For pet owners, luxury vinyl flooring (LVF) is a great alternative to less pet-friendly flooring like hardwood and natural stone, such as marble or travertine. LVF, available in planks and tiles, imitates these natural materials. This tough and durable floor covering is scratch, stain- and abrasion-resistant. Many brands were designed with pets in mind. Arbor Zen Hardwood Floors is a flooring retailer in Black Mountain, North Carolina, that offers a full line of LVF as well as other flooring materials like GeoWood, bamboo, and cork. We make it easy for you to get your flooring project started. We provide a mobile showroom, and we offer free in-home estimates.

Waterproof flooring

All standard vinyl sheet flooring and some LVF are water-resistant. Other LVF products are waterproof. This multi-ply, durable flooring is waterproof if it has a wood composite core, (WPC) a rigid core, or a 100% vinyl core. Waterproof LVF will not be damaged if it is left in standing water for an extended period. A floor never warps or buckles since planks and tiles do not swell. Therefore, this dog-friendly flooring won't be damaged by pet accidents or basement flooding. Most often, luxury vinyl planks and tiles fit together to form a floor that floats over the subfloor.
