Earthscapes  Warranties  Care & Maintenance  Vinyl FAQs  Home



Intro to Vinyl Flooring


Practical. Modern. Flexible. Depending on grade, resilient vinyl flooring can fit any style and budget. Relatively inexpensive, yet durable and easy to maintain, vinyl is available in an amazing selection of colors and patterns to complement virtually any decor.


Vinyl is offered with three different types of wear surfaces — vinyl no-wax, urethane and enhanced urethane.


Once a breakthrough flooring technology, no-wax is now basically an entry-level surface which still offers some resistance to scuffs and stains, but lacks the durability and low maintenance properties of urethane. For even tougher resistance to black heel marks, dirt and most household chemicals, enhanced urethane is the solution. In addition to choices in wear surface and grade, vinyl comes in both individual tiles and sheets.


Vinyl can be installed over most any surface and is especially well popular in kitchens and bathrooms (if moisture rated by the manufacturer). Most vinyl just requires routine sweeping and mopping.



Vinyl Flooring Information & Recommendations


Highly affordable, easy to maintain and available in an endless variety of patterns and colors, vinyl is the most popular flooring choice. While typically not recommended for formal rooms, vinyl is an excellent flooring option for many other areas of the home.  Consider this vinyl flooring information when choosing vinyl floors for your home.


Easy to clean and maintain, durable vinyl is right at home in high traffic areas such as kitchens, baths, playrooms, mudrooms, and entranceways. In most cases, it also has a high degree of moisture resistance to spills, which reinforces its suitability for kitchens and baths.


Generally, we would suggest an enhanced urethane wear surface due to its tougher resistance to black heel marks, dirt, and household chemicals, which all tend to accompany high traffic.


Another consideration, when comparing is that vinyl is resilient flooring. This means it gives a little bit, which can be much easier on the back and legs than hard materials like tile if you are on your feet a lot, such as in the kitchen.
