Vinyl Flooring 101: Everything You Need to Know For Service

Are you thinking of renovating your house floors? Is your current flooring of the kitchen and bathroom not durable? Does the replacement cost you a lot of money each year? Well, then, no worries. Your best solution might be vinyl flooring. This flooring can last 5 years to 20 years.

Vinyl Composite Tile

Vinyl composite tile or VCT fabricated by vinyl and limestone. This type of flooring installation has a smooth & matte surface. It is resilient. It can stand with heavy traffic. Due to these reasons, this type of vinyl flooring is frequently used for commercial settings.
Vinyl composite tile requires continuous polishing along with waxing. Waxing and polishing maintain its appearance. The same method is used for preventing stains as well as scratches.

Cost of VCT

This is the cheapest type of this flooring among others. The cost of installation of VCT is $2 to $4 per square foot. 

Sheet Vinyl

In this process, a large roll of vinyl is cut and fit to the size & shape of the room. Its core is built with fibreglass. Therefore, sheet vinyl is cracking, shrinking, and curling-proof. Sheet vinyl is easy to install. It has a variety of colours and patterns. When installing, the sheet vinyl requires adhesive if it is felt-backed. Otherwise, in the case of vinyl-backed, it requires glue at the edges

Cost of Sheet Vinyl

Sheet vinyl is more costly than VCT but more affordable than LVF (Luxury  Flooring). Sheet vinyl can be repaired when damaged. Although this type of flooring doesn’t look realistic. It is a good choice for the kitchen and bathrooms.  Installing sheet vinyl costs $2 to $6 per square foot.

Luxury Vinyl Flooring (LVF)

Similar to its name, this type of vinyl flooring is the most luxurious one. At the same time, LVF is the most realistic-looking vinyl flooring. Interestingly, it can mimic the look of wood, stone, or ceramic. Planks or tiles snap together in a click-lock system to form LVF. LVF has a thick wear layer. Thus, it is scratches, moisture, and dent-proof.

Cost of LVF

Few LVF products are entirely water-proof. It also has an underlayment layer which absorbs sounds and provides extra comfort. Such characteristics make it more costly than other types of flooring installation.  The cost of LVF is $4 to $9 per square foot.
