The term "luxury vinyl" might seem like an oxymoron, but it's a very high-end product used in homes where the realistic look and feel of all-natural materials are desired. You can choose from the appearance of porcelain tile, natural stone, or solid hardwood flooring for a classic luxury that never goes out of style.

Thanks to new technological advancements, these floors look, and function in a way that gives you the best value and the best performance. With a lifespan averaging 25 years, you'll find it a perfect addition to many, if not all, spaces in your home.

Luxury vinyl flooring has layers

Luxury vinyl flooring has layers, making it a very stable and durable material for all floors. The bottom layer, or backing, usually consists of vinyl and limestone. On the very top is a heavy protective layer made of aluminum oxide that helps to resist scratches, scuffs, fading, and everyday wear. 

Underneath that, is a thinner clear layer that works to resists ripping, denting, and tearing. It even allows you to move heavy furniture without fear of damaging your floors. 

The next layer has the actual image you have chosen, whether it be tile, stone, or wood. Different brands offer an assortment of variations to this layer. That means one brand might look better to you than another.

You should know that the top wear layer is available in a variety of thicknesses so that you can choose exactly what you need for the average traffic in your home. Thicker wear layers mean more durability, and thus, a longer lifespan.
