A few commonly asked questions about LVP flooring
LVP flooring (luxury vinyl plank) is one of the two forms of luxury vinyl. The planks are made by cutting the vinyl into strips and mounting it on boards.
The other form refers to the material cut into square, groutable tile-sized pieces (luxury vinyl tile or LVT). Many use this for stone and tile mimics.
Here are a few of the questions we often hear in our showroom.
Does it look like genuine wood?
Yes, and we can thank modern technology for that. For example, manufacturers use machinery to create textures and characteristics, such as knots and grains, with vinyl plank flooring.
With genuine wood, all of the above is either done by hand or naturally found in the forest. These are amazingly realistic simulations!
This includes knots, swirls, grains, and color variations. In addition, textures have rustic styles, such as brushed, hand scraped, or distressed.
What does embossed-in-register mean?
This is a type of textured appearance that may be the most realistic yet. This is because embossing creates little indentations that match the image's grain.
Can luxury vinyl flooring stand up to my kids and pets?
Absolutely! This is layered and five times thicker than the original product. Luxury vinyl flooring also has a robust and transparent melamine wear layer.
The wear layer protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents. It also keeps spills from absorbing.
Correct installation and proper care= a life span of 25 years
It is waterproof whether submerged or spilled on. That means no water damage, staining, peeling, or rippling.
Low maintenance. The simpler something is to keep clean, the easier it is to care for it.
Uncomplicated installation: Especially when it’s installed via the floating floor.
