What Is “Luxury Vinyl Plank” flooring? Good Question!

Luxury Vinyl Tile (sometimes known as Luxury Vinyl Plank) was introduced as a flooring option in the 1930s. Originally known as “hot pressed tile”, that moniker was descriptive of how it is constructed. LVT/LVP is made of several layers that are fused together under heat and pressure.

In Homecrest’s Mission Point line of LVP these layers are a vinyl core base, a printed image film layer and an embossed urethane wear layer on top. The result is a durable yet flexible vinyl plank with urethane wear layer that comes in three variations based on thickness: 2mm Builder Grade that with a 12mil wear layer, 3mm Premium grade with a 20mil wear Layer, and Mission Point Plus at 5mm with a 20mil wear layer.  A variety of beautiful wood grain visuals and tiles are available in each collection. Despite the realistic appearance of wood or tile, these vinyl planks are 100% waterproof, making them easy to clean and maintain. With a glue-down installation, these planks are a good fit at any level of the home.
