Luxury vinyl was developed to give your floors the authentic hardwood look without the hefty price tag. Vinyl flooring remains one of the top choices for home and business owners today. While the benefits have remained consistent, with luxury vinyl being waterproof, scratch-resistant, and easy to maintain, its composition and construction continue to evolve, making it one of the most popular and versatile product categories in the floor covering industry. Luxury vinyl is made up of multiple layers, starting from top to bottom;
Finish Layer- A coating applied to the top of the wear layer for scratch resistance, stain protection, and appearance retention.
Wear Layer- A protective layer applied to the top surface of vinyl flooring that varies in thickness with each product. This layer is measured in Mils (mm) which is about the thickness of a page in a phone book. (8mil, 12mil, 20mil, 30mil) A thicker wear layer will help with performance under heavy traffic.
Image Layer - A layer of printed film gives the look of wood or stone, which is very important when choosing what style and color of flooring you want in your home.
Core Layer- This can vary depending on the construction of what flooring you choose.
Backing Layer- Bottom layer that provides a supportive foundation to ensure a high-performing product.
(LVP) Luxury vinyl planks come in plank looks that can vary in length and width. Some companies such as Shaw Floorte offer multi-width plank styles with a painted beveled edge, adding more character and variation to your flooring.
Luxury vinyl planks offer realistic wood looks and textures at a lower price point. Most planks will have a 25-year warranty to a lifetime warranty.
It will take many years to walk through your wear layer alone. For this reason, we always say "thicker does not equal better quality"
Your wear layer alone is what you will be walking on for years to come. When you are shopping here at Mark's Floors, your wear layer is what counts the most along with the style and color you choose.
(LVT) Luxury Vinyl Tiles offer beautiful tile visuals and textures, perfect for any kitchen or bathroom, along with being warmer, easier to clean, maintain, and replace. If you drop something heavy on a classic ceramic tile, you run the risk of the tile cracking, the repair time on a ceramic tile is significant, but with LVT, the repair time is no more than just a few minutes, by heating up the tile, you can peel up the tile and replace with new, it's really that simple. An added bonus with Armstrong's Alterna Tile is that grout is optional. If you do go with grout, it's nothing like traditional grout, Armstrong's acrylic grout is much easier to clean, you also have the option to go right over your existing grout with a new color if you want to change things up, instead of chipping out the grout on ceramic tile.
Loose lay vinyl planks are somewhat of a new concept for the flooring world.
