Vinyl Flooring is becoming increasingly popular due to being so affordable and helping to protect against water damage by creating an impermeable layer when placed as a plank or fitted tile, the versatile way of which it can be replaced and maintained make it an attractive choice to many customers.
Vinyl flooring typically is sold in two forms, either as a plank or as a tile, both of which have their benefits of being fitted but come with their own issues too, so it's important to consider which way to lay the vinyl flooring.
With a vinyl plank design focused usually in a single direction it generally becomes far easier to fit and calculate the cuts needed in a vinyl flooring project as well providing you the opportunity to create a pattern by using the texture of the vinyl flooring in different spots to achieve the design you want.
Due to the separated nature of vinyl tiles, it becomes simple to replace any damage spots in your vinyl flooring instead of having to replace an entire floor; if only a few vinyl tiles are affected they can be replaced and sealed back into the same position which is a fantastic money saver for the customer and avoids creating a large task out of a small problem area.
It’s well known that a vinyl flooring, if sealed properly, can be great for any areas at risk of standing water, such as the bathroom, as vinyl floors create an impermeable layer which stops the water from leaking elsewhere and causing damage. Another advantage is that and dirt or stains are easily removed from the vinyl flooring due to the finish of each plank/tile being difficult for stains to stick to.
