What you should know about vinyl flooring

The first thing you need to know about vinyl flooring is what it’s not. As a vinyl flooring retailer, we can say with certainty that it's not what you may remember from decades ago. While it's still as functional as ever, there are almost unlimited design options and texturing features that give the depth and dimension of the floor.

Stylish savings

Standard sheet (often called "resilient" because it is so flexible) was introduced decades ago, with a lot of updates and technological advances, of course. It comes in a dizzying assortment of colors, patterns, and designs, including geometrics, florals, wood, tile, or stone.

Embossing can make the floors appear wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered or distressed and various finishes are available. With sheet, there are minimal seams and grout lines, giving a continuous look. The standard sheet is also available in composite tile-form.

Floating floor installations

A floating floor is not placed directly on the subfloor. Rather, it floats over the underlayment with no need to glue or nail. Usually, people think of floating only for the click and lock mechanisms, but it can be done without separate pieces. A special adhesive is used first. More typically, however, sheet vinyl is glued.

This installation requires precise measuring and a clean, dry, and level subfloor so imperfections don't shine through. Other benefits include affordability. While you can get the look of natural materials you won’t pay the same price. It’s also durable and highly resistant--some say almost waterproof. It is also easy to care for.

Being highly durable and water-resistance, sometimes even waterproof, there are just a few simple ways to maintain and care for your floors. First, sweep to remove any loose dirt. Use a damp-mop with a non-abrasive floor cleaner. If something is spilled, clean it up immediately.
