Residential Luxury Vinyl Tile Flooring (LVT) are available in a wide variety of colors and finishes allowing homeowners to achieve the intriguing floor design of their dreams with ease. The colors found in residential luxury vinyl tile flooring (LVT) are homogeneous. In other words, the colors penetrate completely through the material preventing and obscuring damage caused by scratching or gouging. Residential luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) are manufactured using vinyl resins and fillers. The quality of the material can vary widely based on physical composition, constituent materials, and the level of wear protection added to its surface.
Virtually any image can be imprinted on residential luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) using a printing process called rotogravure. This allows homeowners to use residential vinyl tiles to achieve the look of realistic simulated natural hardwood, weathered stone, or marble at a fraction of the cost. Designer residential luxury vinyl tiles can also be made with printed images of rivers stones, grass, or mosaic images for a truly unique look.
Residential luxury vinyl tile is easy to clean and generally does not require stripping or polishing. It is important to choose a residential luxury vinyl tile with a high quality wear layer for durability and longevity. There are two types of wear layers: poly-vinyl chloride and urethane. Urethane wear layers are the optimal choice because urethane creates a surface over the vinyl providing a stronger and more durable seal.
There are also three grades of wear layer thickness available in residential luxury vinyl floor tiles. Grade 1 is the thickest wear layer available on the market. It is appropriate for light commercial and high traffic residential flooring. Grade 2 is thinner and it is recommended for medium traffic residential installations. Grade 3 is the thinnest wear level and it is recommended for low to mid level residential traffic areas.
Residential luxury vinyl tiles (LVT) cannot be refinished, so the quality of the vinyl is very important. The expert staff at My Way Carpet Floors & More can help you to choose the best quality residential vinyl tile for your home flooring needs.
