"Wear layer" is a phrase you'll often hear when shopping for vinyl flooring in Auburn, Bellevue, and Lynnwood, especially the luxury version. That’s because wear layers have everything to do with durability.
Luxury vinyl flooring can have a long life span. If it's of good quality, installed correctly, and taken care of, you can expect it to last up to 25 years.
Wear layers and durability
All forms of luxury vinyl are layered. Between the printed design sheet and the top finish lies a strong, clear melamine coating–the wear layer.
This protects the floor from scratch, scuffs, and dents. The wear layer even keeps spills from absorbing.
The wear layer also has design responsibility. It's also where luxury vinyl flooring is embossed, which creates textures and other design features.
Other factors responsible for durability
The luxury version is five times thicker than the original product. Luxury vinyl flooring is also completely waterproof, whether submerged or spilled on.
Other luxury vinyl flooring benefits include:
Style: If you haven't seen it yet, visit our showroom to give your eyes a treat. The floors have incredibly realistic images of wood, stone, and tile; they also have depth, dimension, and textured looks.
You’ll see gorgeous designs, such as Treasure Grove vinyl plank flooring by Karastan, tile options, a marble-look tile echo by Pergo Extreme, and much more.
2. Affordability: It might look like genuine wood, stone, or tile, but you won't pay nearly the same price.
3. Low maintenance: The plank or tile forms need regular sweeping and periodic mopping.
4. Uncomplicated installation. It can be glued or installed as a floating floor.
Luxury vinyl flooring is one of the most innovative products around. You can mix and match the pieces to create your unique style.
