Vinyl Buying Guide

Vinyl Tile

Vinyl Tile consists of 4 primary layers: A urethane wear layer to resist scratches and scuffs, a protective clear film layer to protect against rips, tears, and gouging, a printed design layer that carries the realistic colors and patterns, and a structural vinyl backing layer that adds strength and durability.

Luxury Vinyl Tile

Luxury vinyl products come in an array of wood patterns, slates, and tiles that bring a stunning new level of realism. Some of the tile patterns can be installed with or without grout making it very hard to tell the difference from the real thing. Luxury Vinyl Tile is flexible to install and highly resilient to wear and tear, making it the ideal choice for those wanting the best of both quality and affordability. Luxury vinyl can be installed by gluing down, locking, or floating.

Sheet Vinyl

Sheet vinyl comes in a variety of styles and colors and is a very durable product. Sheet vinyl is rolled flat and cut to match the shape of the floor making this product virtually seamless. Sheet vinyl is resistant to moisture and is a great choice for kitchens or homeowners seeking a durable, cost effective floor. Sheet vinyl comes in three different types:

Felt backed – this type of vinyl is created by adding a layer of felt to the back of the vinyl sheet adding a cushion.  Felt backed vinyl sheets are installed with an adhesive.

Vinyl Backed – this type of vinyl is installed by gluing the sheet to the floor along the edges only. It is recommended that this product be installed by a professional.

Loose-Lay – this type of vinyl is created by adding a layer of fiberglass to the back adding strength and stability to the sheet. Loose Lay vinyl is installed without any adhesives
