Luxury vinyl flooring has so many benefits that there is something for everyone to love! Every homeowner can agree that luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring brings a sophisticated look to your home, just like the wood and tile flooring it imitates.

Trendy luxury vinyl flooring styles are numerous at family-owned Carpetime in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Tough wear layer

Durability is determined by the transparent wear layer found on the surface of planks and tiles. Pick a brand with a thick 20-mil wear layer; the wood, ceramic, concrete, or stone image beneath it will be well-protected from scratches, stains, and daily wear.

Some LVP brands have a clear coating on the wear layer to add extra protection.

Waterproof core

The core layer is situated beneath the image layer, and if it is a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core, the plank or tile is waterproof.

WPC flooring is usually installed in homes and includes a foaming agent to add comfort underfoot. While this floor covering is quite durable, SPC flooring is superior and, thus, suitable for commercial use.


Waterproof LVP and LVT flooring, available in two designs, can be installed in any home area. Glue-down styles contrast floating floor styles that require no attachment to the subfloor since planks and tiles click and lock together.

Underlayment is either attached or laid beneath the flooring to provide comfort underfoot, thermal insulation, and sound dampening.
