Advantages & Disadvantages
The main benefits of vinyl flooring are that it is soft underfoot, budget-friendly, and resilient. Vinyl flooring is very durable and it will age well without losing quality if it is taken care of well. Additionally, vinyl can bear the appearance of hardwood or tile flooring without the price tag. Not to mention, vinyl flooring can often be easily installed directly over old floors without any problems, and it is easy to clean.
On the other hand, vinyl flooring can be harmful to people with allergies and/or asthma. Sometimes VOCs can be released during vinyl installation, so it has the potential to cause air quality issues. Luckily, with the recent push to be more earth-friendly, installers will usually take precautions to ensure that vinyl flooring installation does not release any harmful chemicals. Also, the flipside of being soft underfoot is that vinyl flooring can be punctured or otherwise damaged if you drop a sharp object on it.
We carry a wide variety of both sheet and tile vinyl flooring, in an array of colors and styles. Because we are backed by leading manufacturers, we have access to the best brands and highest quality products at affordable prices.
