Time to consider luxury vinyl flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring (LVF), sometimes referred to as vinyl plank flooring (LVP) or LVT flooring, is a material that does check all the boxes. It is 100% waterproof, making it ideal for the kitchen, bath, or laundry room, but it has such a high-end, sophisticated style that homeowners now use LVF for their living and dining areas, bedrooms, and sunrooms. Not all vinyl is the same, however, so be sure to get authentic luxury vinyl. This is what our customers tell us.
Image is everything!
LVF is an amazing true-to-life echo of wood, tile, or stone. It is so realistic that even experts sometimes have difficulty telling that from genuine materials, but you won’t pay anywhere near the real thing’s price. Taken with 3D photography, you will see knots, grains, swirls, veining variations, vibrant colors, and bold patterns. Micro beveling and embossing add depth and dimension and textured appearances such as wire-brushed hand-scraped, weathered or distressed. If you don’t see all this, ask why, because it may not be real LVF.
You have the design option of the material being cut into planks to mimic hardwood boards (LVP) or square, groutable tile-sized pieces (LVT). Many feel the extra seams add to the realism, with some taking it even further by using grout with the tile pieces. Others prefer plank for a stone mimic because of the larger format and fewer seams that give it a more continuous look like a stone slab.
Where to Use Luxury Vinyl Flooring
Luxury vinyl flooring does well in high-traffic areas that are prone to spills. It does well in areas such as your kitchen, bathroom, entryway or playroom because it is durable and easy to maintain. Luxury vinyl flooring is great for areas that are frequently populated by children and pets. It also does well in laundry rooms because it is typically very moisture resistant and can withstand heavy-duty use. Because it is attractive and comfortable to walk on, it will do well in many areas of your home.

Installing Luxury Vinyl Flooring
There are several ways to install luxury vinyl flooring. Professionals may glue the planks into place. They may use a “click lock” method which involves using pieces that lock together and float on top of the subfloor. There is also an option for loose lay planks, which are heavier and lay on top of the existing floor without an adhesive. Each of these methods has its pros and cons but proper installation is always important. Talk to a professional, like the experts at Twin Brother Flooring, to figure out which installation method is right for your space. Get a free estimate today!

This waterproof material is multi-layered with a clear melamine wear sheet at the top to protect the floor from scratches and scuffs. It also keeps spills sitting there, waiting to be wiped off. This vinyl is thicker than standard; it should be at least 8-mm or higher, while the wear layer should measure at least 20-mils.
It is also low maintenance, with just a daily sweeping and weekly mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner required. Installation can be a fast and uncomplicated floating floor where the pieces click together and then hover over the subfloor without nails or glue. The subfloor needs mainly to be clean, dry, and level.
Sometimes our professional installers will sand the subfloor to level it out; otherwise, imperfections will telegraph to the surface floor and affect appearance and performance.
