Vinyl Planks for residential installation

2 months ago

We're installing about 2000 sq ft. of LVP in our home. I'm looking for some help on what a good thickness and wear layer be for residential use. We are a family of four living in Miami. 2 teenagers + wife and I. We also have a cat. Here are some questions that I would like some help with:

What thickness is above average? 5 to 6.5 MM?

What wear layer is above average? 12 mil vs 20 mil?

The floor is going to be installed over tile. Do I need any prep work before installing?

Do I need to install a humidity barrier?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
