Finding the right floor is kinda like finding the right pair of running shoes. The most important part is how well it will perform and hold up to the elements. When you’re looking to put vinyl flooring in your home, you are usually doing so because of the distinct advantages vinyl flooring can offer. Vinyl Flooring usually more budget-friendly, waterproof or very water resistant, and installation is easy.
A vinyl tile floor is often installed in commercial settings where high traffic is a constant, or where a clean or static-free environment is desired. It can also be a versatile and cost effective choice for any household. In the home, vinyl tile flooring is often used where a significant amount of moisture is expected. It is also frequently used in remodels to replace higher maintenance flooring, like carpet.
Luxury vinyl is the newest type of vinyl flooring on the market and has dramatically surpassed the other types of vinyl in terms of looking like stone or wood. It even has realistic textures, and it comes in planks or tiles. There are also versions of luxury vinyl tile that can be groutable. It does come at a higher price point, however.
Sheet vinyl is your standard vinyl flooring. It comes in large rolls that the installer then cuts to fit the floor. Because it is one solid sheet, it is excellent for bathrooms and basements. There is much less chance of water seeping underneath and ruining it and your subfloor. It is also one of the most budget-friendly flooring options available. It is also called resilient flooring.
