Vinyl Flooring
Everyone loves the look of hardwood floors but hardwood floors may not be for everyone. Wood flooring warms up even the coldest basement, and creates a cozy feeling in any room's interior design. If you want the look and feel of hardwood floors, vinyl plank flooring is a great option. Vinyl flooring comes in many different patterns and styles including: faux stone, faux ceramic tile, but the faux wood grain of vinyl plank flooring is one of the most popular choices. Vinyl plank flooring has all of the design benefits of real hardwood floors, but it is more durable, easier to clean and can be less expensive than traditional hardwood floors.

One of the main benefits of vinyl plank flooring is its durability. Vinyl plank flooring can stand up to loads of abuse. That's why vinyl flooring is often used in commercial buildings where there is heavy traffic. This makes vinyl plank flooring a perfect choice for a child's room, a family room, a rec room or a play room among other things.

Cleaning vinyl plank flooring is much easier than cleaning hardwood floors. Vinyl flooring can be wet mopped without fear of damaging the surface. Because the surface is impermeable, liquid will not seep into the floor, so mold and mildew is also not a problem. Consequently, vinyl flooring is a perfect choice for areas that are prone to spills and moisture such as kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, mud rooms and basements. Vinyl plank flooring is so durable and easy to clean; it is even a practical option for garages.

You'll be surprised at how many different styles of vinyl plank flooring you have to choose from. No matter what type of look you are interested in, there is vinyl plank flooring to simulate that look that's just right for you. The design options are endless.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the advantages of vinyl plank flooring?

Vinyl plank flooring is versatile and durable. Vinyl Plank flooring is also a less expensive floor option. Another major attraction for the category is its ease of maintenance, which requires little more than soap, water and a mop. The surface layer on resilient flooring is also extremely resistant to scratching, fading and wear.

What type of chair protectors can I use on vinyl plank flooring?

Support furniture with wide-bearing, non-staining floor protectors. Ideally, the protectors should be at least one inch in diameter, made of non-pigmented, hard plastic and rest flat on the floor. Non-staining felt protectors are also acceptable. Casters with a minimum 3/4" flat surface width or floor protectors are recommended for all moveable furniture. Make sure any metal protectors are rustproof. Replace your narrow-dome furniture rests with wide-bearing ones.

My furniture has faded due to sunlight. Can I expect sunlight to affect my flooring as well?

Vinyl plank flooring is susceptible to damage from UV rays. We suggest putting blinds over sliding glass doors and closing curtains on extremely sunny days, so your flooring doesn't fade from direct and prolonged exposure to the sun.

What kind of rugs or mats can I use on my vinyl plank floor?

We do not recommend the use of rubber- or latex-backed mats because the chemical (antioxidant) used to keep the backing from becoming brittle can permanently stain your floor. We suggest a nonstaining vinyl-backed mat or a woven rug that is colorfast. Most of these products are identified "colorfast" by the manufacturer.

Does "no-wax" flooring mean I don't have to perform maintenance on my floor?

No. No-wax means your floor has a coating which does not require you to buff and wax your flooring. We recommend vacuuming or sweeping regularly, and washing as needed.
