Vinyl can be used in all rooms

Vinyl flooring is a versatile product that can be used throughout the home. When this floor covering was first introduced decades ago, designs were flat. Today, advanced printing technology produces designs with deep embossing that realistically imitate stone, ceramic, and wood flooring. Prianti’s Flooring is a vinyl flooring retailer that has the expertise to guide you in finding the right brand for your home. We have a showroom in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, that has a large selection of vinyl, carpet, laminate, hardwood, and more.

Luxury vinyl composition

Standard vinyl comes in rolls that are cut to size and then glued to the subfloor. Luxury vinyl is available in tiles that typically look like stone or ceramic and planks that mimic various species of hardwood. Some brands are glued to the subfloor. Other brands are designed to fit together in tongue and groove style. Then the finished floor floats over the subfloor. Luxury vinyl is thicker and more durable than standard vinyl, and designs are more realistic. It is stain, scratch, and abrasion-resistant. Typically, it has four layers:

  • Wear layer - transparent top coating that protects the design; thicker is better
  • Design layer - realistic image
  • Core layer - gives flooring strength and stability
  • Base layer - helps flooring lay flat and level

Waterproof vinyl

You can count on any type of vinyl flooring to repel water. But some luxury vinyl provides additional protection against moisture or liquid spills. It won't warp, buckle, or swell even if soaked in water for long periods. Luxury vinyl flooring is waterproof if it has one of two types of core material: wood plastic composite (WPC) that contains recycled wood pulp and stone plastic composite (SPC) that contains limestone powder. Many brands are backed by warranties of 15- to 30-years or more.
