Vinyl Flooring

Durable, waterproof wood & tile looks

All about vinyl flooring

For decades, consumers seeking an alternative to natural wood, tile, and stone surfaces didn’t have many stylish choices. Sure, there were alternatives, but none were nearly as visually appealing. Today, that has changed. Vinyl flooring has evolved into a sophisticated flooring solution that performs well, costs less, and is better suited for busy families due to its durability and resistance to moisture. And it looks every bit as convincing!

Vinyl Care

Vinyl flooring is durable and waterproof, but it still requires some routine care!

Types of vinyl flooring

Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is designed to closely mimic the look of genuine stone or ceramic tile without the cost or upkeep. In some cases, LVT can even be installed with real grout for added authenticity!

Luxury vinyl plank (LVP) mimics the appearance of genuine hardwood flooring while remaining completely waterproof. It can be installed anywhere and requires little upkeep.

Sheet vinyl is a no-fuss, easily installed flooring solution that's perfect for busy families and business owners alike. While not quite as authentic in appearance, it's still versatile and attractive.

What exactly is "resilient" flooring?

While resilient flooring is sometimes used interchangeably with vinyl flooring, the two are not the same. Resilient is actually a catch-all name for several different types of flooring that all share common features.

Resilient flooring can be defined as flooring with "give." It falls somewhere between rigid, hard-surface flooring and soft-surface flooring, such as carpet. Vinyl flooring is only one example; this category also includes cork, rubber, and linoleum. Resilient flooring is typically very durable, flexible, and relatively inexpensive when compared to natural materials.
