Does Luxury Vinyl Flooring Expand?

Luxury vinyl flooring offers exceptional benefits and characteristics. Among them are beautiful visuals, outstanding durability, and a useful lifespan.

But there are other facts about this flooring you should know as you consider it for your home. Today, we will tell you more about whether these materials expand and what that means.

Luxury vinyl flooring does expand

Both luxury vinyl tile and vinyl plank flooring expand and contract when exposed to changes in weather, including temperatures. The expansion and contraction are only fractions of an inch, but this can make a difference.

We add an expansion gap if necessary

If there’s any chance that temperatures will change enough to cause changes in your luxury vinyl flooring, we will add an expansion gap. This ensures that the floors won't crack, bubble or warp.

These expansion gaps are required in specific spaces, especially basements and other below-grade rooms. In addition, it allows temperature-related movement without negative results.

A professional installation provides excellent luxury vinyl

Once your floors are professionally installed, you can expect perfect results for up to 20 years or more. Even in flood conditions, you'll find exceptional durability, including complete waterproof protection.
