Vinyl flooring, commonly mistaken for Linoleum continues to be an economic and low-maintenance flooring option. While the vinyl category has seen tremendous growth with the introduction of Luxury Vinyl Tile (LVT), manufacturers have also beefed up their traditional sheet vinyl lines with updated patterns and textures.
Vinyl has long been popular in bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens as its durability and quick installation cause little interruption to daily life.
Sold by the square yard and cut from 6’ or 12’ wide rolls, vinyl is fairly inexpensive to purchase and install. As a general rule of thumb, vinyl installation (not including price of product) typically costs several dollars less per square foot to install than porcelain tile.
United Floor Covering offers vinyls from several vendors such as Armstrong, Congoleum, Tarkett, Mannington, and Shaw.
Mannington has stepped up their sheet vinyl visuals (coming off the heels of their popular Adura LVT line), displaying contemporary patterns and embossed wood textures as well as traditional stone imagery. Mannington offers several levels of vinyl, from their “Good” Durations line, all of the way to their “Premium” Naturals collection, which has ultra-realistic textures and patterns.
Stepping up in price slightly, customers can install a vinyl with a fiberglass backing rather than felt which adds extra cushioning, thermal insulation, and sound absorption. In addition, the adhesive used in this installation type allows the vinyl to be easily pulled-up or carefully patched for repairs. In Mannington's product line this is available under the Sobella collection. Shaw Flooring also has an expansive fiberglass backed collection known as DuraTru.
United Floor Covering carries several lines of sheet vinyl, and has many displays in our showroom demonstrating full size patterns and colors. Call 509-328-6736 to speak with a designer today!
