LVT could be the floor covering you’ve been searching for

 
With LVT (luxury vinyl tile), you get a vast number of options and plenty of benefits. It covers so many requirements and preferences that some homeowners have become quite loyal to the material, only changing the look when it’s time to replace the flooring. There’s hardly a rival for this material, especially if you are in need of something that fits into a smaller budget but that offers a lot of bang for your buck. It’s definitely worth the time taken to do a bit of research, so let’s look at the flooring a bit deeper.

The construction you’ll find in LVT is where many of the benefits come from, especially in durability and stability. This material features several layers, including a backing layer, a core, a vinyl design layer, and a protective topcoat. The topcoat resists stains, scratches, scuffs, and fading, leaving you with a flooring that looks great for most of its whole lifespan.

The design layer is responsible for the overall appearance of your floors. You’ll find amazing color and pattern combinations, or an amazing replication of natural flooring materials such as stone, tile, or solid hardwood. The wide variety of options you have here for appearance are perfect for any decor need, especially those that are hard to meet with many other materials.

One of the greatest benefits you’ll find in LVT flooring is the option to choose a product that is completely waterproof. This means you can floor all those spaces that have the potential to take on water damage such as basements, laundry rooms, and bathrooms. However, those certainly aren’t the only uses for this material. Consider for a moment, the ultimate peace of mind that will come if you use this floor covering throughout your entire home. Accidents can happen anywhere, and if you’re already protected before they do, it’s a real win. Offering one of the longest lifespans in the product line, you’ll be glad you made the choice.

At Reinhart Carpet Outlet, we offer an exceptional assortment of flooring materials and services with more than 100 years of experience behind us.

Vinyl flooring is an increasingly popular choice among homeowners, and there are many good reasons behind its rise in popularity. With vinyl floors, you can complement almost any style with the look of tile, hardwood, or a distinct aesthetic unattainable with natural flooring materials. As you are looking for durable, high-quality flooring materials for your kitchen, bathroom, and other high-use spaces in your Philadelphia home, check out the vinyl flooring selection available at Reinhart Carpet Outlet—including the beautiful choices available through Shaw Flooring Industries.
 

The Benefits of Vinyl Flooring

 
Are you often seeing spills, heavy traffic, and scratches on your floors? Vinyl can stand up to all of these common issues and remain in great condition for years to come, all with very minimal maintenance. Often, all you need to do to restore the beauty of vinyl floors is a quick sweep. In addition, you will have flexible design options within your budget, since vinyl can deliver the look of custom tile or exotic hardwood at a fraction of the cost. In addition, vinyl is perhaps the most water-resistant variety of flooring, making it perfect for higher humidity areas like the kitchen and bathroom.

Vinyl Flooring Installation Options

 
If you are in search of a flooring solution that can fit into a DIY installation plan, vinyl is the right choice for you. With three easy options for installation, you can complete your flooring project on your own. However, professional installation is also available to ensure absolute ease and convenience.
  • Plank – With interlocking planks, this type of vinyl flooring requires no glue to lay down. You simply put the planks in position and snap them into place, and your flooring will be even and secured.
  • Tile – Similar to planks, vinyl tiles may be locked together for glueless installation, or you might choose peel and stick tiles or even groutable vinyl tiles that will look even more like porcelain or natural stone flooring.
  • Sheet – Sheet vinyl can be ideal for commercial and residential applications. It comes in woodgrain, tile, or paver style designs, and it offers the most conventional installation process with flooring adhesive.

Vinyl Style Choices
Whether you choose plank, tile, or sheet installation, you can have vinyl mimic the look of almost any hardwood specie in any stain from light and natural to bold and dark. If tile flooring is a more favorable aesthetic, choose vinyl styled to look like your favorite natural stone or elegantly crafted ceramic tiles. With these looks, you can create a timeless aesthetic that will put years before your next flooring installation project.
