Luxury vinyl flooring
is composed of four layers: base, core, design, and wear. The base and core layers are important because they give the flooring stability and help it lay flat on the subfloor. But it is the wear layer that determines the durability of any brand. A 12 mil wear layer can adequately protect the design layer. But 20 mil or higher is better in high traffic areas, especially if you have pets. If you see terms like 'diamond-hardened’ or ‘titanium top coating’ when you are comparing brands, it means that the wear layer has a protective coating. This coating gives the design layer extra protection. If a brand has a wood plastic composite core or a stone plastic composite core, it is waterproof. It won’t buckle, warp, or swell when covered by standing water.
