Vinyl Flooring Frequently Asked Questions
How Do I Choose the Best Vinyl Sheet Flooring?

Choosing the best vinyl sheet flooring is relatively simple, providing that you make sure you properly research and evaluate the type of flooring you are considering for your home. When choosing vinyl flooring options, things you will want to consider include its durability, how difficult it is to maintain, and how easy it is to install.

If you are planning on having the flooring professionally installed, the ease of installation is not necessarily that large of a factor. Professional installers will have the experience necessary to make sure that the vinyl sheet flooring is put in properly, so you may have more flooring options available than if you planned on installing it yourself. If professional installation is not an option, choosing a flooring that is easy to install is the best option, even if it narrows down the options available.

Another important factor to consider is the durability of the flooring. Vinyl sheet flooring comes with one of three coatings applied to its surface, which can affect how durable it is and how long it will last. Flooring with a vinyl no-wax coating provides little protection to the laminate and is only suitable for low traffic areas. A urethane coating offers more protection, and is suitable for those areas with normal to heavy traffic. Flooring that is coated with enhanced urethane is the most durable and is best suited for those high traffic areas that are used frequently.

The best vinyl sheet flooring is also the flooring that is the easiest to maintain. Some types of laminate can be damaged if they are cleaned with certain chemicals, making them high-maintenance. Others require a wax coating to maintain their beauty and shine, which make them high-maintenance as well. A good vinyl flooring is one that can be kept clean with just sweeping and mopping with water and a mild cleansing solution.

Other things to consider when choosing flooring are the type of backing it has and what type of adhesive will be needed to install it. Backing should be moisture and mildew resistant to prevent the sub-flooring from becoming damaged. Avoid flooring that requires hard to find adhesives to be installed, particularly if the installation is not going to be done by a professional.
