A thicker floor provides more stability and comfort. LVF should have an overall thickness of at least 8-mm, 9-mm, or above and, while you can get a thinner material, it can be lesser quality. Be sure to also consider thickness if you spend long periods standing in a room, such as a kitchen.
The wear layer, a top clear, melamine wear sheet, is the key to the durability of LVT. It protects the floor from scratches and scuffs and stains, keeping spills from being absorbed. The recommended thickness of a wear layer for residential use is 20-mils. It is the wear layer that will determine the longevity of your floor.
LVF has a floating floor installation technique. This method, which is fast and uncomplicated, has a click-and-lock mechanism that forms a mat to hover over subfloors without nails or glue. Subfloor conditions are a consideration and must be clean, dry, and level. Sometimes the installer will even sand it to be sure it's even; otherwise, the surface floor will be askew.
