Floor Coverings International Western NC carries a great selection of luxury vinyl tile flooring. Luxury vinyl tile (or LVT for short) is a great choice because it can replicate the look of many other flooring types but at a lower cost. Vinyl can recreate the look of hardwood, marble, stone and much more. Many homeowners in the Asheville area choose to put vinyl in different parts of their home including the kitchen, hallways, and dining rooms.
Installation & Construction
LVT is installed with a process that’s similar to traditional vinyl tile. However, this doesn’t mean that LVT is of the same quality as vinyl tile. LVT is constructed with a much thicker base layer, in addition to a thick top glaze that helps protect against scratches and other damage. This makes LVT a much more durable flooring option than traditional vinyl. If you choose a tile that imitates stone or ceramic, you can also choose to have a plastic grout imitation installed between the tiles to make it look even more realistic.
Pros & Cons
Durability and affordability are the primary reasons that many homeowners choose LVT for the their homes. LVT is also very versatile and more moisture-resistant than hardwood, so it can even be installed in rooms like the basement, bathroom and laundry room. LVT is a relatively hard flooring, so it’s a good idea to invest in mats and rugs for areas you will be standing on for long periods of time.
