Luxury vinyl in Houston, TX from Carpet Giant

What are some essential facts about luxury vinyl flooring?

If you're considering luxury vinyl and specifically rigid core flooring, there are some critical facts that you might want to know as you begin your shopping experience. These floors offer excellent opportunities for bold, beautiful visuals, superior functionality, and a fantastic lifespan, but let's find out even more.

Rigid core flooring facts

Rigid core flooring has an enhanced core construction that provides a much more stable experience underfoot, less flexibility, and a sturdier feel. This engineered vinyl floor covering is perfect for a real-feel plank experience, especially for the wood-look option.

You are most likely to see these floors made of stone plastic composite, also known as SPC flooring. They generally consist of an attached underlayment, a rigid core, a vinyl topcoat, and a top wear layer.

The wear layer offers excellent scratch and stain resistance but remains transparent to allow the beautiful visual layer to show through. This is where you find the wood or stone appearance that makes a perfect match for any décor and is thoroughly protected, especially from wear.

Rigid core materials offer an excellent waterproof characteristic and help with a quieter experience, a more comfortable step, and easy cleanup, even in your busiest areas. If these attributes sound like a good match for your requirements, be sure to stop by and speak with one of our flooring professionals for more information.
