What is Vinyl?

Modern vinyl flooring is made up of multiple layers that all play individual roles in building one product. The base of vinyl planks varies from cork to rubber, and the center made from virgin PVC. A high-definition image layer replicates stone or wood. To top it off, the wear layer is a transparent plastic film that, depending upon how thick it is, determines the strength of your floors. Choose from several types of vinyl flooring, including vinyl plank and vinyl tile. 

Is Luxury Vinyl Water Resistant?

Every vinyl floor can withstand moisture, but select products are proven to go that extra mile. Water resistant vinyl flooring products are armed with a few additional features to avoid damaging your floors from splashes and spills from children or pets when cleaned up in a timely manner. These vinyl planks and tiles have a reinforced cork backing and an ultra-resilient core. With these formidable weapons, wetness won’t stand a chance.
