How It’s Made
Vinyl is composed of four layers:
  1. protective urethane topcoat
  2. protective clear vinyl layer
  3. printed design layer
  4. felt, cork, or fiberglass backing
LVT – a type of solid vinyl flooring – has a decorative printed film layer that is attached to a vinyl backing and from the top it’s protected with a resilient wear layer.​

Drawbacks
      • Can be difficult to repair:
        • Susceptible to:
          • Fading – caused by direct sunlight
          • Denting – caused by heavy furniture / appliances
        • Floors Etc. always recommends purchasing 2-3 extra cartons to have on hand for future repair needs.
      • Even the best LVT is unlikely to be mistaken for the material it’s imitating.
      • Minimal return on investment.
