Can luxury vinyl flooring be floating?

One of the many terrific benefits of luxury vinyl (LVF) is the uncomplicated installation, especially a floating floor. This refers to when pieces click, mat, and then "float" over the subfloor without glue. It's fast and easy, and installers, especially, love it.

You'll love it too because there's no adhesive needed, and that translates to no mess to clean up. A luxury vinyl floating floor can be placed over any subfloor, including concrete, as long as it's clean, dry, and level. It's more convenient to repair, easy to remove and re-use, and quieter.

What is luxury vinyl?

If you haven't seen it yet, or if you have seen it, but it's been a while, run, don't walk to our flooring store to explore our inventory of unique products from brands like COREtec, Karastan, Pergo Extreme, and others.

The photos are highly realistic, accurate, and vivid, with nature-inspired images of wood, stone, and tile since they're taken with high-definition photography. Micro beveling and embossing add depth, dimension, and textured looks. The vinyl can be cut into strips and mounted on boards to mimic hardwood, called luxury vinyl plank, or into square, groutable tile-sized pieces, called a luxury vinyl tile.

We call LVP and LVT "affordable style" because it's so authentic-looking that even flooring experts have a hard time telling if it is from the real thing, but you'll know when you go to pay because it doesn't cost nearly the same price as genuine materials.

LVF is also 100% waterproof from bottom to top, which can be submerged or spilled on. The waterproof capability makes it the obvious choice for wet areas like the kitchen and bath, but the style makes it ideal for any room, including living spaces and bedrooms.

Ultra Durability

Five times thicker than the original product, this has a top transparent, strong melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs. LVF can also be installed via the glue-down method, and it's also easy to care for, only requiring regular sweeping and periodic mopping.
