Luxury vinyl flooring is ideal for active households
Luxury vinyl flooring is a no-fuss material that stands up to active kids, dinner party guests, and family pets. Spills are removed in an instant, and routine cleaning is easy. Best of all, this synthetic flooring is less costly than the natural materials it imitates. The Carpet Store in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, offers a wide selection of luxury vinyl, including luxury vinyl plank (LVP) and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) flooring. We provide an experienced installation team and knowledgeable flooring specialists who can provide any assistance you may need with your flooring project.
Luxury vinyl is a composite material that is thicker than standard vinyl. Instead of sheets, it comes in planks that look like hardwood and tiles that look like hardwood, stone, and ceramic. The backing layer supports the core. The design layer above the core is created with digital printing technology. Deep embossing on the thickest planks creates the most realistic look.
The wear layer protects the design layer from scratches, stains, and wear caused by daily activities. Since this transparent surface layer determines the durability of a product, thicker is better. Therefore, the best brands have the greatest plank and tile thickness and a thick wear layer. A 20+mil protective layer is ideal for the most active households.
LVP and LVT flooring have a stone plastic composite core; the best vinyl material is almost indestructible. The primary component in this core is limestone. Instead of being flexible like standard vinyl, this rigid core flooring feels similar to the material it imitates. All SPC flooring is waterproof. It won't change structurally even when it is in standing water.
Luxury vinyl plank and tile that has a wood-plastic composite core, or WPC, is also waterproof. Like SPC flooring, this type of flooring is not damaged by standing water. In addition to wood byproducts, a WPC core contains a foaming agent that makes it softer underfoot than SPC. While this rigid-core vinyl flooring is not as tough as SPC, it is strong and made to last.
The Carpet Store, opened in 1986, can install any type of residential and commercial luxury vinyl flooring. Usually, this floor covering is designed to float over the subfloor rather than being attached to it. We are experienced with these click-and-lock brands as well as the more traditional glue-down brands.
