Facts About Vinyl Flooring
Vinyl is growing in popularity in the flooring market. Many people view vinyl as a cheap product, because for many years that’s what it was. But recent advances in manufacturing technology have made vinyl a highly-functioning and durable floor that can stand up to more expensive options like hardwood and tile.
Vinyl is a nickname for polyvinyl chloride, commonly referred to as PVC. Vinyl is combined with pigments and other materials that change its color, flexibility, and durability. Vinyl flooring is manufactured in tiles/planks, or in long rolls of vinyl sheets. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is a relatively new flooring product that uses a high concentration of vinyl that contains a high-quality image layer and textured surface that accurately replicates the appearance and feel of hardwood, ceramic, and more. LVT is among the higher-priced vinyl products, but there is a vinyl flooring solution available at pretty much any price point!
