Vinyl flooring is one of the top flooring choices in the market for both residential and commercial spaces. Vinyl flooring comes in various construction types including vinyl plank, vinyl tile, and vinyl sheet, in a wide array of colors and designs ranging from wood looks to stone looks.
Vinyl plank floors, also known as luxury vinyl plank, LVP, or LVT, are designed to give you the look and feel of hardwood floors at a fraction of the cost. Its durability and waterproof characteristic make these floors an intelligent choice over hardwood, especially in homes with kids and/or pets.
LVP floors are constructed with a stabilized core that allows installation in all levels of your home including the basement, above existing surfaces such as concrete, tile and wood. LVP floors are typically constructed with a pre-attached underlayment with sound-proofing qualities and added comfort. With its improved stability and usability, LVP floors can be made thicker than vinyl tile and vinyl sheet, with click lock technology that allows rapid and cost-effective installation.
Vinyl tiles are individual tile squares that resemble stone tiles. They are easy to install and great for small areas. An added benefit of vinyl tiles is that it's easy to replace singular, damaged tiles. Vinyl tile is available in various patterns, color and sizes to mimic real stone and marble, with the option of adding grout lines to mimic real stone and ceramic tiles.
Vinyl sheeting is available in rolls up to 12’ long and can be installed with minimum seams for a continuous, smooth look. 100% waterproof, vinyl sheeting is great for installation in highly moisture prone areas like kitchens, bathrooms, basements, and can also be installed over existing flooring such as wood, tile, or vinyl.
All in all, vinyl flooring is durable, versatile, offered in a wide array of design and styles at an affordable price tag and perfect for both homes and commercial spaces alike.
