Since luxury vinyl tile and plank materials contain air pockets, expansion is possible. And expansion can cause problems like warping and wrinkling.
The good news is that there are ways to avoid expansion and the problems it can cause. The more you know about it, the better you can plan as you shop for your new flooring.
Acclimation is important
The acclimation process works for luxury vinyl much as it does for hardwood. The service can take up to three days for wood floors, but for LVT flooring, 72 hours works well.
The acclimation helps to equalize humidity in the materials and environment. And once acclimated, you won't have to worry about expansion in your flooring.
Enjoying the benefits of luxury vinyl
These floors offer impressive benefits that you'll enjoy for up to 20 years or more. A stunning visual helps you create a decor match in any room.
But you'll also enjoy impressive durability that keeps your floors looking great. Wear resistance, and complete waterproof protection help make these floors a valuable investment.
Professional installation works
Professional installation is the best way to protect luxury vinyl plank and tile. This ensures your flooring functions properly, with warranties for products and work.
The installation also ensures the manufacturer's warranty. And if you have questions about the service, be sure to ask while you're here.
