Is luxury vinyl a long-lasting flooring material?

Luxury vinyl offers an upscale look, great functionality, and versatility to satisfy most homeowners' needs. So it's not surprising that luxury vinyl tile and luxury vinyl plank flooring are found in many homes.

In Jackson, MI, Christoff and Sons Floorcovering offers a great selection of the trendiest luxury vinyl brands from top companies like Shaw and COREtec.

Wear layer

The highest quality luxury vinyl floor is expected to last up to 25 years or even longer when it receives optimal care. Since the wear layer on the surface of the plank or tile determines the durability, thicker is better.

Once the wear layer is worn down so it can no longer protect the wood or tile image layer, the floor must be replaced.

Core layer

Choose LVT or LVP with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core, and you've increased the likelihood that your floor will have a long lifespan.

That's because WPC flooring and SPC flooring are waterproof. However, while WPC flooring is quite durable, SPC flooring is almost indestructible.


Luxury vinyl resists stains and abrasion, but if a mishap occurs, the entire floor does not need to be replaced to restore its like-new look.

Instead, an individual luxury vinyl plank or tile can be easily replaced, especially if you opt for a brand designed for floating floor installation. That means the flooring clicks and locks together, thus needing no attachment to the subfloor.
