Vinyl flooring basics

 
Resilient Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl has been a popular flooring choice in American homes for decades. Now grouped into a category called “resilient flooring,” today’s vinyl floors are manufactured using the latest advances in flooring technology. The shiny, plastic-looking floors that were once prone to scratching and scuffing, now feature more matte finishes, and are far more durable, easy to maintain, and wear-resistant than their distant cousins. In addition to offering better performance, these floors have gotten a bit of a makeover. Available in sheets, tiles, or planks, today’s vinyl flooring comes in a huge variety of colors, patterns, and trendy designs, with many high-end styles impressively mimicking the look and textures of popular materials such as real ceramic tile, stone, and wood.

Why Choose Resilient Vinyl
Vinyl is one of the most versatile materials used in flooring. It is highly resistant to mold, mildew, and moisture, making it one of the most popular flooring options for kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and just about any room in which occasional spills and moisture are a concern. Also one of the most affordable flooring materials out there, vinyl is easy to install over most existing flooring (providing it meets specific requirements), and it’s easy to maintain. Vinyl’s built-in cushiony underlayment also makes it warmer and softer underfoot than real tile, stone, or wood.

Determining Quality
With the explosion of vinyl flooring products now available under the “resilient” umbrella, how can you tell the lower-quality varieties of vinyl from the truly resilient? It all starts with understanding the different products and the manufacturing processes used to make each.

Printed vs. Inlaid Vinyl
When shopping for vinyl flooring, you’ll likely come across two types: printed and inlaid.
With printed vinyl, patterns are printed using a paper top coat placed directly on a thin vinyl surface and then covered with several layers of clear vinyl or urethane to produce a protective wear layer. Also referred to as rotovinyl, this type of vinyl is a more affordable.

Available formats

 
For residential use, vinyl is available in a few different formats, including sheet vinyl, solid vinyl tiles, and luxury vinyl tiles/planks.

Sheet vinyl generally comes in 6’ or 12’ wide rolls (12’ is standard). When installed, this single sheet of vinyl is rolled flat and cut to the shape of the floor. As with wall-to-wall carpet, if the floor is too large for one sheet, additional sheets are added, which creates seams where the sheets meet.

In terms of installation, there are two main types of sheet vinyl: felt-backed and modified fiberglass back loose-lay. The most common, modified fiberglass, which, if done PERFECTLY can be done as a loose-laid application. Carpet City Flooring Center recommends to always fully adhere your vinyl floor to eliminate the possibility of air bubbles.
