Because vinyl flooring is resilient and versatile, it includes the ability to be installed over a variety of surfaces and is availabile in an array of colors and patterns. This means a lot of options, but our professional staff can help you choose a vinyl floor that best matches the décor of your home and manage the entire installation process from start to finish. Take a look at some of the benefits below.
Vinyl flooring is resistant to heat, dents, scratches and water damage. Vinyl tiles come with surface coatings that are meant to resist dirt, stains, and scuff marks. They come in one of three types:
- Vinyl No-Wax: Ideal for areas with low traffic and minimal dirt exposure.
- Urethane: Suitable for areas with normal to heavy foot traffic; also resistant to scuff marks and scratches and it is easy to clean.
- Enhanced Urethane: This is the highest quality wearlayer and can handle the heaviest foot traffic. It is also stain and scratch resistant and lasts much longer than the other coatings.
High-traffic and moisture areas are no match for vinyl floors, which hold up to years of heavy use. Therefore, vinyl floors are the practical choice for areas of your home such as kitchens, bathrooms, and utility rooms.
Vinyl flooring can be installed over virtually any underlayment, concrete, old ceramic tile, and wood or non-cushioned vinyl flooring. Specifically, sheet vinyl is great for areas with high moisture such as the kitchen or bathroom because the sheets can be installed seamlessly. Because vinyl flooring is available in a range of options, such as planks, which are much less expensive than actual hardwood, it can also be beneficial to your budget.
It can also come in an array of styles, colors, and patterns to create a variety of different looks. Vinyl flooring can come in styles that mimic stone, wood, and ceramic.
Making the vinyl choice
Vinyl flooring only requires regular sweeping and occasional damp mopping to stay clean. Spills can be cleaned up effectively with a damp cloth. With the proper maintenance, it can last for a long time.
