Interested in learning about wear layers and luxury vinyl flooring?

Are you considering the meaning of wear layers as you browse luxury vinyl plank and tile? There are some misconceptions about this layer that may need some consideration.

As you search for the perfect floors, we want to provide helpful information. So we'll start with these wear-layer facts for your shopping help.

What is a wear layer?

The wear layer sits between the visual layer and the top protective layer. This layer guards your floor's look for better visuals longer.

The thicker the wear layer, the longer your floor's looks will last. And for those who want a longer lifespan, this works well.

What do wear layers do?

Luxury vinyl tile and plank floors are said to have a wear layer that protects your flooring, and that's partly true. However, it does preserve the look and offers some protection against daily wear.

But it's the protective topcoat that offers the most wear resistant. The two work well together and offer flooring with a lifespan that can exceed 20 years.
