What are the difference between Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) and laminate flooring?

LVT is a plank looking product that can be made  to look like wood or tile and it is very life like. This is why it is the fastest growing product in the flooring industry. LVT has only been around for about 8 years.

It is much more versatile than laminate. It is great for kitchens and bathroom were water can be an issue.

Laminate is plastic and was introduced 25 years ago.  Typically a floating floor.  They typically have a wood core so they are not great in the bathroom or kitchen where they could get wet and can expand them.

Price is similar for either one $1.50 to $4 a foot

Coventry Flooring installs LVT and carpet.  We are cash and carry for laminate products.

Pricing is by square foot and will depend on lots of issues based on what the floor is like.  We will come out and do an estimate for you to see what your job would involve.
