What is the lifespan of luxury vinyl flooring?

When you shop for flooring, you want something that looks great and performs well for a long time. It's a significant investment in your home, after all.

Luxury vinyl flooring is available in two forms: luxury vinyl plank and tile. Depending on quality and care, you can expect each form to last for at least 20 years. Usually more, however.

It would not be easy to find something that offers so much value for the decorating dollar as this vinyl. It's affordable, stylish, and comes with countless benefits.

Let’s break it all down.

The style of genuine materials

This premium yet budget-friendly product offers true-to-life images of wood, stone, and tile. The floors have depth, dimension, and textured looks.

To add even more realism, vinyl plank, sometimes called LVP flooring, can be cut into strips. It's mounted on boards to mimic hardwood planks.

Alternatively, it is cut into square, tile-sized pieces.

Durability fit for kids and pets

All forms are layered and five times thicker than the original product. A transparent, melamine wear layer between the printed design sheet and top coating.

The wear layer protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents. It's impossible to "walk off" the design layer.

Waterproof capabilities

This can be submerged or spilled on without damage. That means no worries about staining, rippling, peeling, or curling edges, ultimately replacing luxury vinyl tile or plank.

Other benefits include:

Low maintenance. All these floors need regular sweeping and periodic mopping to keep your LVT or LVP in top shape. Avoid waxy, shine-promoting cleaners as they can damage the finish and dull the floors.

Easy installation: This can be glued or installed to float.
