Types of Vinyl Explained
We have a broad range of vinyl designs to suit your needs when it comes to selecting the best vinyl flooring for your home or office. Vinyl flooring has come a long way since the introduction of sheet vinyl, and the luxury vinyl flooring industry is now thriving.
While sheet vinyl is available in rolls, luxury vinyl flooring comes in either tiles or planks. Rivaling natural hardwood's beauty, luxury vinyl planks are made from the same four layers of plastic that compose traditional vinyl. However, luxury vinyl flooring has a thicker wear layer that performs better with foot traffic and under humid conditions.
Thanks to a click-and-lock system, luxury vinyl flooring is waterproof, making it ideal for areas with high moisture content. You can now install the wood-look floor of your dreams in every room of the building, including the kitchen, basement, and bathrooms. Read on to learn more about the difference between our luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile selections:
Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP)
LVP is the most popular choice for those looking to replicate natural hard or softwood planking. Unlike traditional vinyl sheets which are thin and use adhesive for installation, LVP is extremely thick and durable, with a wear layer that can withstand scratches, heat, fading, and water damage. One of the benefits of choosing LVP over hardwood is the soft feeling underfoot without the risk of splinters, warping, or the absorption of stains. Although wood-look LVP is one of the most popular options, LVP can also mimic the vibrant aesthetic of ceramic, stone, or porcelain.
Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT)
Similar to LVP, luxury vinyl tile offers the same comfort and durability as its counterpart. LVT is typically cut into square tiles as opposed to planks. In most cases, customers seek out LVT as an alternative to ceramic, porcelain, slate, and stone, though wood-look tile is available as well. While traditional ceramics can be porous and absorb some moisture, LVT naturally repels liquids making cleaning easy and stress-free.

Easy Vinyl Maintenance
We carry the top vinyl brands in the industry, known for their reliability under challenging stains and messes. With simple maintenance such as regular sweeps and vacuums, vinyl floors are easy to keep clean. Vinyl rarely scuffs or scratches, keeping a brand new appearance for years to come. It's a good idea to damp mop your vinyl now and then, but it's best to check your warranty before using any harsh cleaning chemicals, as these can damage the surface of your vinyl.
