Luxury vinyl flooring in Cincinnati, OH from Bush Flooring Center

Is the luxury vinyl flooring ‘wear-layer’ important?

Luxury vinyl
is a type of flooring that is tough to beat since it boasts a versatility that allows it to satisfy almost every homeowner's need. Plus, luxury vinyl flooring has an upscale look that enhances any decorating style and is durable and easy to clean.

Family-owned Bush Flooring Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, has the style you're looking for to elevate your home decor.

Multiple layers

Vinyl plank flooring and tiles are composed of four layers, each of which has a vital function. First, the backing layer protects the core layer, which repels water if it is a wood plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core.

The high-tech image layer is positioned above the core layer and mimics flooring materials like wood, ceramic, cement, and stone.

Wear layer

The transparent wear layer protects the image layer so it does not become stained, scratched, scuffed, or damaged by daily use. Since the thickness of the wear layer determines the durability, it's prudent to invest in a top-notch LVT flooring brand that has at least a 20-mil wear layer.

In addition, some flooring has a coating on top of the wear layer to increase durability. Expect your new high-quality floors to last 25 years or more.

More benefits

In addition to a waterproof core and a rugged wear layer, you enjoy a choice of installation methods when you opt for luxury vinyl flooring. For example, most vinyl plank flooring is designed for floating floor installation, which means planks are connected rather than attached to the subfloor.

Luxury vinyl tile is more likely to be glued to the surface beneath it, although many floating floor styles are available, too.
