Vinyl flooring gives a softer feel under foot than options like tiles, wood or laminate , because the product is backed with a thin layer of either felt or foam—depending on the manufacturer. The soft layer results in the floor having a little more flexibility and give, which makes it easier to stand on for long periods of time. There are a huge range of colours and styles with Vinyl tiles. Designs can mimic the look of stone tiles or wood planks. While up close you can identify that it is vinyl, it can be hard to tell from afar the floor is vinyl.
One of the key advantages of Vinyl is that it wears incredibly well. It is extremely durable, warranties of 15 years plus are not uncommon from the manufacturers. The reality is that, a well-installed and properly maintained vinyl floor may well last over 20 years.
Vinyl flooring is very resistant to dirt and water, and it’s one of the few flooring types that can be installed directly over the subfloor—or over a previous vinyl or linoleum installation. If your floor has a lot of cracks or excessive movement, the flexibility of Vinyl makes it the ideal surface for these cases.
Vinyl flooring also wins for keeping clean and maintained. Once installed it requires occasional mopping and sweeping to keep it clean. Its durability means that it doesn’t damage easily and will give a quality and lasting finish
