Vinyl is the second best-selling plastic in the world, and for good reason. Low price, high performance, and versatility make it a leading choice for many industries, including communications, healthcare, aviation; and of course the flooring of the house. It’s not just vinyl, in general, that has grown strongly in recent decades, Vinyl flooring is now the top choice for many homes.
Advantages of vinyl flooring
Vinyl flooring has several unique advantages over other types of flooring. These are the benefits that have led to the growing popularity of vinyl for home use:
Cost factor: Vinyl records are made to mimic the look and feel of real wood, but cost very little. Recognizing the difference between vinyl and real wood floors is difficult, especially for the untrained eye, which means that homeowners can enjoy the aesthetics of real wood without having to make money.
Grain size dimensions: Vinyl floors are also designed with many different sizes of wood grain sizes that are otherwise difficult to find in traditional wood. You can choose the size of the walnut that suits your specific preference for solid wood and can be easily incorporated into home decoration. In addition, there are many different shades that mimic oak, maple, cherries, and other types of wood. The design options here are literally limited by your imagination.
Durability: Vinyl floors are one of the strongest types of floors on the market; absolutely stronger than real wood. This type of flooring is great for areas with heavy domestic traffic and is not nearly as easily affected by scratches, bumps, and other defects as is common with wooden floors. In addition, the floor is not waterproof, which means that it can be installed almost anywhere in the house, including sensitive areas such as the kitchen or cellar.
Installation: Vinyl floors are one of the simplest floors for installation in any type of space. Although it is recommended that you get an expert for this job, self-employed enthusiasts with the appropriate knowledge and experience can easily lay the floor without having to pay additional costs for the expert. Installation can be quick, professional, and smooth with little or no clutter or dirt, which is true for hardwood floors.
Comfort: Vinyl records are comfortable underfoot, and can be installed in high-traffic areas. The panels also add another layer of insulation, making them a great choice for greater sound insulation. The floor also does not make noise underfoot, as is the case with real wood floors.
Maintenance: Vinyl is very easy to maintain and only requires vacuuming followed by washing with a wet cloth or mop. The floor is also not easily stained, so it is ideal for households with pets and small children.
Repair: Over time, several repairs may be needed to return the floor to its original condition. The advantage of vinyl records is that they are easy to replace and inexpensive. You don’t have to take off the whole floor to replace it, just work on the problem areas and your floor will return to its former glory.
