Vinyl Flooring Ipswich – Domestic and Commercial

Vinyl Flooring Ipswich

Just a few years ago, vinyl flooring became the ugly duckling as flooring choices for businesses and high-end homes went. It gained an unwarranted reputation for being delicate and short-lived. However, we are pleased to report that is no longer the case.

Although the criticisms may have been true of previous forms of vinyl, modern developments have significantly improved luxury vinyl flooring as an excellent option for high-traffic areas. As it is 100% water-resistant and incredibly low-maintenance, luxury vinyl has big advantages over other floor types, delivering the pleasing aesthetics of tile or wood without the hefty price tag.

For the eco-conscious consumer, luxury vinyl is the environmentally friendly option. When your vinyl flooring needs to be replaced many years in the future, it lends itself to be easily recycled. In fact, vinyl itself is often made using recycled components. Close to 99% of all vinyl produced consist of reused fragments from old floors. Not only will luxury vinyl increase the value of your property, it will also reduce your carbon footprint.

What are the benefits of vinyl flooring?

Vinyl floors are perfect for busy areas. First of all, vinyl is cheaper than materials harvested directly from nature while at the same time still provide the look of tile or wood. Vinyl planks can be had for a fraction of the price of hardwood or plush ceramic tiles.

As vinyl is 100% water-resistant, it’s perfect for use in kitchens, bathrooms, or areas with pets or young children. To increase its already notable water resistance, luxury vinyl planks can be fitted with glue. This forms an entirely waterproof option that will handle all the accidents and spills everyday life might throw at it.

Cleaning vinyl floors is a very simple process. All that’s required is to use a vinyl-safe cleaning product. This saves a great deal of time when compared to dealing with wood or other floor types. In addition, vinyl is resistant to stains, which adds to the durability of your fitting.

Unlike wood or tile, vinyl doesn’t echo noise but instead absorbs it. This helps to decrease sound in large open spaces or places where people are often in open discussion. Vinyl is also very comfortable to walk on. Those around you will be silent and any pressure on your joints will be relieved if you tend to spend a great deal of time on your feet.

As an additional bonus for those who often suffer from electric shocks, vinyl has positive anti-static properties. Moving furniture or boxes around won’t cause unnecessary electrical buildup. You can also walk around your home wearing socks without concern of getting shocked!

How can you choose the right vinyl flooring?

Luxury vinyl flooring planks are fortified with fiberglass to increase their durability. Still, vinyl can be easily damaged if not properly fitted. Most fittings are performed by expert fitters to ensure the floor remains unblemished.

Fitting vinyl floors requires a perfectly smooth surface underneath to reduce any noticeable imperfections. Over time, these bumps cause wear and tear, resulting in holes in the floor’s surface. While it’s certainly possible to fit vinyl atop granite, cement, laminate, tile, or other flat surfaces, plywood subfloors are the best and most common option to make sure your floor remains flush and damage-free.

Working with experienced flooring fitters guarantees your vinyl investment will stand the test of time. Damage from improper fittings will result in needing to replace your floor much sooner than planned.
