Posing smart and stylish solutions to all of your everyday flooring dilemmas, luxury vinyl works well in many different settings. Manufactured to resemble natural hardwood, tile, and stone, these floors have some major advantages over other flooring types. Using advanced printing and manufacturing technologies to achieve realistic surface visuals and textures, luxury vinyl is affordable, simple to care for, and exceptionally tough.
At FDW Carpet One Floor & Home in Crystal Lake, IL, we’re the region’s most trusted flooring source and that means we offer an impressive collection of modern vinyl products. Backed by the demands of home and business owners, LV flooring has many impressive attributes, including stain, wear, and water-resistance.
Are you thinking of adding some luxury vinyl flooring in your home or business? Here are some things you might like to know.
LV flooring comes in two main types: planks and tiles. Luxury vinyl tiles emulate natural stone, ceramic, and porcelain and come in square and rectangular pieces with artificial grout lines. Luxury vinyl planks look just like real hardwood, with a textured surface that matches the grain patterns and knots. Luxury vinyl flooring is much easier to maintain than its natural wood and stone counterparts. It will resist spills and stains without any special treatment or finishes, so only routine cleaning is necessary. And when it comes to cleaning, sweeping and occasionally mopping are enough to keep these floors looking their best.
There are many advantages to choosing LVP flooring. Thanks to modern imaging technology, it flawlessly captures the beauty of maple, oak, hickory, birch, pine, mahogany, cherry, and other prized hardwood types. Plus, the planks are available in extra wide options, multiple lengths, multiple tones, and even with textured surfaces that match the grain patterns. Essentially, there are an endless amount of creative flooring looks you can create for an affordable cost and with very little upkeep.
Vinyl tiles are far more crack and chip resistant than their natural counterparts. They can handle the occasional dropped plate or glass, along with heavy foot traffic and other wear and tear. You also won’t need to worry about the grout staining or crumbling. Most vinyl products today have a urethane-based surface that’s highly scratch and dent-resistant. The thicker the wear layer, the stronger the floor is usually. On top of their durability, we have vinyl tiles with cushioned underlayments. This improves insulation and makes the floor more comfortable to stand on. It also helps absorb noises like pet claws and foot steps.
Sheet vinyl is an alternative to natural stone or wood floors in rooms such as kitchens or bathrooms. The layered construction provides stability, comfort, and a protective layer for durability. When most people think of sheet vinyl, they think of outdated products. Sheet vinyl has seen several improvements over the years, and features more realistic visuals than ever. Because sheet vinyl comes in 6 and 12-foot-wide rolls, the installation is usually seamless and smooth.
Although luxury vinyl flooring looks exactly like wood, stone, and tile, it offers premium, long-lasting performance. It can handle heavy foot traffic and other impacts, and it will resist scratching and scuffing even in busy households. We offer vinyl floors that are totally waterproof. Waterproof luxury vinyl boasts a sturdy, protective top coat that traps spills on the surface, as well as a reinforced core preventing even the most stubborn splashes from seeping into your subfloor. The planks or tiles also won’t warp when exposed to humidity. Consequently, luxury vinyl flooring can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas where spills are inevitable. It’s also a good kid and pet-friendly flooring choice.
Most luxury vinyl flooring options offer a glueless installation. This installation option, which is usually called a click-lock or floating floor method, is relatively quick and easy. It also makes the floor simple to repair and replace down the line. How does this installation method work? The vinyl planks or tiles will perfectly attach together and remain in place over the subfloor, almost like a puzzle. We also offer glue-down vinyl installations, which is particularly suited for high-traffic, moisture-prone spaces.
Offering affordable and long-lasting performance, luxury vinyl is made to manage even the most challenging interiors. For all of these reasons and more, the right type of luxury vinyl flooring can be installed virtually anywhere. Rigid core vinyl is often chosen for commercial settings and there are plenty of styles, patterns, textures, and colors to choose from, making it easy to integrate into any setting that comes to mind.
