Is luxury vinyl flooring durable?

Luxury vinyl mixes well with any lifestyle and room decor. Luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile flooring show off a high-end look, and with their rugged composition, four-layer LVP and LVT are ideal for high-traffic areas. In addition, the best brands are waterproof. Thus, the budget-, pet-, and child-friendly flooring can be installed from the basement to the attic. Heath Flooring Concepts in Dallas, Georgia, has the 'just right' flooring for every space in your home.


25-year warranties back these high-quality planks and tiles. These durable brands have a thick transparent wear layer to protect the image layer from stains and abrasion. The most popular brands imitate wood and stone flooring, but other styles, like ceramic and cement, are available. A 20-mil wear layer is best for high-traffic areas like a kitchen or bathroom.

Waterproof brands

The lifespan won't be shortened by moisture when you choose waterproof LVP and LVT. This type of flooring can even tolerate standing water for an extended period. Waterproof planks and tiles have a wood plastic composite (WPC) core layer protected by the backing layer. This type of core includes a foaming agent that adds cushioning.


Planks and tiles come in the floating floor and glue-down brands. Floating floor luxury vinyl is ideal for installation over cement slabs and existing hard surface flooring. Underlayment, or padding, is placed beneath this type of flooring. Underlayment enhances a floor's performance and thus, maximizes durability. It also provides thermal and sound insulation and comfort underfoot.
