Vinyl Flooring Durability
Fast & Affordable Installation
Modern vinyl flooring has evolved over the past few years into a diverse array of styles and finishes that can fit into the style and aesthetic of most homes. It’s also a great affordable and long-lasting choice. With many homeowners choosing to remodel an older home or make improvements to their current estate, vinyl flooring can be an excellent choice to update the design of a room. Footprints Floors has trained staff to make vinyl plank flooring installation a smooth process for homeowners.
Easy to Install and Maintain
Vinyl can be installed over many different types of pre-existing subflooring, making vinyl plank flooring installation a breeze. Plus, it helps you save money on removing and demolishing old floors. Once it is installed, it’s easy to maintain and keep clean. Basic sweeping and mopping will do the job just fine. No wax needed! Most vinyl has a no-wax finish, keeping your floors shiny without polish. Occasionally, like any flooring, your vinyl flooring may benefit from a professional cleaning and polish.
Durability and Affordability
Vinyl comprises multiple layers of compressed synthetic material that are finished to look like wood, tile, or other flooring types. Because it’s artificial, vinyl is 100% water resistant, and its backing layer prevents mold and mildew from accruing underneath your floors. Vinyl is often an excellent flooring solution for bathrooms, kitchens, and any other room in your home that may experience more moisture because it won’t mold or warp due to water damage. It is also less susceptible to fading from the sun, but like any other flooring, it will fade over time if there is a lot of sun exposure.
Additionally, vinyl floors come with a scratch-resistant finish called a wear layer. The wear layer is a transparent finish that varies in thickness depending on need and use. If your floors face little stress and strain from everyday life, you can opt for a thinner wear layer that protects you from basic scratches and stains. However, if you have small children, pets with long fingernails, or you simply tend to drop heavy items more often, consider vinyl with a thicker finish to increase the durability of your floors.
Depending on your chosen style and finish, vinyl flooring typically costs $2-$14 per square foot. Whether you opt for a basic design or decide on something more luxurious, selecting vinyl will be far more cost-effective than natural wood or stone flooring.
