What is a wear layer?

Most homeowners know that a wear layer, which is found in luxury vinyl tile and plank products, is what protects you from wear and keeps your floors looking newer longer. However, we’re going to tell you a bit more about it in today’s post, so read along with us now to find out more.

Take time to consider luxury vinyl plank and tile

A wear layer works to protect the surface of your luxury vinyl plank and tile from becoming prematurely worn, guarding you against scratches, scuffs, dents, stains, and more. It is situated between the image layer and the top finish and is usually urethane.

This layer can be customized into a thickness that best fits your needs, with thicker wear layers for more active households. These thicker options are perfect for parents or pet owners, who are more likely to see wear start to show sooner than other households might.

For added protection and to give your floors an even longer lifespan, you might consider a few well-placed area rugs or runners where traffic and activity are highest. If you’re in doubt about what you need, be sure to spend some time speaking with one of our associates when you visit.
