What are LVT & LVP?








What are LVT & LVP?



LVT & LVP have grown 14% over the past few years and are continuing to grow as a versatile, durable line of flooring.  LVT & LVP are layered vinyl planks and tiles that install as easily as laminate flooring, but are more water-resistant than fiberboard.  LVT & LVP are made up of a transparent wear layer, a patterned image, a fiberglass core, and a support base.

At Carpet Den Flooring America you can shop three amazing collections of hundreds of different colorways in LVT & LVP.  We feature Downs, Mannington Adura, Stainmaster, and Congoleum DuraCeramic & DuraPlank flooring collections.  The exclusive Downs Luxury Vinyl collection arrived in our showroom last week and adds a whole new line of fine LVT & LVP looks and styles to suit your needs.  Stop in and take home a sample of Downs Luxury Vinyl Tiles to see how this beautiful new collection can transform the look of your home while maintaining the durability that you need.


Downs Luxury Vinyl Tile & Planks is one of the most durable and easy to install vinyl floors ever produced.  The unique click system, stunning visuals, comfort and quiet underfoot, along with our best Five Star “Lifetime” warranty add up to a great hard surface product that will work for any area of the home.  Downs LVT will not expand, curl or shrink when exposed to water assuring that it will stand up to the busiest kitchen or bath.  Downs LVT is easier to clean and maintain than many other floors even in an active household.
