What Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
We at Floors Direct Carpet One in Gilroy, CA are your neighborhood flooring experts, so we offer one of the area’s best selections of luxury vinyl flooring. Luxury vinyl flooring, as you might know, has quickly become one of the most highly sought-after flooring options by homeowners. What exactly is luxury vinyl?
Luxury vinyl flooring is specially-made to look exactly like real hardwood or stone. Because of advances in digital printing, these looks are truly authentic, so it’s sometimes difficult to discern between luxury vinyl and its natural counterparts! Some luxury vinyl floors even have registered embossed surfaces, so they even feel like wood or stone.
For authentic wood looks, be sure to choose vinyl plank flooring. But, if you’re looking for tile or stone looks, vinyl tile flooring is a better option.
Although luxury vinyl flooring looks like real hardwood or stone, it offers premium performance. Luxury vinyl floors, for example, can handle spills and stains without any special treatments, and they will resist scratches and scuffs as well. Therefore, luxury vinyl, unlike hardwood and stone, can pretty much be installed anywhere in the home.
Furthermore, many high-end luxury vinyl flooring options such as COREtec and Mannington Adura Max feature super-strong waterproof cores. With these cores, the vinyl planks and tiles will never expand or contract when exposed to moisture, and they won’t crack or chip even in areas with heavy foot traffic. This luxury vinyl flooring option is referred to as WPC flooring.
Given its synthetic construction, luxury vinyl flooring is rather flexible compared to wood and stone. Consequently, it’s more comfortable underfoot. COREtec, Adura Max, and a few other luxury vinyl options even have cork underlayments for extra softness and warmth.
As part of our luxury vinyl flooring selection, we offer COREtec, Adura Max, and Armstrong Luxe, among other options. Plus, we offer XL Flooring. To learn more about luxury vinyl and to check out our selection first-hand, visit our Gilroy showroom!
