Signature Wood Look LVT Without the Worry

signature wood look lvt without the worry

Many homeowners and business owners are turning to luxury vinyl tile to get the signature wood look they desire but without all the worry of real wood. MSI’s Dryback Flexible Glue Down LVT is a popular line of products that offers extreme durability for high traffic areas, easily handles moisture-rich rooms, and provides exceptional noise reduction.

Because it is attached to the subfloor using glue or an adhesive tape, it requires professional installation, as it is harder to work with. While you can purchase glue-down tile for a more affordable price than floating vinyl, with costs falling in the $1.70 per square foot range, you do have to factor in the installation costs. We think this line is a cost-effective solution for so many places, so take a look at some of MSI’s most popular glue-down vinyl plank flooring.
