Vinyl flooring has come a long way since it’s debut in the 1930’s! Todays products include a ravishing lineup of Luxury Vinyl Planks designed to add the style and elegance of rich, natural materials  at a lower cost. Most LVP’s are constructed to withstand commercial wear and tear so it makes it ideal for residential high traffic areas! They contain specialized wear layers that offer strength, durability and resilience to the flooring that is not always provided by other materials. Because LVP’s are inherently water resistant simple damp mopping is all that is needed for cleaning, making it ideal for those of us who do not wish to spend an entire Saturday catching up on the week’s messes!

One of our favourite producers of this eco-friendly product are 4 Corners. They have several lines of products with a wide array of styles including distressed wood finishes. The mid and top lines provide great thermal conductivity and are suitable for underfloor radiant heating! Their lines have the ability to be floating floors (or loose lay) so it makes them optimal for the do-it-yourself homeowners, renters or business owners – this aspect also allows for easy change if you decide to re-decorate down the road!

Our favourite part of  their products is that their most economical line (Country Club) includes a  10 year commercial / 15 year residential warranty, their mid-range line (Bel-Air) includes a 15 year commercial / 20 year residential warranty and their flagship product Malibu includes a 15 year commercial / Lifetime residential warranty! With the eco-friendly, cost effective and anti-bacterial benefits, lengthy warranties are the icing on the cake!
