Sheet vinyl is also available and can cover most average-sized rooms with a single sheet.

What’s the lifespan of vinyl flooring?

The lifespan of these floors can vary greatly, ranging from 5 to 30 years. The quality of the flooring you choose will determine a great deal of the lifespan, while a professional installation along with daily maintenance can be important factors as well.

Is an underlayment necessary under vinyl flooring?

The only reason an underlayment would be "necessary" is if there are imperfections in the sub flooring, as these will transfer through the vinyl. However, many homeowners add an underlayment for extra comfort, resilience, and warmth.

Is luxury vinyl flooring a good choice for homes with pets?

This is a great flooring for homes with pets. In addition to being very scratch-resistant, they are also easy to clean, so removing pet hair, paw prints, and more is an easy task. To make sure your floors look great for as long as possible in this situation, make sure to keep your pet’s nails trimmed.

What rooms are the placement for vinyl flooring?

Vinyl flooring can be placed anywhere in your home as long as you choose the right product for the space. Sheet vinyl, for instance, is a great addition to any room including kitchens and bathrooms, because it has no seams for water to seep into. However, if it’s a basement floor covering you need, choose a product like 100% waterproof luxury vinyl tile or plank.
