Kitchen Make Over
Did you know that Stone Masters has a zero Interest remodeling plan that Can include LVT and its installation. The best part is that LVT is typically only a day or two for installation.
Tile Flooring Vs LVT
Tile flooring requires a sub-straight typically Hardi-Backer. Prior to installation the tiles must acclimate to the building temperature. And, tile requires a wet mortar to bond the tiles to the sub-straight. Each tile must be hand set for alignment and lippage. Finally after the mortar has cured grout can be installed. Lastly, the grout must be sealed. LVT skips most all of these steps making it far more affordable compared to tile.
Tile Flooring Vs Wood Floors
Before installation just like tile wood flooring must be temperature acclimated. An underlayment to prevent squeaking must be laid down. Next the noise and mess of cutting wood and nail gun cracking begins. Dust and more dust. In the end you will have a beautiful floor. But do not forget that wood absorbs moisture and can scratch and stain. Not with LVT!
