Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) Flooring
What is luxury vinyl tile or LVT flooring?
Thanks to its comfort, varying styles, simpler installation, yet pristine look, luxury vinyl tile is sweeping the market.
LVT flooring is great if you have an active home with kids or pets.
Today’s luxury vinyl tile is some of the most innovative, versatile, and high-performing flooring available. Premium vinyl flooring offers the richness and texture of more expensive natural materials, such as hardwood, ceramic tile, and stone, without maxing out your budget.
Most homeowners are familiar with vinyl tile flooring, which was the popular peel-and-stick flooring years ago. Luxury vinyl tile is similar in its construction, which is comprised of a wear layer, image layer, core and backing; however, luxury vinyl tile is thicker and offers greater durability.
Modern luxury vinyl tile has the added benefit of a more realistic flooring design and appeal, which allows it to be an affordable rival for regular tile.
Is luxury vinyl tile durable?
Luxury vinyl tile is made to withstand even the busiest homes. The majority of LVT tile is scratch, stain, wear resistant, and 100% waterproof.
LVT tile offered by Hatcher’s Floors comes with manufacturer warranties that range from 15 to 30 year.
Luxury vinyl is strong but soft underfoot, maintaining a comfortable temperature in all seasons, which makes it perfect for Virginia homes. Vinyl is waterproof, which makes it great for kitchens or other high-traffic areas such as a living room or den.
Luxury vinyl tile is easy to clean and maintain, which makes it an exceptional flooring choice.
Different styles of LVT tile
Not only is luxury vinyl tile a popular and affordable option compared to wood plank flooring, it also mimics a variety of natural tile designs.
LVT tile comes in realistic looking wood species – everything from traditional oak, walnut and birch, to even some exotic woods with grain patterns.
You may also choose classic stone styles such as marble, slate, travertine, concrete-inspired planks, and more.
Luxury vinyl tile also comes in a variety of texture and finishing options like weathered, white-washed, liming, and reclaimed looks.
Luxury Vinyl Tile Options
Generally, luxury vinyl tile is one of the easier flooring types to install, but the specific installation will depend on the product you choose.
Choose from either:
- Repositionable self-adhesive installation – This is the quickest and easiest method of installing luxury vinyl tile. Simply peel off the backing and place the tile or plank in place, then reposition as needed.
- Floating floor (angle locking installation) – This method has the benefit of not requiring any adhesive. Simply connect the planks to each other on an angle, then snap them into place. This is called “floating floor” since it essentially floats over the subfloor. Since this method can implement a few different angle locking methods, it is best to hire an experienced flooring company for installation.
- Glue-down installation – A traditional glue-down, full-spread adhesive that you spread over the subfloor with a trowel before laying down the planks.
