We are your local luxury vinyl flooring experts, which means you can come to us for the best advice on luxury vinyl. These floors were designed to handle everyday life in your home and can handle even the toughest challenges. You should consider luxury vinyl flooring if you have young children or pets living with you. They can withstand playtime, pet claws, accidental spills, and more. They are a breeze to clean up and require no additional maintenance other than your normal routine.
The first thing that sticks out when you see luxury vinyl is its natural appearance. Luxury vinyl flooring is specially made to look, and sometimes feel, exactly like real hardwood and stone flooring, and because of advancements in digital printing, these looks are truly authentic. For wood looks, be sure to look at vinyl plank flooring, and for tile looks, vinyl tile flooring is a great option.
Luxury Vinyl Tiles: Luxury vinyl tiles are changing the way homeowners look at classic tile flooring. They are much more forgiving underfoot and warmer to walk on. Vinyl tiles feature all the same styles, colours, patterns and more like traditional tile. Vinyl tile flooring is designed to withstand traffic, wear, moisture, and more. Just like traditional tiles, vinyl tiles come as individual pieces that can be installed separately, and some can even be grouted for an authentic look.
Luxury Vinyl Planks: With luxury vinyl plank flooring, you can have the look of hardwood with the easy maintenance of vinyl. Unlike hardwood, luxury vinyl planks do not need to be sealed or refinished at any point, so you are saving money in the short and long term. These planks are resistant to wear, moisture and humidity, so you can install them anywhere in your home. Now you can have wood-look flooring in your kitchen or bathroom!
Although luxury vinyl looks like wood and stone, it does have a few important performance advantages. Luxury vinyl, for example, will resist most scratches and scuffs without any surface treatments, and it also will rarely, if ever, chip or collapse under heavy foot traffic. Plus, many luxury vinyl options even have waterproof cores, so they can be installed in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas with moisture.
While most luxury vinyl flooring has a level of moisture resistance, we also carry a selection of 100% waterproof luxury vinyl flooring. Unlike moisture-resistant flooring, waterproof floors are 100% water-repellent and designed to handle multiple exposures to humidity and spills. Our waterproof vinyl products are installed with leak-tight seams that won’t allow moisture to escape below the surface. They also generally have a rigid core that prevents each plank or tile from expanding when it’s wet, leading to swelling and damage. Lastly, waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is equipped with a fast-drying, stain-resistant surface that’s easy to clean, hypoallergenic, and non-porous. Waterproof floors are traditionally installed in bathrooms and kitchens. Our wood-look waterproof vinyl plank is perfect for that spa-like bathroom or farm-style kitchen you’ve been dreaming of. Not to mention, many homeowners and businesses are opting to install waterproof luxury vinyl throughout their space, including areas like the living room and bathroom. It’s also popular in restaurants, bars, cafes, downtown shops, salons, and other spaces.
Even with this rigid construction, these luxury vinyl flooring options remain more comfortable underfoot than hardwood and stone. In addition to being a great flooring option for kitchens and bathrooms, luxury vinyl can also be installed in basements and laundry rooms. Other rooms around your home that would be great to install luxury vinyl include bedrooms, living rooms, hallways, and entryways. Today’s vinyl plank and tile can be installed with or without adhesive, and by design, both methods are relatively quick. There are also sheet vinyl options, which can be applied directly over your existing subfloor. Whether you opt for plank, vinyl, or sheet, your new floor will be permanently bonded down, which means it’s guaranteed to stay in place amidst daily foot traffic. In many cases, luxury vinyl planks and tiles are designed to simply click together, resulting in a glue-free, “floating” floor that’s free of unsightly bulges and gaps.
