What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
As a result of the evolution of technology, vinyl flooring has seen a huge transformation with time. Manufacturers now have the ability to create a product that compares to hardwood, ceramic and stone in both appearance and performance. Vinyl floors are constructed in different ways, the majority of vinyl floors are sold in long rolls commonly known as sheet vinyl. These sheets are typically composed of a backing layer, a vinyl core, a printed image layer and the protective wear layer. The image layer features a high-quality photograph that imitates the appearance of hardwood or tile. Vinyl floors are also manufactured in planks or tiles for a more traditional flooring installation and appearance. Vinyl planks and tiles can be manufactured in a layered way similar to sheet vinyl, or they can be one solid piece all the way from the tile’s surface to its backing. These solid vinyl tiles are more durable and will show less wear, but they don't necessarily feature the high-quality image layer that many homeowners are looking for.
