What to know about vinyl flooring

Vinyl sheet flooring is a synthetic, multi-layered product with a backing, core, printed design layer, and top clear, strong wear coating. It is available in many designs and colors, including wood, stone, tile, florals, checkerboards, geometrics, etc.

This vinyl is made with waterproof material PVC, comes with high-end style, durability, easy-care, and an uncomplicated installation. An ultra budget-friendly flooring comes in large sheets typically available in six or 12-foot wide rolls (although you will sometimes see 13-inches wide). It is an excellent choice for the kitchen, bath, laundry room, and basement.

Embossing and micro beveling add depth and dimension. These floors come complete with textures, raised grains, and looks, including wire-brushed, hand scraped, weathered, and distressed. Examine our inventory when you are looking for vinyl flooring in Remsen, IA.

How is it installed?

Sheet vinyl can either be glued down or loose-lay, the latter being much like a floating floor, which hovers over the subfloor, but without the click-and-lock mechanism. Some prefer to install sheets since there are no seams with which to contend. It can also be installed over any subfloor and in any grade level, which professional installers love since it's quick, efficient, and clean, contributing to the affordability of this product.

Why is the choice of backing so important?

It determines the appearance and performance of the installation. The backing is essential because it provides stability and foundation, and it comes in three different materials, including fiberglass. The most popular backing, fiberglass, keeps the material from curling and, because of that, can be installed as a loose lay. Felt is softer and more comfortable, but it will curl unless glued down permanently. Finally, vinyl sheet flooring with a vinyl backing is the most durable.

Easy care is a significant benefit. All this flooring needs is regular sweeping (daily, if possible) and periodic mopping. Please avoid waxy, shine-promoting products, as they can damage the finish and dull the floor. If you feel you need more shine, seek the advice of a flooring professional.
