Why Luxury Vinyl Tile flooring can be the Go-To Option for a Home Owner

Posted February 01, 2023

Luxury vinyl tile flooring, or LVT, is composed of PVC vinyl layers, a realistic 3D photo layer and a durable protective layer. It can be made to look like wood or stone, giving you many patterns, textures and colors to choose from. Unlike vinyl sheets, LVT comes in tile or planks that are easy to install and replace. No wonder why luxury vinyl flooring is becoming one of the go-to options for homeowners!

Let’s explore the many benefits of LVT and why it will make a great fit for your New Jersey home.

100% Waterproof

Perhaps one of the best features of luxury vinyl tile is that it’s waterproof. Not only is the top layer waterproof, but so is the backing layer. This means that you can get the look of wood in your kitchen, laundry room or bathroom without having to worry about spills, water and moisture. This sets LVT apart from wood and laminate flooring, both of which are not waterproof.

Excellent Durability

While it isn’t completely indestructible, LVT is still extremely durable. It is the highest quality of vinyl flooring and preferred over vinyl composite tile. Because the top layer consists of polyvinyl chloride (PVC), it can withstand wear and tear in high-traffic areas. LVT is also resistant to scratches, dents and scuffs, making it kid- and pet-friendly. You will still want to be careful when moving appliances, furniture and other heavy objects.

Easy to Clean and Maintain

Another benefit to installing luxury vinyl flooring in your home is that it’s easy to clean and maintain. Vinyl flooring benefits from regular sweeping or vacuuming, as well as a thorough mopping or washing once every week or two. Other than that, there’s not much to it! Vinyl flooring is hygienic and will not harbor dust, mold or allergens.

Versatile for All Spaces

LVT can be installed over existing floors, concrete, timber or tiles. Our LVT features a click/lock type of installation. Special ordered LVT products are available with an adhesive backing. Floating types of vinyl flooring require you to snap the boards together like you would a laminate flooring. And because vinyl flooring is waterproof and durable, it can be installed in virtually any room in the home!

Long Lifespan

With proper care and maintenance, LVT can last up to 20 years! Of course, this depends on the quality of the flooring, the installation and how you care for the floors. Thickness makes a difference, as does your household. Do you have kids and pets? Do you get heavy foot traffic? Our recommendation: Pick a quality vinyl flooring and care for your floors from day one. This will allow you to maximize your floor’s lifespan.

Luxury vinyl tile flooring is a great option for busy households because it offers the strength of a commercial floor while being elegant, durable and easy to maintain.
