Luxury vinyl tile, or LVT as it’s often called, is quickly becoming one of the most popular flooring materials used in homes today. This is because of the numerous luxury vinyl tile benefits that it offers over other flooring materials. Although we still love authentic hardwood flooring, there are many situations where LVT may be a better option.
When it comes to luxury vinyl tile benefits, this is the one we cite most often. Quality LVT is virtually impervious to water. Your pet’s nails won’t likely damage it. And, if you happen to spill tomato sauce, red wine, or other high-stain materials, your LVT flooring will repel the spill. Plus, quality LVT can last up to 20 or 30 years!
Many of our customers prefer LVT because of the quicker installation process. Installing tile or hardwood flooring is more time consuming than installing LVT. In fact, depending on the space, we may be able to complete a luxury vinyl tile installation in just one or two days. Wood and tile can take at least three days for installation, but often longer.
Virtually Maintenance Free
All flooring should be swept regularly and mopped when necessary. With LVT, that’s all you’ll ever need to do. There’s no need to have grout cleaned or to refinish the flooring over time.
Some homeowners are concerned about the environmental impact of hardwood or engineered wood flooring. If this is a priority for you, know that many brands of LVT meet GREEN building standards. Plus, because it’s pre-finished, you won’t live with the VOCs (volatile organic compounds) that occur when a hardwood floor is finished on site.
If you’re looking for a floor that looks like hardwood without the risk of water damage, you will love LVT. It looks like real wood with realistic grain patterns, and quality brands like COREtec® can even feel like real wood with texture.
