Luxury Vinyl offers the visual effect of hardwood flooring while keeping practical and cost effective benefits in mind. LVP, LVT & LVF are other terms you might hear when researching Luxury Vinyl. Luxury Vinyl by nature is water proof though not water tight. Luxury Vinyl overall thickness ranges from 2mm in glue down applications up to as thick as 8.5mm for floating applications IF the underlayment is attached & being included in that spec. Additionally the wear layer can range from 4mil (that's mil NOT mm for Millimeter) up to as thick as a 30mil wear layer. The overall thickness of material generally has very little to do with overall quality though it is a good idea to avoid the very thinnest. Generally 6 mil & below should be used in residential only application and it's ideal to find a 12 to 20 mil wear layer. With the wear layer on Luxury Vinyl there is no required maintenance such as waxing, polishing or refinishing. Instead simply sweep, Swiffer or mop with your preferred cleaning solution, sit back & relax. At The Floor Trader you will find dozens of in-stock popular options.
