Luxury Vinyl Flooring Guide

We have a flooring option here for everyone at Hamilton Carpet One Floor & Home in Maspeth, NY. We carry a large selection of luxury vinyl flooring for you to take a look at. Luxury vinyl is a new alternative to natural stone and hardwood flooring, not just because it is budget friendly but because of its unmatched durability. You can have both durability along with premium hardwood and natural stone looks with luxury vinyl.

Luxury vinyl’s durability comes from the synthetic materials used in its construction. The scratch and scuff resistant wear layer protects the wood or stone look image underneath, to keep your floors looking spectacular. Luxury vinyl floors are backed with multiple support layers that give the planks and tiles extra stability. There are even waterproof options with cores that are made from materials such as PVC composites. These waterproof options feature a rigid core and are perfect for active families.

Where Can Luxury Vinyl Be Installed?

Since luxury vinyl flooring is so durable, you can install it in high traffic areas such as hallways and entryways. You can even have wood look floors installed in your bathroom, laundry room, and kitchen to create a unified look in your home. Since luxury vinyl features a slightly cushioned backing, they are even comfortable enough to be installed in bedrooms and living rooms.

Types of Luxury Vinyl

Luxury vinyl flooring is available in two different options including luxury vinyl planks and luxury vinyl tiles. Luxury vinyl planks mostly come in wood and tile look options, whereas luxury vinyl tiles mostly replicate the looks of tile and stone.

Is Luxury Vinyl Waterproof?

Customers ask us quite often if luxury vinyl flooring is waterproof. For the most part, all luxury vinyl floors are considered moisture resistant, but there are luxury vinyl options that are considered waterproof. Waterproof flooring has a watertight surface and a strong waterproof core that prevents the planks and tiles from ever expanding or contracting when exposed to moisture. This core also stops moisture from reaching the subfloor, and makes wiping up spills easy. Waterproof flooring is a great option for homeowners who have children and pets in the household.
