In lieu of traditional hardwoods and tiles, luxury vinyl flooring treatments have become the latest trend. Offering beautiful finishes for less, they are easy to find and relatively simple to install. Here’s a look at why many Clients are flocking towards luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile materials.
Better Supply and Installation Pricing
Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) and vinyl planks (LVP), are becoming more readily available in the flooring industry for the most part, because the economic shift necessitated a floor alternative that offers better price points as well as durability. Manufacturers captured this market knowing they can produce these flooring materials inexpensively, and they are able to move this product with the suppliers based on the features they offers including ease of installation, and a broader audience to purchase it. Pricing on this product is approximately half the price of standard tile and hardwood flooring and there is generally no required flooring removal or subflooring additions at installation, which is why so many Clients are opting for LVT/LVP flooring selections.
Durable and Long-Lasting With Little Upkeep
In comparison to hardwood that can splinter, show scratches and nicks, warp or crack, LVT and LVP incorporate a hard wear layer that makes them extremely durable and stable. As a result of this extra coating, they are long-lasting and require minimal maintenance or upkeep making them ideal for any area of your home or business. More moisture-resistant than hardwoods, and far less susceptible to climates or dramatic temperature changes, warranties can last upwards of 20 years under residential or commercial conditions depending on the coating and thickness of the wear layer. Reliable and easy to maintain flooring, luxury vinyl tile and planks are a hot commodity.
The Same Great Look For Less
Manufacturers are able to reproduce the look of hardwood and porcelain/ceramic tiles and it is becoming more difficult for the average consumer to tell the difference. Luxury vinyl plank flooring selections mimic exotic woods, rough-hewn reclaimed timber, and even weathered barn wood depending on the style and brand you choose. Stone finishes incorporated with the hard-coated layer of luxury vinyl tiles offer a refined, rich, and tasteful flooring finish that can rival more expensive ceramic and porcelain floor tiles. Moreover, with the choice of having the LVT grouted or installed as continuous flooring, it offers an unparalleled level of customization when compared to their more expensive and limited counterparts.
Luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring is here to stay. Practical, durable, climate-resistant, reliable, highly cost-effective, and available in a wide array of styles and designs, it is an ideal flooring solution. Achieving beautiful results for less has never been easier.
