Is a floating floor installation suitable for luxury vinyl flooring?

Many luxury vinyl flooring styles are designed for floating floor installation, which is one of the reasons this durable material is so versatile.

Find the right style for your flooring upgrade at Wall to Wall Floor Covering in Ronks, PA. We carry brands by top-quality companies like Armstrong, Mohawk, and Mannington.


Some luxury vinyl plank and tile flooring click and lock together so installers can construct a floor that floats above the surface below it.

Since no attachment to a subfloor is needed, laying luxury vinyl flooring over your existing floor covering may be possible. Underlayment, or padding, is placed beneath a vinyl plank or tile floor to enhance its performance.

Multiple layers

Luxury vinyl is an ideal flooring material because it is composed of multiple layers that each serves a specific function.

The wear layer of luxury vinyl tile protects the image layer below it, while some core layers, especially wood plastic composite (WPC) or stone plastic composite (SPC) cores, repel water. Finally, the backing layer protects the core layer and supports the plank or tile.

Best brands

The best LVP and LVT brands are waterproof and have a thick wear layer that protects the image for 25 years.

This floor covering is well-known for its superior stain and scratch resistance; pet-friendly brands are available that can tolerate pet accidents. Textured styles, which mimic wood, stone, ceramic, and concrete, are the most realistic.
