Vinyl and linoleum floors have been around for years. Sheet vinyl is the most commonly used type of vinyl floor because of its affordability and ease of installation. Vinyl flooring offers a wide variety of colors and styles for an array of uses from bathrooms to kitchens and hallways. Like laminate flooring, the look of vinyl is actually achieved by a pattern layer on the surface of the floor. If you are looking for an affordable alternative to ceramic floors, we suggest you look into our selection of vinyl flooring from manufacturers such as Tarkett, Mannington, and Armstrong.
Today’s unique manufacturing processes can replicate the look and textures of real ceramic tile, stone, and wood grains. The more expensive the vinyl sheet flooring and tiles are, the more resistant they will be to staining, scratching, and tearing. Many have special fiberglass backings to prevent shrinkage and tearing. Not only is the performance better, but so is the warranty on the high-end vinyl floors. Most top end vinyl comes with warranties of 20 or more years. Also, as you go up in quality, you will also notice improved styling and more textural realism in these floors.
