What is LVP?

luxury vinyl plank

Luxury Vinyl Plank, or LVP, is the fastest-growing category of flooring thanks to its durability, affordability, and style. LVP grants homeowners the look and feel of traditional hardwood flooring with natural wood plank widths and features, without the upkeep or warping. Made with a strong core of high-density fiberboard and PVC vinyl, LVP is stable, flexible, and water-resistant.

While LVP appears highly realistic with wood grain patterns on the surface, its three-layer construction is stronger and more long-lasting than Mother Nature’s raw materials. On the surface, a protective wear layer allows for easy cleaning and scratch-resistance. An additional middle clear film layer protects against deeper damages, such as rips and tears. The bottom layer provides tile backing with up to 70% ground limestone for an ultra-durable foundation. With combined beauty and strength, LVP is an ideal choice for high-traffic, pet-friendly spaces and coastal North Carolina locales.

Is LVP right for me?
If you’re looking for flooring that can withstand the test of time, provide a gorgeous wood look, and absorb shock and sound – all for an affordable price, then you may want to consider LVP flooring. LVP is being embraced by everyone, from interior designers and flooring experts to homeowners and remodelers. With its cost-effectiveness, durability, and longevity, it’s no wonder LVP is a top choice for bustling downtown Wilmington rentals, Topsail Beach getaways, and family homes across southeastern North Carolina area. Beyond this, LVP’s waterproof and easy-to-clean surface is especially attractive to those living near the coast.
