Vinyl flooring: Why you might seek it out

When introduced in the 1940s, this flooring was highly praised for its countless functional benefits, low maintenance, and easy installation. Over the years, it's evolved even more and, today, this contemporary, versatile and affordable material has vast potential. Vinyl flooring, which comes in sheets of 6 and 12-foot rolls, truly checks all the boxes.

Vinyl sheet style

You're only limited by your imagination because, with sheet vinyl flooring, you can get distinctive and unique looks. With amazingly true-to-life echoes of wood, stone, and tile, it can liven up any space from the kitchen to the hallway.

Outstanding textures

In addition, thanks to technological advances, sheet vinyl flooring has textures, including embossed-in-register (EIR). EIR is an embossing process that produces a texture that follows the pattern in the design image, adding significantly to the realism.

Stone and ceramic looks

If stone and ceramic tile are more to your liking, you can get images that resemble marble, travertine, and others. There are also significant, bold tile patterns, such as geometrics, hexagons, and circles in vibrant colors and chevrons, herringbones, fauna, flora, and more. They all come with high-quality finishes!

Waterproof durability

Sheet vinyl flooring is made of PVC, a waterproof material. This makes it perform beautifully in wet areas like the kitchen, bath, laundry room, etc.

In addition, it can withstand the heaviest foot traffic and wear from kids and pets. Finally, it can last up to 20 years; carefully follow the "manufacturer's instructions" on the warranty!

Soft, comfortable, and easy to maintain

Vinyl flooring has a beautiful balance of "give" and firmness. That means while it's strong, it's also warm, flexible, and easy on the joints.

It needs regular sweeping and periodic mopping, but be sure to use a manufacturer-approved cleaner. Some substances can damage finishes and dull the floor.

Vinyl flooring offers easy installation

Vinyl sheet flooring can either be glued down or installed via the loose-lay technique, which means it will sit on the subfloor without adhesives. It's imperative, however, that subfloors be properly primed because imperfections in the subfloor can telegraph to the surface. Subfloors should be clean, dry, and level before installation, and, if not level, make sure your installer sands them to even them out.
