You've made your decision and are ready to select and install your new vinyl flooring. So let's cover some important properties about vinyl and why you should consider it;
But before you pick up the phone or click that mouse, there are a few more things you should think about, starting with those layers.
Thick flooring is not necessarily what you're looking for. You want a thick wear layer. That's the top layer and the one that really counts. It's the one that determines how well your flooring will stand up to traffic, as well as rips, tears and gouges. Ask us what's right for you.
Pick the right vinyl flooring for the space. Ask us to review with you the manufacturer's warranty and performance characteristics of the flooring you are interested in. You need to understand that premium products tend to have premium warranties. A good warranty is a great stress reliever.
Vinyl sheets are manufactured in 6' and 12' widths. Depending on the configuration of your room, seaming may be necessary. Make sure your retailer can explain to you where the seams are likely to be when your new floor is laid down. Certain floor patterns hide seams better. For example, tile patterns with grout lines mask seams beautifully.
In rooms with heavy water use, such as bathrooms and laundry rooms, you may need to occasionally replace the heavy caulking where the flooring meets the walls or toilet. You don't want water seeping under your flooring.
"Cost per square foot" is just one component of the overall price tag for new vinyl flooring. Ask us to calculate the total cost of your floor-covering project. Here's what we may include beyond the cost of the vinyl, itself:
In addition to your total project cost, annual cleanings are also recommended to maintain the beauty and life of your new vinyl flooring. Consult the manufacturer's warranty and care guide for directions on cleaning and maintenance.
Softer and warmer than other hard surfaces, this flooring is truly resilient because it "gives" underfoot. It's tough, too. Aluminum and nylon particles make resilient rugged, enough never to wear through to the pattern, and it does away with many glassy finishes popular in past generations. That's especially important as the sheen in resilient flooring evolves to softer and matte finishes.
