Vinyl flooring installation is an immensely popular and affordable form of covering for the floor. It can also be durable and long lasting. Vinyl planks made to look like wood flooring is the most common type of covering. This comes with easy installation through a click system. The planks can be made with a texture to imitate wood more authentically. Most vinyl floors come with a warranty or up to 35 years.
Vinyl plank is available in different widths (5.75″, 6″, 7″, and 12″). The flooring can be 100% waterproof with no warping or swelling and no shrinking. Many vinyl floors do not have to be glued down or need to be acclimated to their environment before installing. Many can simply be floated over an existing solid surface, concrete, or wood subflooring.
Typically, vinyl sheet flooring lasts 10 to 20 years. While vinyl plank flooring can last up to 15 to 20 years.
