Luxury vinyl in Amarillo, TX from Gowdy Flooring

Luxury vinyl flooring for anywhere in the home

Luxury vinyl floors show off a wood look or a tile look. This less costly substitute for natural flooring materials is durable and practical. With its resistance to scratching and staining, it's a wise choice for parents and pet owners. Gowdy Flooring in Amarillo, Texas, offers a large assortment of all types of luxury vinyl plank, or LVP, and luxury vinyl tile, or LVT. You can place vinyl planks and tiles anywhere in your home, even moisture-prone and high-traffic spaces.

Core layer

Luxury vinyl flooring
consists of four layers that are bonded together. LVP and LVT with a wood-plastic composite (WPC) or a stone plastic composite (SPC) core are waterproof. Both types of vinyl can tolerate standing water. Virtually indestructible SPC is the superior material.

Wear layer

The wear layer protects the wood, stone, or ceramic image layer. Once this transparent surface coating is worn, the image becomes damaged. Thus, it's best to choose a thick wear layer brand since it determines durability. A 20+ mil surface layer is ideal.

EIR vinyl

Choose Embossed in Register LVP for the most authentic wood look floors. The textured finish perfectly lines up with the wood grain that is shown on the image layer. Depth is intensified with this high-tech process so that the plank looks and feels like hardwood flooring.


While most LVP and LVT brands are designed for floating floor installation, glue-down and loose lay brands are available. Floating floor brands click and lock together, so no attachment to the subfloor is necessary. Loose-lay flooring butts together.
