Luxury vinyl flooring designs are realistic

 
Vinyl is a synthetic flooring material that is most often found in bathrooms and kitchens since it is not damaged by moisture. It is appropriate for any space in the home, including four-season sunrooms and patios. Standard vinyl flooring comes in sheets that are glued down while thicker luxury vinyl planks and tiles usually do not need glue. A.W. Bergey & Sons Inc. is a luxury vinyl retailer that carries many vinyl floor-covering styles. We have been offering flooring and related services in Harleysville, Pennsylvania, since 1950.
 

LVP

 
Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) mimics hardwood flooring. The multi-layer planks feature a backing layer under the core and a design layer and protective wear layer above it. Since the wear layer determines the durability, its thickness is important. A 20 mil or more thickness is advisable. The best brands have an additional protective coating over the wear layer.
 

LVT

 
The luxury vinyl tile (LVT) mimics ceramic and stone flooring. As with LVP, LVT is almost indistinguishable from the natural materials it imitates because the design created with advanced digital printing technology is so precise. The easy to clean flooring resists scuffs, dents, stains, and scratches. Some tough brands are designed to make life easy for pet owners.
 
 
 
 
 
 

WPC and SPC

 
Vinyl flooring with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core has a more technologically advanced construction than standard luxury vinyl. The former is made of wood pulp while the latter is composed of limestone. Water does not damage the flooring, which has a stable core that is stiff, yet soft underfoot. In contrast, standard vinyl has a rubber core.
 

Installation

 
Thin and flexible luxury vinyl flooring features a click and lock design. This allows planks and tiles to be connected to form a floor that floats over the subfloor. Specially formulated underlayment comes attached to some brands. If not, it is added during the installation process. LVP and LVT can be placed over solid surfaces, including concrete and some existing flooring.
