The visual image would have no protection without a wear layer for your luxury vinyl tile or plank. That means a wear layer is more essential than you might think.

The wear layer is what separates luxury vinyl flooring from cheaper vinyl materials. Here are some facts to consider as you choose your best flooring options.

What is a wear layer?


The wear layer sits between the image layer and the top layer and protects the look of your floors. It's made of urethane and offers a clear, colorless character that doesn't impede the visual.

It's essential to your luxury vinyl plank or tile flooring experience. And it can help these floors last up to 20 years or more with professional installation.

What does a wear layer do, exactly?


You'll hear that this layer is responsible for protecting the look of your luxury vinyl flooring. That means it protects against dents and daily wear that can wear down the image layer over time.

The wear layer can also be an indicator of flooring replacement needs. For instance, if you see your image layer wearing away, you'll know the wear layer has worn away as well.

The wear layer is customizable


With luxury vinyl tile and plank, one of the best things about the wear layer is that it's customizable. You can choose a thickness that best serves your purposes for your desired results.
