LVP in your Home

What is LVP?
LVP is a type of resilient flooring known for its durability and realistic wood-like appearance. Unlike Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), which mimics the look of stone or ceramic tiles, LVPs are meant to replicate the appearance of hardwood.


LVPs typically consist of the following layers:

Backing Layer: This layer forms the base of an LVP and is usually made from foam or cork. It provides the plank with structural support and stability, while also acting as a barrier between the subfloor and the rest of the plank. It gives the plank its flexibility, which contributes to its long-lasting durability and comfort underfoot.

Core Layer: The core layer sits directly on top of the backing layer and is typically made from polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or high-density fiberboard (HDF). This layer ensures the plank maintains its shape and structure and provides resistance to denting, temperature fluctuations, and humidity.

Design Layer: This layer features a high-definition image that gives the plank its appearance. It is also often embossed with the texture of the surface it is trying to mimic to give it a more natural feel.

Wear Layer: This is the topmost layer of the LVP and is made of urethane. It helps protect the LVP against scratches, stains, and wearing.
