Types of vinyl flooring and how to pick the right one

Unlike some options in the past, the vinyl flooring available today brings to you some of the most stylish and high performance/quality options offered. Vinyl flooring has become one of the most preferred flooring options because of its rich visuals and long-lasting value. 


Vinyl flooring comes in a range of colors, designs, patterns, and styles. Below are some vinyl options available for you to make the perfect pick:

Vinyl plank: Vinyl plank flooring offers you the look and feel of hardwood floors without the price tag. These planks also provide you more durability and resistance than the traditional hardwood planks.

Vinyl tiles: Vinyl tile comes in individual squares of different sizes, which, when assembled, provides the appearance of stone tiles. One of the major advantages of these different tiles is that they are easy to replace. Vinyl tiles can also be used to arrange a pattern.

Vinyl sheet: Vinyl sheet flooring is a single roll of flooring that is 6-12 feet in width. The vinyl sheets limit the number of seams and are the best option for moisture-prone areas like kitchens and bathrooms.


Vinyl floors also come with three different kinds of wear surfaces:
1. Vinyl no wax
2. Urethane
3. Enhanced urethane

The vinyl no wax is considered to be an entry-level surface that offers resistance to stains and scuffs. Urethane requires low maintenance while also being durable as compared to vinyl no wax. It also has more resistance to household chemicals and marks. 

Quality installation of any floor makes a huge difference in the flooring appearance. Any installation that is done right can make your budget-friendly floor look high end. However, a second-rate installation can make even the best flooring look cheap and have gapping, bump seams, etc.  Any installation mistake hampers the durability, functionality and, of course, the appearance of your flooring. At Express Flooring, you get the best professional installers to fix your vinyl flooring with the expertise that it demands.
