Vinyl flooring has come a long way

When you think of affordable flooring, sheet vinyl is likely the first material that comes to mind. It's been a flooring staple for decades, and it has served homeowners well. It resists daily wear and tear, and it does not become damaged when it gets wet. Also, vinyl flooring is easy to clean. With so many styles available, you are sure to find the perfect floor covering to complement room decor. Carpet World is a full-service flooring store that offers a wide variety of sheet vinyl products. Our showroom is located in Fargo, North Dakota.

Sheet vinyl flooring

Sheet vinyl is a synthetic flooring material that is composed of multiple layers. The fiberglass layer ensures that the sheet stays flat on the subfloor. A cushioned backing layer protects the other layers and makes the sheet more comfortable to walk on. Lastly, the design layer is covered with a finish that offers protection from stains and abrasion. Sheet vinyl flooring comes in 6- or 12-foot wide rolls cut to size for each job. The floor in a small room can be covered by one sheet. Two or three sheets are needed for larger rooms. Water won't soak the subfloor when there are no or few seams.

Vinyl flooring installation

Sheet vinyl is glued to the subfloor, and then installers place transition strips between rooms and molding around the room. The sheet can be attached to the subfloor around the room's perimeter, or the entire sheet can be fastened down with an adhesive. Installers may place underlayment on uneven floors. Loose lay is a less permanent flooring option. This type of floor covering is designed to take advantage of friction to stay in place. Double-sided tape can also be used, especially around doorways where a lot of foot traffic can be expected.
