Top Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Tiles

Top Benefits of Luxury Vinyl Tiles

Posted by Caitlin Davis on 18th Mar 2024

What are luxury vinyl tiles?

Luxury Vinyl Tiles, known as LVT, is the most popular floor covering as of current due to its durability and affordability for both commercial and domestic spaces. A robust yet versatile alternative, LVT has the ability to form aesthetic designs as it's so easy to cut and trim down. Luxury Vinyl Tiles have the look and grain of wood flooring and the texture and feel of slate tiles.

Is LVT expensive?

Luxury Vinyl Tiles are an affordable alternative to other flooring options. Thicker LVT tends to be priced higher to represent the longevity and durability it will retain. Whereas budget options are still available with a thinner wear layer.

 

How long will LVT last for?

LVT is manufactured to withstand the constant pressure of a commercial environment, so it's also perfect in domestic settings. From excessive traffic, flame deterrence and resistance to moisture, there is not much this flooring cannot endure. With many designs being made from 100% vinyl, LVT is perfect for meeting the green building standards for commercial buildings. Whatever the space, you can be assured that you’re laying a high-quality product that is made to last.

How many colours of LVT are there?

Luxury Vinyl Tiles are the perfect option for those high-risk areas where practicality overrules design, like your kitchen or bathroom. Hard wearing and waterproof, LVT provides excellent grip and slip resistance. With hundreds of designs to choose from, it is also ideal for living spaces, bedrooms, offices and schools.

Are luxury vinyl tiles compatible with underfloor heating?

Tiles and wood flooring are well known to be cold and unsatisfactory under your feet at times. LVT provides warmth whilst the thickness of the tile adds cushioned steps. Compatible with underfloor heating, heat conducted through the flooring is effectively released to offer a warm underfoot.

Is LVT noisy to walk on?

LVT has an average thickness of 2mm, creating a significantly quieter space when walking compared to tiles, wood, and laminate. LVT has increased thickness options which absorb many sounds that are created. In commercial settings a thicker tile would be required to eliminate noise pollution which equates to an improved customer experience.

Is LVT easy to maintain?

Maintaining LVT has never been so easy. LVT has a protective layer which retains scratch, scuff, stain, chip, crack, and dent resistance. Tough marks are easily removed with our specialist cleaning range but precaution is still needed, if you want a floor covering to maintain its quality. This flooring can withstand strong chemical cleaners if a deep clean is required.

How easy is it to install LVT?

Installing LVT is much quicker compared to wood, ceramic or stone flooring. Available in click or stick down options, LVT can be installed over existing plywood or concrete subfloors if the surface is flat, smooth, and structurally sound.

Are LVT replacements easy to get hold of?

LVT replacements are sold in individual tiled packs as opposed to vinyl roll, damaging a central tile is no longer a nightmare. You can simply replace the damaged tile instead of replacing the whole floor. Please note that some ranges may get discontinued over time.

How long does LVT last for?

LVT flooring will uphold its high quality, performance and durability up to 25-30 years. All depending on traffic levels, location, and maintenance, the more care shown for the vinyl tiles means they will last longer.
