Luxury Vinyl Tile & Plank
We carry several brands of Luxury Vinyl Tile and Plank:
Several of our Luxury Vinyl products are warranted for both commercial and residential use, and many styles are economical but durable alternatives to ceramic tile and hardwood. Luxury Vinyl Tile and Plank products often exceed customers’ expectations!
Luxury vinyl Tile vs. Ceramic
It is sometimes used in place of “real” ceramic tile because of its realistic appearance and much lower installed cost. Several styles are available with a realistic grout edge as part of the tile while some others have the option of being grouted like real ceramic.
Luxury Vinyl Tile vs. Hardwood
Many customers prefer to use realistic wood-look Luxury Vinyl Plank instead of actual hardwood if they are concerned about their pets damaging real wood, or for use in higher moisture areas such as kitchens and bathrooms. Luxury Vinyl Plank is less likely than wood to be damaged over time by dogs’ nails and topical moisture.
Luxury Vinyl Tile & Plank vs. Sheet Vinyl
While the starting cost of Luxury Vinyl Tile is similar to that of a high grade sheet vinyl, even “cheap” Luxury Vinyl Tile is generally tougher than vinyl. In the presence of significant moisture beneath the surface, most sheet vinyl floors will discolor due to the “felt” (paper) backing (even when the moisture does not cause sub-floor damage), whereas Luxury Vinyl Tile will not discolor due to moisture. Sheet vinyl is also more susceptible to indenting and puncturing because of its relative softness (and is difficult to patch with integrity). If a single Luxury Vinyl Tile or Plank is ever significantly damaged (which is hard to do) it can be replaced fairly easily.
Luxury Vinyl Tile & Plank vs. Laminate
Luxury Vinyl Tile & Plank is a nice alternative to laminated flooring. Luxury Vinyl products are generally not susceptible to the types of moisture problems that are fairly common with laminate. Laminates can sometimes “swell” at the joints in the presence of topical moisture, even as a result of repeated wet mopping. This makes Luxury Vinyl Tile and Plank better suited for bathrooms and kitchens. Luxury Vinyl products are also much easier to repair if necessary, which is very rare! And although most Luxury Vinyl products are glued directly to the sub-floor or underlayment, some products are installed as a “floating” floor — similar to laminate but without the drawbacks.
