Is the wear layer an essential part of luxury vinyl flooring?

Four layers work together to make luxury vinyl a practical and adaptable floor covering. Luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring can be placed anywhere in the home to enhance any decorating style.

Family-owned CW Floors in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, offers a wide selection of all the popular luxury vinyl flooring styles - stone, wood, and ceramic look and patterned designs made by top companies like Armstrong, Mohawk, and Mannington.

Wear layer

You walk on the transparent wear layer, which does an excellent job of shielding the image layer from stains and abrasion. Pass brands featuring a 6-mil or a 12-mil wear layer, and instead, opt for a plank or tile with a 20-mil wear layer.
Top-quality LVP and LVT, which has a lifespan of 25 years or more, often have an extra coating on top of the wear layer to provide additional protection for the image layer.

Three more layers

The core layer, protected by the backing layer, makes up the bulk of the plank or tile. Luxury vinyl flooring with a waterproof core is not damaged by liquid spills or standing water. In addition, the stone, ceramic, or wood image layer is 'photo-perfect.'

If you choose luxury vinyl tile or plank that is textured with embossing techniques to make it feel like the natural material it mimics, the quality of the floor is increased.
