Luxury vinyl flooring is an excellent solution

Luxury vinyl flooring is so versatile that it can satisfy the needs of almost any homeowner. This flooring material is best known for its good looks, tough construction, and resistance to damage and stains. There are many styles to complement each decorating style. You can find a large selection of these styles at Carpet Image Services Inc.. Stop by today at our newly remodeled showroom in Jacksonville, FL.

Luxury vinyl planks and tiles

Vinyl plank flooring imitates hardwood, while LVT flooring mimics wood as well as stone and ceramic. Trendy styles tend to mirror the most popular hardwood styles. Oak is the long-time favorite wood species, and in contrast, greige is the newest, often chosen color. The gray flooring, highlighted by beige undertones, is a neutral color that mixes well with decor that ranges from contemporary to rustic.

Luxury vinyl flooring is made up of multiple layers

Luxury vinyl flooring is rugged because it is made up of four different materials that work well together. The backing layer supports the other layers, and it protects the core layer and the subfloor. The core layer makes up the bulk of the plank or tile. The digital image layer and the wear layer that protects it are situated above the core layer.

Core layer

Any plank or tile that has a wood-plastic composite or a stone plastic composite core is waterproof. Virtually indestructible SPC flooring is best for commercial applications. WPC flooring is somewhat softer underfoot because it includes a foaming agent. Waterproof planks and tiles do not warp, buckle, or peel even in standing water.

Textured styles

Textured planks and tiles feel like the natural materials they imitate. Embossing techniques are used to create textures that can be subtle or quite noticeable. Wire brushing and hand scraping are two contrasting wood looks. Embossed in Register (EIR) planks show off texturing aligned with the wood's grain pattern.

Installing luxury vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring is glued to the subfloor. But glue-down brands are just one type of luxury vinyl that is available. Child- and pet-friendly luxury vinyl most often comes in click and lock styles. Installers fit these planks or tiles together to construct a floor that floats over the subfloor or existing floor. Loose lay brands butt together to create a semi-permanent floor.

In addition to residential and commercial installation, locally-owned Carpet Image Services Inc. provides flooring repairs and carpet binding services.
