What is loose lay luxury vinyl flooring?

Luxury vinyl is a high-tech synthetic flooring material designed to look like flooring made of natural materials. It's a 'go-anywhere flooring that repels water and resists scratches and stains. You can't go wrong by choosing a luxury vinyl floor covering for your home, whether you live alone or you're a member of a household that includes children and pets. You can find luxury vinyl plank and luxury vinyl tile at Unique Flooring in Oceanside, California. In addition, we carry loose lay, floating floor, and glue-down LVP and LVT brands.

Installation method

While glue-down vinyl brands adhere to the subfloor, floating floor planks and tiles interlock, so the floor floats above the subfloor. Floating floors can be disassembled if necessary. Loose lay planks and tiles are even easier to install and remove. The flooring is perfect for apartment dwellers and homeowners who require removable flooring. Loose lay luxury vinyl flooring butts together. Added weight, a special backing, and friction keep the flooring in place.


Multi-layer LVP includes an image layer that looks like hardwood. Some LVT brands also mimic wood, while other brands look like stone or ceramic. The image layer is covered by a transparent wear layer that shields the flooring from damage. The core layer, which is protected by the backing layer, is positioned beneath the image layer. Any product with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core is waterproof.
