Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT) Flooring vs Alternative Flooring Options

by Rob McKechnie

Luxury Vinyl Tiling (LVT) flooring uses 3D printing technology to create realistic designs that incredibly replicates the style of wood and stone but also offers its own benefits that make it a more practical choice of floor.

LVT is made up of several unique layers that work harmoniously together to provide a hard wearing, durable solution that is highly resistant to a variety of wear and tear.

Some examples of the layers offer a UV Coating, Resistance to Wear, Decor Paper, PVC Backing and Underlay. LVT brands do differ in design and production, but most take a multi-layer approach that.

Generally, the actual design surface is protected by a transparent sheet that takes the brunt of the use, helping to reduce the marks and scratches to keep the floor looking sharp for a long period of time. Behind the design is a super absorbent backstop and sometimes various other supporting layers that have their own benefits.
