Types of Luxury Vinyl Flooring

At Bob Wagner’s Flooring America, we carry two types of luxury vinyl flooring: luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile. Both options offer a durable flooring solution for any room in your home. Learn more about each option:

  • Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) is a popular choice for homeowners and business owners looking to mimic the look and feel of genuine hardwood flooring without the maintenance and cost. LVP is designed to replicate the natural wood grain patterns and textures of hardwood flooring but with added benefits such as water resistance, durability, and affordability.
  • Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) mimics the look and feel of natural stone and tile flooring but adds water resistance, durability, and affordability. It is ideal in bathrooms, kitchens, and other high-moisture areas. 

Waterproof Luxury Vinyl Flooring

We offer a selection of waterproof luxury vinyl flooring options for homeowners looking for added protection against moisture and spills. Waterproof luxury vinyl flooring is an excellent choice for high-moisture areas such as bathrooms, kitchens, and basements, as it can withstand water exposure without warping, buckling, or discoloring. Our waterproof luxury vinyl flooring options include both LVP and LVT, which feature a waterproof core that provides added protection against damage. Our experienced team of flooring experts can help you select the perfect waterproof luxury vinyl flooring option that fits your performance needs.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring vs. Laminate and Hardwood

When it comes to finding the right flooring for your home or business, there are several options to consider, including luxury vinyl flooring, laminate, and hardwood. While each option offers its own unique set of benefits, there are some key differences to keep in mind:

  • Luxury Vinyl vs. Laminate: Luxury vinyl flooring and laminate are both affordable flooring options that offer a similar look and feel to natural materials such as hardwood and tile. However, there are some key differences to consider. Luxury vinyl is typically more durable and water-resistant than laminate, making it ideal for high-moisture areas. Additionally, luxury vinyl flooring is available in a broader range of styles and designs than laminate, offering greater flexibility in design options. 
  • Luxury Vinyl vs. Hardwood: While hardwood flooring is a timeless and classic choice for many, luxury vinyl offers several benefits that make it a popular alternative. Luxury vinyl flooring is typically more affordable than hardwood and offers greater durability and resistance to scratches, stains, and water damage. Also, luxury vinyl is easier to install and maintain than hardwood, making it an excellent choice for homeowners looking for a low-maintenance flooring option.

Caring For Your New Luxury Vinyl Floors

One of the many benefits of luxury vinyl flooring is its low maintenance and easy care. Follow these simple steps to keep your luxury vinyl flooring looking beautiful:

  • Regular Sweeping and Vacuuming: Regularly sweep or vacuum your luxury vinyl flooring to remove dirt and debris. This will prevent scratches and scuffs from forming on the surface of your flooring.
  • Wipe Up Spills Promptly: While luxury vinyl flooring is water-resistant, it's essential to wipe up spills promptly to prevent any potential damage to the flooring. Use a damp cloth or mop to clean up spills, and avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the surface of the flooring.
  • Avoid High-Impact Activities: Luxury vinyl flooring is durable, but it's still important to avoid high-impact activities that can cause damage. This includes dragging heavy furniture across the flooring or wearing high heels on the flooring.
  • Use Felt Pads on Furniture: To prevent scratches and dents from forming on your luxury vinyl flooring, use felt pads on the bottom of your furniture legs. This will help distribute the weight of the furniture evenly and prevent any damage to the flooring.

Following these simple maintenance and care tips, you can help ensure that your luxury vinyl flooring remains beautiful and durable for years. At Bob Wagner's Flooring America, we are committed to providing high-quality luxury vinyl flooring options that are easy to maintain and care for.
