Luxury vinyl flooring in Sarasota, FL from Paradise Floors and More

Luxury vinyl plank and tile: What’s the difference?

The only difference is in the cut. While vinyl plank flooring is cut to mimic floorboards, LVT flooring is cut into square, tile-sized pieces. As a result, they are both forms of luxury vinyl flooring (also sometimes just called LVF) with the same basic construction and all of the benefits of this product, such as 100% waterproof capability and affordability.

High style at a budget-friendly price!

If you want gorgeous wood floors in a room like a bath that's too wet or long for marble but your wallet says no, LVF is for you. It has beautiful, nature-inspired designs, including natural materials, such as wood, stone, and tile with knots, veining variations, and vivid colors and patterns.  

It also has micro beveling, a process that angles the corners slightly to give depth and dimension and embossing, which creates textured looks, such as wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed.

We assure you, it’s not like anything you may remember from decades ago, but feel free to explore our inventory of luxury vinyl flooring in Sarasota. You'll see gorgeous designs from brands like COREtec, Cali Bamboo, Chesapeake, Armstrong, and more.

Durability enough for kids and pets

Whether you choose plank or tile, you'll always have a layered product that's five times thicker than the original vinyl. At the top is a transparent, strong, melamine wear layer that protects the floor from scratches and scuffs at the top. Over that is a clear urethane finish that adds extra shine and strength. 

True LVF measures 8-mm to 12-mm thickness, with the wear layer measuring 20-mils. LVF is also waterproof whether it's submerged or spilled on. A wipe dry, and it's OK to reuse.

LVF is also low maintenance, requiring only a daily sweeping and periodic mopping with a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Installation can be a floating floor where pieces click, mat, and hover over the subfloor without adhesives or nails. 

With decades of experience, Paradise Floors and More provides quality products, excellent technical advice, and superior services, such as craftsman-like installations, free quotes, in-house design consultants, and more.
