flooring has come a long way in the last few years. Also called resilient flooring, vinyl is an extremely versatile flooring option. Known for it’s easy care and cleaning, they are generally wear-resistant and resilient. Many products now also offer a “cushion” underneath so that they “give” when you walk on them, which creates a soft, comfortable feel underfoot, and also reduces the chances of breakage. There are literally hundreds of colors and styles to choose from, and pricing options that make vinyl workable for almost any budget. Many of the new vinyl choices have limitless design options that mimic expensive tile wood looks with mosaic inserts, medallions and even click lock systems that can extend your flooring into the outdoors!
Available in tiles, strips or sheet choices.
The three basic types of vinyl floors currently used in homes and commercial settings:
PVC : PVC (Polyvinyl chloride), the latest technology in resilient flooring offers a fiberglass inter layer and comfort backing. With the option of endless design and color options, this floor offers dimensional stability so the flooring will not expand, contract, crack or curl.
Urethane : The upgrade wear layer for vinyl floors. This is easier to clean and is more resistant to scratching than ordinary vinyl no-wax. Weekly cleaning with a no-rinse floor cleaner is all that is required on most urethane floors.
Vinyl : The standard wear layer for base grade vinyl floors. Although this is considered a no wax floor, it should be given an occasional polish to give the floor a shine.
The unique manufacturing processes used today can replicate the look and textures of real ceramic tile, stone and wood grains. Plus, resilient manufacturers have created new manufacturing processes to make vinyl floors more tear and stain resistant and some product lines now offer an easy click lock system for fast and easy installation that it can even be used outdoors!
