Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and luxury vinyl plank (LVP) are very popular and durable flooring products. They are 100% waterproof and offer beautiful, realistic prints such as hardwood, stone, and tile patterns. There are different types of luxury vinyl depending on the installation and the substrate being installed upon. Hiring a company with a team of professional installers will help you pick the correct luxury vinyl product to get the most out of your floorings.
Serenbe Nova flooring offers luxury vinyl planks and tiles in rigid click, loose lay, and glue-down formats. Rigid click flooring is popular for self-installation as long as the substrate is smooth and flat. This flooring “floats” as it is clicked together and gapped along the walls for expansion, as it is not attached to the substrate.
Mohawk Flooring offers luxury vinyl flooring in both rigid click and glue-down planks and tiles. Their Solidtech line is an excellent product for AllPet warrantied surfaces.

Glue down LVT and LVP are preferred for commercial installations.
