About stone core luxury vinyl flooring

This is engineered to be thicker, more durable, solid, and rigid. The core is the star of this show.
The traditional luxury vinyl flooring composite core is swapped out; it’s replaced with the SPC (stone plastic composite) one.

The SPC core

Stone plastic composite cores never soak, peel, or ripple–ever. In fact, you can leave your home for days, weeks, or months with peace of mind knowing your vinyl flooring won’t be water damaged.

SPC cores are so durable they were once used mainly in commercial applications, but now they’re increasingly popular in homes.

You’ll probably also hear the term WPC (wood plastic composite) when you shop. It, too, never peels or ripples. The difference, however, is the feeling underfoot.

WPC is softer and more resilient, like that of vinyl. It, too, is graded for commercial use.

Uncomplicated installation

Rigid core luxury vinyl floors have a clicking mechanism. The pieces click to mat and hover over a clean, dry, and level subfloor without adhesives or nails.
