Vinyl has come a long way over the years. You will no longer just find sheet vinyl on the shelves of our showroom, but also luxury vinyl planks and tiles. Rather than one broad sheet, LVP and LVT flooring comes in individual pieces. Each is equipped with a high-definition veneer that authentically mirrors natural hardwood, tile, or stone. The likeness is so real that most homeowners can’t tell the difference between modern vinyl and the natural products it emulates.
LVP flooring is available in long, slender panels that are either flexible or rigid, depending on the product. Each plank features the rich, swirling wood grain patterns and natural knots of real hardwood. Many also have a textured surface that matches the image. You can also find unique characteristics like extra wide planks, bevelled edges, multi-tone shades, and multi-length planks. The main advantages of LVP floors over real hardwood include easy maintenance, affordability, and moisture-resistance. Your vinyl planks will never need to be sanded, waxed, refinished, or specially cleaned to stay looking beautiful. They’re also highly stain and wear-resistant.
LVT flooring comes in the same shapes and sizes as real porcelain, ceramic, or stone. Like vinyl planks, vinyl tiles have specialized embossing so that their visuals and texture match. You can even grout your vinyl tiles so that they look more real. Vinyl is usually softer underfoot than real tile and stone, and less likely to crack over time. You can also find products with a cushioned underlayment or core layer, which adds warmth and noise control underfoot.
In addition to luxury vinyl tiles and planks, we offer water-resistant and waterproof vinyl products. Waterproof luxury vinyl planks are especially popular because they provide a stylish alternative to real hardwood, which is prone to warping when exposed to moisture. Waterproof vinyl options also protect your subfloor from leaks that can cause long-term damage like rot, mould, and mildew growth.
