ALL ABOUT VINYL

What's the best vinyl flooring for me?

Vinyl is a specific type of plastic. Vinyl flooring is a product made by layering different materials, including vinyl. The most common type of vinyl floor consist of 4 layers: a felt, fiberglass or vinyl backing; a core layer; a decorative layer with the flooring pattern; and a final “wear layer” on top that protects the flooring from scratches and scuffs.

“Resilient flooring” is a term used for flooring that has some elasticity to it. This is the case with vinyl – it is a firm flooring product with a bit of “give.” The terms vinyl and resilient flooring are often used interchangeably. However, it’s important to note that there are some non-vinyl, resilient flooring options, including cork, rubber and linoleum. If you have questions specific to any resilient flooring product, a Floor Store associate would be happy to help. Give us a call or stop by today.

Vinyl is not only available in sheets, as a matter of fact, it also comes in  planks, tiles or a variety of options to express your own personal creativity.

Vinyl flooring can be installed in any room in the house, including rooms at, above or below grade (ground level). It can also be installed over almost any type of subfloor (concrete, wood, vinyl), as long as the subfloor is smooth and level. If the subfloor has imperfections, they may show through the vinyl.

Vinyl and Linoleum are not the same, while both products are examples of resilient flooring, they are actually manufactured from completely different materials. While vinyl flooring consists of vinyl, felt and fiberglass, linoleum is made from natural materials such as linseed oil, tree resin, cork dust and wood flour.
