Luxury vinyl tile, also known as LVT, is most often sought out because of its appearance. LVT can be manufactured to look just like some of the most desired natural resources available in the flooring market. These include hardwood, stone, tile, granite, marble and more. In fact, it is almost impossible to tell which is real and which is vinyl.
Luxury vinyl tile comes in a wide array of styles and can be attained when natural materials cannot. It’s thicker than ordinary vinyls, and can be placed in areas where conditions would be intolerable for their natural counterparts.
Thicker than regular vinyl, LVT has a heavy film layer covering that makes its durability almost second to none, including resistance to scratches, stains, and scuffs. The thickness also aids in its ability to absorb sound, insulate and feel very comfortable to walk on.
The biggest disadvantage of this flooring material is the fact that it conforms completely to the surface underneath. If the substrate to which it is applied is irregular, then the vinyl will be as well.
