Vinyl FAQ

What is vinyl flooring?
Vinyl flooring is a synthetic type of floor made from layers of PVC and fibreglass. It's cost-effective, resilient, and available in various designs, including ones that mimic more expensive floor types like hardwood or stone.

How long does vinyl flooring last?
Vinyl flooring can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years, depending on its quality and how well it's maintained.

What is the difference between vinyl and luxury vinyl tile?
As mentioned earlier, the primary differences lie in their composition and design. LVT is thicker, more rigid, and offers more realistic designs than standard vinyl.

Is vinyl flooring better than laminate?
Both have their advantages. Vinyl tends to be more water-resistant and flexible, making it suitable for uneven surfaces. Laminate, on the other hand, offers a hard-wearing surface that may feel more solid underfoot.

What happens if vinyl flooring gets wet?
While vinyl flooring is water-resistant, water can seep into the seams and under the flooring if left standing for a long time, potentially causing damage. It's crucial to wipe up spills as soon as they happen to prevent any damage.

Which is quieter vinyl or laminate?
Vinyl flooring tends to be quieter than laminate. The softness and thickness of vinyl can absorb sound more effectively, which can contribute to a quieter environment.

Does vinyl flooring scratch easier than laminate?
Both vinyl and laminate are relatively resistant to scratches, but this largely depends on the quality and wear layer of the product. High-quality vinyl can be more resistant to scratches and dents compared to laminate.
