Vinyl flooring is most notable, and likely most chosen, for its resistance to moisture and water. Spills and accidents are easily cleaned up without damage to the floor. It’s not just a favorite for kitchens. Many homeowners are opting to use this pet- and child-friendly flooring throughout the home. Prianti’s Flooring in Port Saint Lucie, Florida, offers a wide variety of vinyl flooring, including sheet vinyl and luxury vinyl.

Sheet vinyl

Thin and flexible standard vinyl comes in 6- or 12-foot wide rolls, which are cut into sheets that are then ready for installation. These sheets of vinyl are bonded with a printed design and transparent wear layer. Smaller rooms are fitted with one sheet while two or more are installed in large rooms. The entire sheet can be glued to the subfloor, or it can be glued down around the perimeter. Standard vinyl is also available in square glue-down tiles. Vinyl is scratch, scuff, and stain-resistant. The material does not tolerate extreme heat. It should not be placed under a water heater or close to a furnace.

Luxury vinyl

Luxury vinyl flooring is available in planks that look like hardwood and tiles that look like stone and ceramic. Luxury vinyl is thicker than standard vinyl so deeper embossing is possible with the advanced printing technology that is used to create designs. Because of this deep embossing, planks and tiles do a better job than sheets of imitating natural materials. Also, the extra thickness makes this floor covering softer underfoot. Flooring is often installed by a click-together system that allows the floor to float over the subfloor rather than being attached to it. Some manufacturers offer brands that can be installed in several ways. For example, loose-lay, full spread, or perimeter glue installation is possible with Shaw's VersaFit Technology.
