That’s why we offer several different types of luxury vinyl flooring, including sheet vinyl, WPC, and rigid core. Here are a few things you should know about these distinguished vinyl families.
Sheet Vinyl Flooring
Sheet vinyl has been around for decades, but this family of products has definitely been refined by modern innovation. Still one of the most affordable methods of flooring, today’s sheet vinyl boasts more realistic visuals than ever before, thanks to a little help from the latest in digital printing technologies, which make it easy to attain the look of hardwood, stone, or tile. Sheet vinyl is sold in rolls that are 12-feet or 6-feet wide, making it easy to custom size for the perfect fit. It can be quickly installed and has few seams, making for an end result that’s generally waterproof. Sheet vinyl presents a perfect option for those on tighter budgets, or those who are faced with very large areas to cover.
WPC, which stands for wood plastic composite flooring, is specialty vinyl that’s beautiful enough for every space in your home, yet durable enough for heavy commercial uses. WPC is sold in both tiles and planks. It is completely waterproof and is designed to ordeal heavy wear and tear. There are many styles and colours offered up by the WPC family, including styles made to resemble stone and hardwood.
Rigid Core Flooring
Rigid core is a hybrid vinyl floor that’s one of the most durable synthetics being offered today. Unbelievably resilient, rigid core is made to resist water, resist scratches and everyday damages, and look amazing in the process. It is comfortable and quiet underfoot, with choices available in a myriad of nature-inspired styles and patterns. For these reasons, rigid core is always a smart decision, regardless of the interior space you’re working with. It is extremely easy to care for, requiring very minimal maintenance.
