Luxury vinyl is a seemingly 'made-just-for-me' floor covering that will satisfy your needs. Install a good quality plank or tile floor anywhere in your home, even in the most active areas, and it will wear well for up to 30 years.

Arrowhead Carpet & Tile in Glendale, Arizona, has the luxury vinyl plank or tile design you need to enhance your home's decor.

Image layer

Luxury vinyl flooring has four layers, including an image layer that looks like wood, stone, or ceramic or shows off an attractive patterned design.

Once this image layer is damaged by foot traffic or daily wear and tear, the floor must be removed and replaced. Thus, the quality of the transparent wear layer that covers the image layer determines the floor's longevity.

Wear layer

6-, 12-, and 20-mil wear layers on luxury vinyl tile or plank flooring are typical, and some vinyl brands even have a coating above the wear layer that offers additional protection from abrasion.

To achieve the maximum lifespan of luxury vinyl flooring, pick a plank or tile with a thick wear layer. This rugged surface layer is designed to resist scratches, scuffs, and stains, so your floor maintains its 'new' look throughout the years.

Core layer

Top-quality LVP and LVT flooring have another component that contributes to its longevity - a waterproof core. As a result, planks and tiles don't warp, buckle, shrink, or expand when water covers them.

Waterproof luxury vinyl has a wood plastic composite (WPC) core made of wood flour or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core made of limestone.
