What is the life expectancy of luxury vinyl flooring?

Luxury vinyl tile or plank can last over 20 years when installed correctly.

It’s like anything: the better you take care of it, the longer it lasts.

A regular sweeping and periodic mopping will do the trick. Stains wipe off easily like lipstick and crayons, usually with a baking soda paste.

The secret’s in the durability

Any vinyl is strong, but this version is layered and five times thicker than the original product. At the top is a transparent, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches, scuffs, and dents at the top.

Pets, who we know can be tough on floors, don't faze them. Neither do pull-toys, dropped pot and pans, running and jumping kids, etc.

No damage to the luxury vinyl plank! A clear urethane finish adds extra strength and shine.

Waterproof adds to the durability

There are no peeling or curled edges because they can withstand floods, leaks, and spills. But, of course, that also adds to the visuals; who wants a dingy, badly-in-need-of-repair floor?

What is luxury vinyl style?

If you haven't seen it yet, run to our flooring store to take a look. You'll see brands like Karastan-LuxeCraft and more. It offers true-to-life echoes of wood, stone, and tile.

They're taken digitally and have micro beveling and embossing for depth, dimension, and textured looks. The material is cut into planks (LVP) or tile-sized squares (LVT).

It's so realistic sometimes the flooring experts have difficulty telling it from the real thing. You'll know, however, when you go to pay. It's very affordable.
