What is LVT Flooring?LVT stands for Luxury Vinyl Tile and is flooring that is usually designed to look like real wood or stone but is much more practical in terms of benefits. LVT flooring can come in any shape or size but often comes in planks or tiles as it is engineered to look real and authentic, replicating the look of real materials without the installation expenses and maintenance drawbacks.
How is LVT Flooring Made?
LVT is made of a series of thin layers that are fused together under high pressure and hot temperature in a pressing machine to produce a quality, consistent finish that is waterproof.
How does LVT compare with laminate?
There are several differences when comparing LVT and Laminate flooring. They are often made with different materials. The core of laminate flooring is wood byproducts and resin while LVT can consist of up to 8 layers of various durable materials. Laminate flooring is a floating floor system and is not glued down, while LVT offers loose lay, click-down and glue-down options.
Why are LVT Floors So thin?
LVT flooring is usually between 2mm and 6mm thick and built up of several different layers of varying thickness. These thin layers each contribute a different benefit, including durability, strength as well as acoustic properties. LVT floors are thin because they are densely packed with several thin layers, making them extremely durable and long-lasting.
What are the benefits of choosing LVT Flooring?
LVT is durable and can tolerate conditions that some natural materials can't. The built-in protective layer offers incredible, long-lasting protection against damage such as scuffs or scratches. It's easy to install and relatively simple to maintain.
