LVT (Luxury Vinyl Tiles and Woodstrip)
This product is very popular in the UK and has become more popular here in the last few years.
This suits all heavy traffic areas in Domestic and Commercial installations. It’s most popular in wood effect look in domestic areas.
In domestic locations it is mainly sold with a click system which means it can be loose laid on top of underlay. It is a water proof product compared to laminate and is quite soft to walk on. Generally it is more expensive type of vinyl.
There are different types of vinyl flooring with different uses.
Commercial Vinyl locations
Usually a dry back finish which means it’s installed by gluing down all over, this means is it not as soft to walk on.
Domestic Vinyl locations
In domestic locations we find vinyl is mainly used in bathrooms and kitchens. The main advantages are they are water proof, cost effective and easy installed (mainly loose laid) and soft underfoot.
Some things to keep in mind when purchasing a Vinyl Floor;
- Sub Floor needs to be level. If concrete floor it needs to be smooth and if the floor is tongue and grove it needs to be even.
- The wear layer needs to be good and the vinyl shouldn’t be too soft particularly in kitchen areas as it can mark with furniture, so we recommend solid and strong.
- Joins should be avoided if possible particularly in main traffic areas.
