How long will luxury vinyl flooring last?

How long will luxury vinyl flooring last?

With good quality (i.e., thickness), correct installation, and superior care, luxury vinyl (LVF) can last anywhere from 20 to 25 years. This premium, affordable, waterproof, and durable flooring is an excellent choice for any room in the house. It would not be easy to find something with as much value for the dollar.

At Carpetland, we strive for complete customer satisfaction. We carry quality products and give a superior, craftsman-like installation that makes you love your new floor. Our top-of-the-line luxury vinyl brands include, among others, Congoleum, Karastan-Luxecraft, Pergo Extreme, and Tarkett.

Affordable style
While you won't pay nearly the same price as you would for genuine materials, you will have nature-inspired, true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile. They are taken with high-definition photography and are clear and vibrant with knots, swirls, grains, veining variations, and brilliant colors and patterns. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured features.

LVF follows all the trends and, for added realism, it is cut into long planks, called luxury vinyl plank or LVP or square, tile-sized pieces that can be used with or without grout, called luxury vinyl tile or LVT.

Extreme durability
All vinyl is strong, but this is five times thicker than the original product, with a top, transparent, melamine wear sheet that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and wear. On top of that is a clear urethane finish that adds extra shine and strength. True LVF should measure 8-mm to 12-mm in thickness, with the wear layer measuring 20-mils.

Composed of watertight materials, LVF can be submerged or spilled on without consequence.

Other benefits include:

Low maintenance
Requiring only a regular sweeping
Periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner
Installation is also simple, especially when it's a floating floor where the pieces click, mat, and hover over a clean, dry and level subfloor.
