Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) can be installed in every room of the house. You can determine the most appropriate brand for any particular room by considering factors like radiant heating, moisture, condition of the subfloor, and type of existing floor. Mainland Flooring is a locally owned luxury vinyl flooring retailer that has been serving the South Jersey area since 2001. We can help you find the brands that meet your needs. We have a wide selection of LVF in our Pleasantville, New Jersey, showroom as well as carpet, laminate, hardwood, cork, and more.

Luxury vinyl

Standard vinyl comes in sheets, and luxury vinyl is available in planks and tiles. Both types of vinyl flooring are designed to look like natural stone, ceramic tile, or hardwood. But LVF has a more realistic look, and some planks and tiles can even be grouted between the seams. It is also thicker than standard vinyl. LVF is soft underfoot, and it maintains a comfortable temperature during every season of the year. LVF is resilient and resistant to dents, scratches, and daily wear and tear. Some brands are particularly good at resisting heat and sunlight and others are very good at repelling pet stains.

Water-resistant vs waterproof

Luxury vinyl floors that are waterproof won't warp, buckle, or swell even when they are wet for a prolonged period. Waterproof LVF is made of two types of core materials. Wood-plastic composite (WPC) contains recycled wood pulp while stone plastic composite (SPC) contains limestone powder. Water-resistant LVF is not damaged in a damp basement or when liquid is spilled on it. A base layer, design layer, and wear layer complete the plank or tile. Look for a thick wear layer with a protective coating. LVF can be glued to the floor or connected to float over the subfloor.
