LVT and Hardwood Floors

Hard Surface Flooring Options for your Home

Having a hard surface floor in your home provides a timeless look. Whether it is for your kitchen, living room, dining room, bedroom, or den, the options for a hard surface installation are endless. At Carpet One Wilmington, we offer the top quality hard surface flooring options in the industry, so you won’t be settling. Hardwood flooring has always been a homeowner’s favorite due to its variety of looks, colors, and designs. Nonetheless, LVT flooring has become increasingly popular due to its durability and ability to mimic the looks and textures of real hardwood. 

Sifting through your flooring options may have you deciding between hardwood and LVT. If you are still tackling between both options, allow us to help you make the decision. 

Top Hardwood Flooring Brands

At Carpet One Willmington, we offer a variety of hardwood flooring brands to choose from; including, Hanover Hills, Rustic River Hardwood, Invincible, Boroque, and Voyager. These brands offer gorgeous features to each collection. Whether you are looking for a smooth finish, aged, or rustic look, these hardwood floors are hand-scraped by professional craftsman. 

Having real hardwood floors in your home raises its value.  Hardwood has the highest resale value, which makes it worth the investment. Also, hardwood floors may not have the highest durability in the industry, but sealants make it water resistant and stain resistant. These finishes provide extra strength to everyday wear, so your hardwood floors will maintain its look and color for years. 

Top Vinyl Flooring Brands

Though hardwood floors offer many benefits and beautiful finishes, LVT floors real hardwood and tile looks have made them a popular replacement to the real tile and hardwood. If your mudroom, bathroom, and kitchen aren’t the only high traffic areas in your home, then an LVT floor is the perfect solution to ensuring your floors will last. 

LVT brands such as COREtec Plus and Invincible H20, have made a name for themselves by being 100% waterproof and almost unmistakable to a real hardwood floor. Additionally, these LVT floors will not contract, expand, or swell under temperature changes, and will lock out any liquids, dirt, food, mud, pet dander, etc., from trickling through to the subfloor. LVT floors are completely pet proof, children proof, and party proof. LVT floors are no longer limited to the areas of your home that see the most traffic, and you can relax knowing you are getting the look of real textured hardwood but with greater sustainability. 

Hardwood and LVT floors provide endless benefits. If you desire hardwood floors throughout your home but need more strength for the high traffic areas, then you will be able to match up looks. Hardwood and LVT floors can work together throughout your home, so don’t feel limited to just one.
