Durability - Reducing Waste Over Time

One of the standout features of luxury vinyl flooring is its exceptional durability. All of our Everlife® Luxury Vinyl Tile and Luxury Vinyl Planks feature our exclusive CrystaLux protection layer, a protective topcoat that prevents damage like scratches, spills, and indentations. This added wear layer not only reduces the need for replacements but also contributes to sustainability by extending the lifespan of your flooring and minimizing waste generation.

Our XL Trecento® Kenzzi Taza, with its intricate patterns and rich textures, mimics the timeless beauty of ceramic or porcelain tiles while also being highly resilient. By choosing this luxury vinyl tile, you're not only adding an elegant touch to your space but also ensuring that your flooring will stand the test of time, making it a long-lasting choice for your home.

Recyclability - A Commitment to Sustainability

Did you know that some luxury vinyl flooring products are recyclable? This means that at the end of their lifespan, these floors can be processed and reused, further minimizing their environmental footprint.
