Today’s vinyl flooring has become one of the highest sought flooring options and for good reason: vinyl flooring is water-resistant, scratch-resistant, and extremely durable.
Vinyl is traditionally made from wood composite or plastic composite and consists of the following layers:
Wear Layer: a transparent top layer that prevents scratches, stains, and fading.
Decorative Layer: a thin, high-definition, realistic image that is adhered to the vinyl core layer.
Vinyl Core: this layer adds flexibility and is usually 100% waterproof.
Finishing Layer: this backing layer helps prevent mold and mildew growth and blocks moisture.
It’s easy to enjoy vinyl flooring, with new products regularly appearing. Luxury vinyl planks are manufactured with multiple synthetic layers and a rigid core that provides stability and durability.
