How Does Luxury Vinyl Flooring Work?

Technological advancements have had a huge impact luxury vinyl tile. It looks beautiful but has remained just as affordable, all while still being water-resistant and durable. Its water-resistant nature means it’s a great for areas with high humidity, like Clearwater. Modern LVF is composed of six different layers. These layers include:

  1. Top Coat This layer adds a polished sheen to the flooring and helps protect the wear
layer.
  2. Wear Layer – The wear layer is an invisible protective surface. The depth of the wear layer impacts the durability of the vinyl. The typical thickness of a wear layer shifts between 4 millimeters and 40 millimeters. The thicker the layer, the more durable the flooring. The durability makes it easy to clean and ideal for a home with pets!
  3. Pattern Layer – Like you might assume, the pattern layer hosts the design. When looking at the floor, the pattern layer is what you’ll see. The design could mimic traditional tile, or it could be so much more. At Floor Coverings International Seminole you can find vinyl floors in over 250 different styles.
  4. Cushion Layer The cushion layer adds a soft bounce to the flooring, making it comfortable to walk and stand on. If you’re running around chasing your kids all day, don’t worry; your feet don’t need to ache from the effort.
  5. Fiberglass Layer The fiberglass layer brings in structure and strength, both vital components in any floor.
  6. Base Layer The base layer further increases the stability of the flooring and acts as a barrier against moisture damage.
