How do you prepare for installing LVP?
The subfloor must be dry, clean, flat and solid. LVP can be installed over any existing floor surface except carpet, but if the grout joints in ceramic tile are too wide leveling maybe necessary to make the surface flush. Do not install LVP on slopes. Always refer to your installation instructions before installing.
What is LVP constructed of?
LVP made up of a transparent wear layer, a patterned image, a fiberglass core, and a support base. Each plank has an UV- cured urethane finish. The UV urethane finish process ensures non-yellowing over time, and withstands abrasion and foot traffic, even in commercial settings.
