Why choose vinyl flooring?

If your goal is to enhance the style of your house, but you aim for a functional project without spending a fortune, vinyl flooring will be your number one choice to improve your living space.

What is vinyl flooring?

Vinyl is a great substitute for stone, tile, and even hardwood flooring, especially in spaces where humidity or water spills happen often. Its durability comes from being built in layers, which gives stability, cushioning and extra shielding. Unlike hardwood floor installations, vinyl flooring is waterproof and the installation is less complex.

Benefits of choosing vinyl flooring:

Waterproof
Water-resistant materials like PVC are the main components of vinyl sheets, which makes it the best option for spaces that are constantly humid or where water can be spilled on the floor, like bathrooms and kitchens.

Comfort
You’ll notice softer steps, unlike other hard materials like stone. This helps when you have to stand on your feet for a prolonged time. It also has a warmer temperature than materials such as ceramic tile.

Easy to maintain
If you constantly need a hardwood floor refinishing, you’ll love how simple it is to take care of sheet vinyl flooring. With little or no seams and borders, and high resistance to scratches, a simple sweep and mop will do the trick. As for spills, you won’t need more than a fast wipe.

Durability
Forget about hardwood floor repair. Opt for a long-lasting vinyl variety that resists stains, scratches and tears. With adequate installation and care, it can last up to 10-20 years. Consider it the best option for the rooms with the most panache in your home.

Accessible
If you compare the cost per square foot with materials like hardwood or tile, you’ll find out that vinyl flooring is one of the most affordable options if you want to keep your savings.

Easy to install
Vinyl sheet flooring installation is far less complex than other materials. You won’t need to hire expensive hardwood flooring contractors, and it can be done over surfaces like concrete, wood or even vinyl if it doesn’t have two or more previous layers.

With all these advantages vinyl flooring represents the most accessible and functional option for your place. Why don’t you give us a call and we’ll give you further advice on why choosing vinyl flooring is a no-brainer.
