Luxury vinyl flooring in Stafford, VA from First American Carpet & Floors

Luxury vinyl flooring construction facts

Luxury vinyl flooring mimics stone and wood as well as other popular materials. Its good looks are created by an image layer and sustained by the wear layer that protects it, while much of its rugged durability is owed to a waterproof core layer cushioned by the backing layer.

A wide variety of luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring is found at First American Carpet & Floors in Woodbridge and Stafford, VA.

Wear layer

The transparent wear layer determines how long LVP and LVT flooring will last, so it is wise to choose a top-quality brand. A 20-mil wear layer will protect the high-tech image layer in even the busiest areas of your home.

In addition, some flooring manufacturers apply an additional coating to this surface layer to increase the floor's longevity.

Core layer

The 100-percent waterproof core found in the best luxury vinyl tile and plank flooring can be counted on to keep the flooring from becoming damaged when wet.

Any brand with a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core is waterproof. In addition, this floor covering can tolerate moisture for an extended period.


Luxury vinyl flooring is a versatile floor covering not only because it has a tough makeup that allows installation throughout the home but also because it is installed in three different ways.

First, loose-lay LVT flooring butts together to create a removable floor. Second, glue-down brands contrast floating floor brands that need no attachment to a subfloor.
