Waterproof Luxury Vinyl Flooring is Practical

Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is child-and pet-friendly. In addition to active households, this practical floor covering benefits frequent vacationers, people who live in flood-prone areas, and anyone who wants to be proactive in preventing floor-damaging mishaps. With a waterproof floor, you no longer need to worry about plumbing problems and dinner or birthday party accidents. While it can be placed anywhere in the home, waterproof luxury vinyl is particularly practical for kitchens and bathrooms. Music City Building Supply, located in Shelbyville, Tennessee, offers a wide selection of luxury vinyl flooring. We also provide a range of other flooring products like laminate, carpet, and hardwood. Our experienced installers can handle any project.

Luxury Vinyl

Luxury vinyl planks (LVP) mimic hardwood planks. Advanced printing technology, that includes deep embossing, creates images on vinyl that realistically imitate various wood grains and textures. Luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are just as effective at imitating natural stone and ceramic. Many colors, styles, and textures are available. This resilient floor covering stands up well to all types of abrasion, including scratches and dents. Standard vinyl, thinner than LVP and LVT, is installed in sheets. Luxury vinyl flooring usually clicks together so that installers can place the floor above the subfloor. This floating floor can be installed on top of some existing floors as well as radiant heat. Many brands have a lifetime warranty while others are backed with 30-year or 15-year warranties.

Core Construction

Luxury vinyl flooring has four layers: base, core, image, and wear. Often, an attached cork or foam backing provides extra cushioning, insulation, and moisture protection. Standard sheet vinyl flooring is water-resistant while many types of LVP and LVT are waterproof. These planks and tiles will not swell, regardless of how long the floor is covered in water. Therefore, waterproof luxury vinyl floors will not warp or buckle even when subjected to standing water. Core construction determines how flooring reacts to water. Any brand that is 100% vinyl is waterproof, as is any brand that is designed with one of two types of rigid core layers: stone plastic composite (SPC) and wood-plastic composite (WPC).
