Ready to update your home? Need a change of scenery? Carpet showing age, track marks, and fading in color? If you’re in the market for a new flooring surface then consider luxury vinyl tile (LVT) to fit your needs. Unlike the vinyl of the past, LVT flooring can be designed to fit almost any look you’re hoping to achieve. The installation process, durability, ease of cleanliness, and adaptability all differ from original vinyl flooring surfaces and along with the price tag should make LVT flooring one of your top considerations.
Luxury vinyl tile installation is much more seamless than hardwood flooring and depending on your current floor type, may be able to be placed over top of an existing surface. Both factors significantly reduce the amount of labor required simply to prepare a home or office for the installation process.
In addition, the groutwork required is similar to regular tile after the pattern has been laid out. Instead of rolling out the new flooring surface in sheets, as was the old method, LVT is individual tiles depending on your desired pattern.
Similar to carpet, light colored vinyl flooring is prone to fading over time. Any white surfaces may tend to develop a yellow tint after years of use but neither is the case with new LVT flooring. The colors selected will not fade and even a white tile will hold its color over the life of the surface.
Care and Cleanliness
Cleaning vinyl plank flooring ranks as one of the easiest flooring types to keep well manicured. A regular sweep and occasional mop will keep your floors looking like new. The vinyl tile surfaces can also be vacuumed and their low profile assists the cleaning process.
Unlike the vinyl flooring of old which was installed in big sheets and any damage required a replacement of the entire surface or unsightly patch, LVT flooring is much easier to manage. While the vinyl will not crack, a deterrent for regular tile, if punctured or damaged for any reason the specific tile affected can be replaced instead of the entire section.
Being able to seamlessly make repairs allows for the new LVT flooring to be extremely more adaptable than vinyl flooring of the past. Although LVT flooring is extremely durable and will withstand a significant amount of abuse, should any repairs be necessary this new flooring is well worth the advantages and improvements which have been achieved over time.
