Why LVT Flooring ?
LVT Flooring, or luxury vinyl tile, is a vinyl tile made of different layers that make for one of the most durable and versatile flooring materials out there. Luxury vinyl tiles and planks offer the highest levels of design and durability available in vinyl flooring. This material is designed to keep floors protected, especially in high-traffic areas. LVT gives you a less permanent floor than wood or ceramic tile, which makes the option of changing a room design that much easier.
