Vinyl flooring is a cost-effective choice for all homeowners. Long lasting vinyl has come a long way from its origins in the 1950’s. The current versions of vinyl range from classic sheet and solid vinyl to the latest option, luxury vinyl tile.

Colors & Variety: Modern vinyl flooring can mimic any flooring style at a fraction of the price. If you’re looking to remodel your home on a budget, vinyl may be the answer for you. If you want the sleek look of slate or the warming elegance of hardwood, vinyl can satisfy that at a much lower cost. Vinyl with colored chips or other additives will give your flooring a unique textured look.

Three Main Types: Sheet Vinyl: This style comes in large rolls with a width between 6 to 12 feet and is cut to fit your room. If two rolls need to be used, there will be a small seam or grout line in your floor. Typically, sheet vinyl is backed with felt so it will give your floor extra bounce and insulation. This will keep both your feet and your Walnut Creek home warmer.

Solid Vinyl Tile: Tiles come in two types of either 1-foot squares or strips of three. Since these pieces have an adhesive back, installation can be done quickly and with ease. Depending on the condition of your current floor, these tiles can even be applied on top of it with relative ease.

Luxury Vinyl Tile: The top-tier version of vinyl, luxury vinyl can imitate virtually any type of flooring. Modern printing technology can create a realistic image of stone, hardwood, or tile. Luxury vinyl can come in a wide range of sizes, from plank to rectangle to stone-like tiles.

Reliability & Maintenance: Vinyl flooring can last for up to 20 years with proper care and maintenance. Vinyl is the perfect option for any room, especially areas with heavy foot traffic like the kitchen, entryways, and bathrooms. Designed to resist stains, mold, mildew, and scratches, vinyl will give you both peace of mind and style in any room of the house. Unlike some other flooring choices, vinyl holds up well to traffic and soiling. Nearly any mess can easily be cleaned with a broom and a mop.
