Traditionally, homes with pets opt for porcelain and ceramic tile. Not only do LVP floors rival the durability of real tile, but they also provide the comfort and versatility of hardwood floors. LVP floors are designed to withstand changes in temperature and humidity, and can be installed on all levels and all rooms of the home, including the basement. They are constructed with a pre-attached underlayment that minimizes sound and provides added comfort. Our LVP floors are also constructed with a patented click-lock technology that allows rapid and cost-effective installation, without the use of glue or grout.

LVP floors are one of the most pet-friendly flooring options on the market. With that being said, Pet-owners, follow these preventative care tips to keep your LVP floors as pristine as the day you got them.
Clean up pet accidents immediately.
Regularly trim and maintain your pets' nails
Select lighter colored floors if your pet is on the rowdier side! LVP floors are scratch resistant but not scratch PROOF. Lighter floors are better at disguising the look of scratches, not to mention the constant shedding of pet hair.
