What is LVT?


LVT, short for luxury vinyl tile, is a great option for home or business owners who are interested in incorporating the look of tile flooring at a lower cost. LVT is made of several layers; vinyl backing and core are topped with a print film layer (that’s the design you choose) and topped with a protective clear coat. While LVT is used often as an alternative to tile floors, you can also choose a look that resembles stone.

Why Should I Choose LVT Flooring?


When you choose LVT, you have the flexibility to create a unique look in your home or office that reflects your personality or design aesthetic. It’s different from sheet vinyl in that you can customize the layout. Herringbone pattern, anyone?

It’s also durable, easily cleaned with a quick sweep or mop! If you’re considering installing underfloor heating or already have it, LVT is a great option. On its own, it will already be warmer that real wood or stone, but sometimes you want that extra coziness, which LVT lends itself to perfectly.

It’s simple to install and often times, our team will only have to use minimal surface prep to get your floors ready for LVT.

Is LVT the Same as Laminate?


Contrary to popular belief, LVT is not the same as laminate flooring. Laminate flooring is made from wood powder, which means that it can warp when exposed to moisture. Since LVT is made of vinyl, it will hold up against spills, mopping, and any other moisture.
