Luxury Vinyl Flooring
As the floor covering industry builds on a customer's passion and lifestyle trends, we still find that durability is king. In comes luxury vinyl plank and tile, often referred to as LVP or LVT. We all know that vinyl is resilient, which is why its called resilient flooring. But consumers find it hard to consider installing vinyl in a home. Manufacturers such as Southwind, Happy Feet, COREtec, and Karndean have put a new twist to this delimma. Luxury vinyl tile and plank are pieces of cut vinyl that closely relate to an actual piece of tile or hardwood plank. We've been installing hardwood and laminate flooring for years, but can't seem to get the performance that the typical homeowner needs. It's easy to conclude that color, design, and durability are the backbone to every household project. Luxury vinyl offers all of these aspects.
By having individual plank and tiles, the luxury vinyl can be sifted through to give the consumer the best realistic flooring possible, just as tile, stone, or hardwood does. The luxury vinyl tile (LVT) can even be grouted like a traditional tile, using an acrylic grout, that comes in numerous colors. Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) typically only has a pattern repeat every 8 boards, so a mixture during installation projects a "real" flooring result. And what would a flooring be without some kind of texture? LVP and LVT are embossed on the surface, meaning they have the texture of a tile or hardwood. This maximizes the consumer's ability to achieve realistic qualities. LVP and LVT have expanded into a new form called WPC (wood plastic composite), SPC, and Rigid Core. These concepts make the LVP more geared for comfort and floating capabilities, not to mention making them waterproof. Waterproof luxury vinyl is the most recent specification added to make the product more durable. Because imports are cheap to produce, manufacturers are switching to vinyl as a discounted flooring option. Customers have taken the challenge to expand with new flooring options, and are pleased with the results. Georgia Carpet has rallied to stock over 1 million sq/ft of LVP, LVT, WPC, and Rigid floors.
