Luxury Vinyl gives you the look of stone or wood with the durability of vinyl. The stone look is achieved with Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT). And a wood look is achieved with a Luxury Vinyl Plank (LVP). Luxury vinyl offers 3D printing technology which adds depth and realism, durability, and a high performance wear layer to a vinyl tile product. The glue down products are virtually waterproof. Some of the newer "engineered" products have a synthetic core that is unaffected by heat and humidity. These hold up well in homes and commercial applications. So these are great products where a tough floor is needed.
