. It is low maintenance and
requires only a daily sweeping and periodic mopping.
Installation can be a
floating floor that is click, mat, and hover. Although fast and
relatively uncomplicated, our installers will sometimes sand the
subfloor to ensure imperfections don’t telegraph through to the
surface. Our goal is to give you a floor to be proud of! Learn about
