Is luxury vinyl flooring durable?

Luxury vinyl flooring continues to grow in popularity because it satisfies homeowner 'wants.' Specifically, homeowners want attractive, long-lasting flooring that keeps looking "like-new" throughout the years. Multi-layer luxury vinyl resists stains and wear from daily activities. The best brands, which are usually waterproof, have a 25-year lifespan. First American Carpet & Floors offers a great selection of wood and tile looks luxury vinyl flooring from top companies like Mohawk. We have a showroom in Woodbridge and Stafford, Virginia.


Luxury vinyl plank flooring mimics many wood species, including perennial favorites like oak, maple, and hickory. LVP can be smooth or textured. Wirebrushed and handscraped textures are trendy. Finishes range from matte to high gloss. Usually, LVP is designed for floating floor installation. Since planks interlock rather than attach to a subfloor, floors can be constructed over cement slabs and existing hard surface flooring. In addition, a plank that becomes damaged can be easily replaced.

Tile look

Like planks, luxury vinyl tile is composed of four layers. The best LVT flooring has a thick wear layer to protect the ceramic, stone, or cement image layer. A 20-mil thickness is ideal for high-traffic areas. To ensure maximum durability, choose a waterproof brand. These brands often have a stone plastic composite (SPC) core or a wood-plastic composite (WPC) core protected by the backing layer. Choose virtually indestructible SPC flooring for commercial applications.
