LVT Flooring FAQ
Vinyl and luxury vinyl flooring have different installation options and lifespans. Standard vinyl, or cushioned vinyl, is cheaper, thinner, and can last 10 to 15 years, usually installed using adhesives. Whereas luxury vinyl offers floating installation on top of other flooring and is usually installed via interlocking systems to last more than 25 years. Additionally, luxury vinyl possesses innovative top layers for style, texture, and durability, making it the better investment for stylish homes.
If cost is key, laminate is usually the cheaper option. However, if water resistance, longevity and durability for years to come are your priority, then vinyl flooring wins every time. Unlike laminate, luxury vinyl is durable and stable, heat and water-resistant, plus vinyl click systems are easy to install and maintain. Another consideration is that laminate flooring is better suited to light traffic homes, as not as hard-wearing as vinyl.
Most luxury vinyl flooring is not hard to install and is ideal for DIYers. For instance, Quick-Step and BerryAlloc use clever LVT click systems where the planks and tiles interlock to create watertight, real-look flooring. Amtico offers LVT Click Smart with rigid core technology, and Karndean likewise with LVT click and lock floors. COREtec was designed with easy installation in mind and uses COREtec® click connections. Proving luxury vinyl is, by design, an excellent choice for straightforward installation.
