Luxury vinyl flooring in Saskatoon, SK from Braid Flooring & Window Fashions

What is loose lay luxury vinyl flooring?

Luxury vinyl is an easy-to-clean multiple-layer flooring material that satisfies a diverse array of homeowner needs. The tough plank and tile floor covering resists stains and scuffs and scratches, and waterproof styles are abundant. Thus, it's perfect for pet owners, parents, and frequent entertainers. Regardless of your lifestyle, the best brands will serve you well for 25 years or more. Top companies like Armstrong and Mannington can find luxury vinyl flooring at Braid Flooring & Window Fashions in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.


Three methods of installation make planks and tiles even more versatile. Loose lay luxury vinyl is the least permanent method. The flooring, which includes a heavy backing, butts together and uses its weight and friction to stay in place. The flooring works best on a subfloor that is smooth and level. Finally, glue-down brands contrast floating floor brands that interlock at the edges and need no attachment to the subfloor.


Likely, most homeowners would agree that the best thing about luxury vinyl flooring is its good looks. Planks imitate many hardwood species, while tiles mimic stones like slate and granite and ceramic and wood. The high-tech image layer is well-protected by the transparent wear layer. The core layer, situated beneath the image layer, is cushioned by the backing layer that supports the plank or tile.
