Facts to know about LVT flooring

Finding the perfect LVT flooring is a win for any remodeling project, but how do you compare the many features in this product line? The more you know about these features and what they can do for your household, the better choices you can make as you shop for your remodel.

A few facts go a long way


The LVT layer core provides strength, stability, and protection, including compositions made of wood plastic composite and stone plastic composite (WPC & SPC). Thicknesses vary, with thicker centers offering more stability and resilience while raising the luxury vinyl tile height and requiring more subfloor preparations.

While you shop for LVT flooring, you'll hear about padding, the bottom layer often attached to the floor, offering insulation and sound absorption. These can consist of foam, cork, or rubber, offer eco-friendly options, and provide antimicrobial benefits.

Pad thickness also affects comfort and noise levels, with thicker pads offering more of each benefit. However, thinner pads are more affordable and offer a faster and easier installation.

You'll also have access to various locking systems or mechanisms that hold the tiles together through installation and lifespan. Some luxury vinyl flooring options include glue-down, loose-lay, and click-lock, each offering different features and benefits.
