Why luxury vinyl flooring is a fit for Wilmington, NC, homes

Why luxury vinyl flooring is a fit for Wilmington, NC, homes

Luxury vinyl is a stylish and functional floor covering ideal for your coastal abode. This durable, cost-effective, and low-maintenance flooring is available in various style options. Wood-look plank or tile and natural stone look tile are trendy.

Carpet Smart serves the Wilmington, NC, area where we offer the latest luxury vinyl styles and more. LVP flooring is available in numerous wood species like oak and hickory. Choose LVT flooring for marble, travertine, slate, granite, and other popular stones.


Choose a high-quality LVP or LVT brand with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core, and your new luxury vinyl floor will be waterproof. A WPC core includes wood byproducts, while an SPC core includes limestone. SPC flooring is more robust.


The core is just one of the four luxury vinyl plank or tile layers. Because of the surface wear layer, you can expect a luxury vinyl floor to hold up against high traffic and Mother Nature. 'Salt, sea, and sand' won't damage luxury vinyl tile or plank flooring. A 20-mil wear layer is ideal.

Cushioned footsteps

Planks and tiles also have a backing layer that protects the flooring and the subfloor from wear. This bottom layer provides cushioning as well. As a result, the floor feels good underfoot, and your footsteps are quiet, too, since the foam or cork backing muffles noise.
