So you are looking for durable flooring? Let Sistare Carpets Inc help you with your search. We know all about luxury vinyl flooring. We recommend it as a durable flooring for you.


Due to its waterproof nature, luxury vinyl has been a consistent choice for kitchens, basements, and bathrooms for decades. Any suitable flooring comes with a lifetime warranty. Because of its waterproof ability, it can readily go into any room in your home.


Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) and luxury vinyl tile (LVT) can come in various sizes and shapes. They are scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, and beautiful. Sometimes, you need a good sweeping to clean them and light moping if you have a spill. The thicker the flooring, the more durable it will be. Most LVF starts at 8 millimeters thickness. However, you can get 20 millimeters of thickness, which will add to the floor's life and its ability to absorb sound, making for a quieter room. The design layer of the flooring is protected by the top layer, which is thick by at least 20 millimeters.


Due to the technology of today, the imaging layer of LVF can mimic anything. With LVP, it can mimic any wood-look species, from cherry to walnut, to hickory, to oak. LVT can mimic any stone, tile, or brick look with exacting detail. Of course, LVT can mimic wood as well. The floors are usually embossed and micro-beveled to give them an aged look.
