For homeowners desiring wood floors without the hassles of upkeep and maintenance, LVP is realistic and durable. It can be installed on any type of subfloor and comes in individual planks.These planks have a thicker construction than standard vinyl and can be made with PVC or a more rigid core called WPC. WPC stands for wood plastic composite. This combination of materials generally includes PVC, plasticizers, foaming agents, wood-like materials, and limestone. These planks are made with WPC cores that are dense and very comfortable underfoot thanks to the foaming agent that makes up the core. This foaming agent also supplies excellent sound absorption for those heavily traveled spaces. They come in many different styles and textures to resemble real wood. They are a perfect solution for homeowners wanting to continue the hardwood look they’ve created into rooms that hardwood cannot be installed.
Where planks resemble real hardwood planks, LVT flooring resembles real ceramic tile floors. These tiles come in rigid tile squares and look like real stone. Unlike stone or ceramic tile, this waterproof tile floor won’t crack or chip and does not have dirt susceptible grout. Just like the planks, this vinyl tile can come in a more hardy core option. SPC, or stone plastic composite, is primarily composed of limestone which gives it a leg up on durability over all other LVF. Though not as thick as WPC, this flooring is denser and has the option to apply acoustic backing for additional soundproofing.
