LVT offers a range of looks from time-worn hardwood to elegant marble. Many brands are installed as floating floors, but some are glued down. Like LVP, the tile has a four-layer composition. Since the wear layer protects the design layer, thicker is better in terms of durability. A wear layer of 20-mil or more is appropriate for the most active households. Underlayment is placed beneath the flooring to absorb impact from footsteps, muffle sounds, add insulation, and make the flooring more comfortable underfoot.
The toughest vinyl floors are designed to be pet-friendly and to stand up to daily wear and tear in the busiest homes. These waterproof brands usually have a wood-plastic composite core or a stone plastic composite core. Wood byproducts are the main component in a WPC core, while an SPC core contains limestone. Vinyl flooring that includes one of these types of cores is not damaged by moisture. Planks and tiles will not warp or peel even if they are covered by standing water for an extended period.
